China to Put Visa Restrictions on Some U.S. Individuals Over Hong Kong

BEIJING – The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the country would impose visa restrictions on some Americans with atrocious conduct related to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) after Washington announced visa restrictions to some Chinese officials at the city.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Zhao Lijian, made the remarks at a daily press conference and reaffirmed China’s determination to safeguard its interests in national sovereignty, security and development, as well as the “One country, two systems” principle.
Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington is imposing visa restrictions on officials of the Communist Party of China (CCP) “who are believed to be responsible for undermining freedoms in Hong Kong.”
Zhao emphasized that the national security legislation for Hong Kong is “purely China’s internal affairs,” in which no foreign country has the right to interfere. China strongly opposes any foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs, he added.
The United States’ attempt to obstruct China’s efforts to advance national security legislation for Hong Kong by imposing “sanctions” is doomed to failure, he said.
A draft law on safeguarding national security in HKSAR is under deliberation during an ongoing session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, China’s top legislature.
