The United States will impose sanctions on PRC officials and Hong Kong, which, in their opinion, undermine its autonomy, said President Donald trump.
"the United States also will take the necessary steps to impose sanctions officials of the PRC and Hong Kong, which are directly or indirectly involved in the violation of the autonomy of Hong Kong", – said trump, speaking at the White house.
"Our actions will be strong and substantial," he added.
Acute dissatisfaction with the anti-government forces in Hong Kong and some Western officials called the consideration of the all-China Assembly of people’s representatives (the main legislative body of China) project "Decision on the establishment and improvement of legal frameworks and enforcement mechanisms to ensure national security in the special administrative region of Hong Kong".
The bill, designed especially for Hong Kong, will include a ban on subversive and separatist activities. He suggests a ban on any kind of incitement aimed at the overthrow of the Central government, as well as terrorism and external interference.
UK, Australia, Canada and the United States issued a joint statement which said that the decision of the Chinese authorities about the development of Hong Kong law on national security is contrary to the provisions signed by Britain and China of the Declaration on the autonomy of the region. In turn, the official representative of the Chinese foreign Ministry Zhao Lijiang urged other countries to stop interference in the Affairs of Hong Kong.
