“Hong Kong’s affairs are exclusively a domestic affair of China, and no foreign country has the right to intervene in them. The United States through this bill openly intervenes in China’s internal affairs, ignores reality, gives out black and white, condones and supports violent crimes of the forces creating “anti-Chinese chaos”, seriously violates international law and the basic principles of international relations, in connection with which China expresses sharp discontent and a decisive protest, ”the press service of the department quoted Zheguang as saying.
The Chinese side also called on the American side to correct "its mistakes" and stop interfering in the internal affairs of China, including Hong Kong.
Earlier, Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said the United States supports protesters in Hong Kong and is largely a “backstage sponsor” of unrest in China’s administrative district.
On November 20, the Chinese authorities strongly condemned the adoption by the US Senate of the bill on the protection of human rights and democracy in Hong Kong, which provides for the imposition of sanctions against those who violate human rights.
Later, the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced the increased arrogance of the United States in the international arena.
The head of the department, Wang Yi, announced US intervention in the internal affairs of China through domestic law, as well as an attempt to undermine stability in Hong Kong.
For several months, protests in Hong Kong lasted due to an amendment to the extradition law, which the authorities subsequently decided to refuse.
