“Doesn't seek to expand the geography of conflict”: how China responded to US law on Hong Kong |
Beijing imposed restrictions on a number of US non-governmental organizations, and also for an indefinite period suspended consideration of applications for the arrival of aircraft and warships of the United States in Hong Kong. This was stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, Hua Chunying. According to the diplomat, this is how China responded to the White House’s interference in the country's internal affairs. Congress previously passed a law imposing sanctions for human rights violations in Hong Kong. Experts note that the aggravation in relations between the two states occurred against the backdrop of negotiations on an agreement that could put an end to the trade war between the powers.
