Hong Kong: China warns US over Human Rights and Democracy Act – BBC News


China has warned the US it could take “firm counter-measures” if Washington continues to show support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

The warning came after US President Donald Trump signed the Human Rights and Democracy Act into law.

The act mandates an annual review, to check if Hong Kong has enough autonomy to justify special status with the US.

Mr Trump is currently seeking a deal with China, in order to end a trade war between the two countries.

“The US has been disregarding facts and distorting truth,” a Chinese foreign ministry statement said.

“It openly backed violent criminals who rampantly smashed facilities, set fire, assaulted innocent civilians, trampled on the rule of law, and jeopardised social order.”

The ministry threatened “counter measures” if the US continued “going down the wrong path”.

  1. Goddamn it if we have to go to war for Hong Kong I’m willing to lay my life down. I’ve been wanting to go there to help protest but never got the money for it, defending places like that is what we’re supposed to stand for.

  2. While the Chinese people are distracted, hopefully president Xi can successfully eliminate all dissenting voices in the ccp and transform it into his obedient servants so that all the hard work of Sun Yat Sen and Deng Xiao Ping to abolish imperial rule can be undone, and bring back the imperial dynasty, just like ancient times, so he and his sons can rule over China for a thousands of years and more! Long live emperor Xi!

  3. That's what I can tell:
    Chinese mainland people: Oh what are this people in HongKong doing!They are crazy! Why the U.S Interfere in the internal affairs of our country!
    someof the HongKong people: we are fighting for freedom, the U.S is our helper!
    some other HongKong people:U.S is playing us they just try to make trouble to China, they don't really care can we get the rights or not.
    American people: I don't really care.
    Am I right?

  4. This is way too funny, China must feel extremely embarrassed by this upset. They tried to shut up both UK and USA because they don't want to lose a trade fight with USA and they don't want humans to be on an equal level as them

  5. Regardless of your opinion on Trump this was a good thing i do think American politics is bullshit and the whole of the goverment is for sale but this is a good and wonderfull thing and thankyou mr trump for your suport of the hong kong people

  6. To does non Chinese or outsider who always criticize human rights in china i want to ask that do you know that China has lifted more than 600 million people out of poverty and i believe you guys know and aware that the current China is now the 2nd largest economy in the the world under leadership of my idol xi jingping, Do you guys think development is possible for China without protection of human rights and do you know that China has written the passion and promotion of human rights into their constitution? The outsider wont know better than the Chinese people themselves about the human rights conditions in China and only China people know who are in the best position have say about China’s human rights situation.
