U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the attempt by China to interfere in the activities of the American media in Hong Kong may be seen as interference in its autonomy and lead to the revision of US look at the agreement with China over the status of Hong Kong.

"Recently, I learned that the Chinese government has threatened to intervene in the work of American journalists in Hong Kong. These journalists are the representatives of a free press, not a propaganda staff, and their valuable reports to inform citizens of China and the whole world," said Pompeo, his words are quoted by the press service of the state Department.

"Any decision affecting the autonomy and freedom of Hong Kong guaranteed the Sino-British joint Declaration and the Basic law, will inevitably affect our judgment (agreement) "One country, two systems" and the status of this territory" – he emphasized.
