Beijing blames West for Hong Kong unrest

PressTV 22 views

The US senate has approved a bill that would impose sanctions on China for what it calls undermining Hong Kong’s autonomy.

The bill targets Chinese officials and Hong Kong’s police as well as banks that conduct significant transactions with them. The draft, however, still needs to be approved by the House of Representatives. The vote comes as China is pressing forward with a security law that would enforce punishment over subversion and other perceived threats in Hong Kong. The law resulted in massive protests last year as opponents argue it would be a blow to Hong Kong’s civil liberties. Beijing views the protests as a plot by foreign powers to destabilize mainland China.
