US labels Confucius Institute a Chinese ’foreign mission’

The US has designated the Confucius Institute, the Chinese government-run global education programme, as a foreign propaganda mission. Pompeo said the institute’s US Center is ’an entity advancing Beijing’s global propaganda and malign influence campaign on US campuses and K-12 classrooms.’ Staff will be required to register and adhere to restrictions similar to those placed on diplomatic missions

Whats key here is that the institutions are not being closed but only being asked to declare as foreign missions. "The move would allow US officials to have insight for the first time ever into their operations." If the institutions are aimed at education truly, there should be no concern. After all, wouldn't the Chinese scrutinize American programs of educations as well in their country?
