China has warned the United States not to interfere with the situation in Hong Kong. That warning follows a US threat of sanctions if Beijing pushes through the so-called security law in Hong Kong.
According to critics, that security law is intended to put an end to the autonomous status of Hong Kong within China and the protest movement against the authoritarian Chinese regime.
US National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien alluded to sanctions against China on Sunday that could result in Hong Kong losing its status as a financial centre in the East Asian region.
China threatens with countermeasures like the US taking sanctions.
A spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry said at a news conference that the US wants to compromise China’s national security and that Beijing has recounted Washington’s threat to O’Brien.
