US Navy visits to Hong Kong suspended

China today said it will suspend US Navy visits to Hong Kong and sanction a range of pro-democracy non-governmental organizations.

This is in retaliation for US Congress passing legislation supporting human rights in the semi-autonomous territory.

China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act seriously interfered in Hong Kong’s internal affairs.

Addressing a news briefing in Beijing, Hua said China urges the United States to correct its mistakes and stop any words and deeds that interfere in Hong Kong and China’s internal affairs.
