China is preparing countermeasures against the United States
China will take countermeasures against the US in response to a bill that favors Hong Kong protesters, the Chinese foreign ministry said.
The Washington House of Representatives Tuesday The US Congress adopted «hong kong human rights and democracy law». The bill asks various government departments to consider whether recent political developments in Hong Kong require the United States to change the region’s special trade status.. Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China, and mainland exports passing through Hong Kong could potentially escape US control and sanctions.
«If the relevant bill is passed, it will not only harm China’s interests and Sino-American relations, but also will not benefit the interests of the United States.», – said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang.
«If this does happen, then the Chinese side will be forced to take effective countermeasures, firmly guarantee the sovereignty, security and development interests of the country.», – he added.
Any law must be approved by the Senate to become law. The bill was one of four pieces of legislation passed by the House that has taken a hard line on China.
Hong Kong government said it regrets the actions of the US Congress and that foreign legislatures should not interfere in the affairs of the region.
Major protests in Hong Kong over the controversial extradition bill began in early June and continued for months thereafter.. What started out as peaceful demonstrations grew more violent and out of control.
