BEIJING (Reuters) - China's embassy in the United States expressed "strong dissatisfaction" on Tuesday towards the United States' remarks on the 30th anniversary of the Chinese government's bloody crackdown on student-led protests in Tiananmen Square.

A statement from the embassy said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's comments on the anniversary were made "out of prejudice and arrogance" and grossly interfered with China's internal affairs.

"China's human rights are in the best period ever," it said.

Pompeo called on Beijing on Monday to mark the June 4 anniversary by releasing all prisoners jailed for fighting human rights abuses in China.

Beijing has advised its citizens in recent days not to visit or study in the United States, potentially hitting universities and tourist destinations, and it admonished remarks this week by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. The blows to diplomatic relations between the two countries follow the collapse of trade talks last month.
