China suspends United States army's Hong Kong visits in response to new law

China suspends United States army's Hong Kong visits in response to new law

Also, in June, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi publicly stated that Hong Kong demonstrations were "a handsome landscape", and part of congressmen raked up the so-called "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act".

During a news conference in Beijing, Hua Chunying, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, said, "In response to the unreasonable behaviors of the USA side, the Chinese government decides to suspend the review of requests by US military ships and aircraft to visit Hong Kong as of today".

It comes after President Donald Trump signed the Human Rights and Democracy Act into law.

The Kowloon rally was cut short after riot police fired tear gas and arrested a few people.

Hong Kong has been living with nearly nonstop protests for six months.

"There are still five demands", he said, referring to protesters' calls that include an independent inquiry into police behavior and the implementation of universal suffrage. "But if there are more tangible threats on staffers and representatives for these organizations operating in Hong Kong, it would be a serious clampdown on freedom of expression".

The spokesperson said the United States has seriously violated the worldwide law and basic norms governing global relations, and interfered in China's internal affairs by signing the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 into law despite China's firm opposition.

"We urge the U.S. to correct the mistakes and stop interfering in our internal affairs".

"They shoulder some responsibility for the chaos in Hong Kong and they should be sanctioned and pay the price", said Hua.

Rainy day doesn't dampen Small Business Saturday
MA residents continued to make small purchases on the tenth anniversary of Saturday Small Business. The annual day is to help promote local stores in the community during the holiday season.

China angrily lashed out at the US on Monday over its continued support of basic human rights and democracy in Hong Kong.

Among the groups to be subject to the unspecified sanctions, the National Endowment for Democracy receives funding directly from Congress, while others generally draw their running costs from a mixture of private and public grants.

The last USA navy ship to visit Hong Kong was the USS Blue Ridge in April, before the mass protests broke out in June.

"If we don't walk out, the government will say it's just a youth issue, but this is a Hong Kong problem that affects all of us", Lily Chau, 30, said as she pushed her toddler in a stroller at the Kowloon march.

Beijing is deeply suspicious of all non-governmental organizations, particularly those involved in humanitarian causes, gender equality, the environment or minority rights.

In Hong Kong, several hundred people who work in advertising started a five-day strike Monday to show support for the anti-government protests.

The bill also says the USA should allow Hong Kong residents to obtain United States visas if they have been arrested for being part of non-violent protests.

"Our effort is to make sure those weren't empty promises that were made to the people of Hong Kong", Mr Pompeo said, while calling for all sides to avoid violence.

While the November 24 district elections delivered an overwhelming victory to pro-democracy candidates, activists have pledged to maintain the momentum of the anti-government movement. She said sanctions will apply to nations that act "badly" over the recent and continuous unrest in Hong Kong.
