United States warned against the enforcement of the Hong Kong National Security Law, saying that the United States would treat it as a system in the future, that is, Hong Kong would treat it like China. In addition, China's telecommunications companies have been officially designated as a threat to US national security.
US response is from Washington's correspondent Kim Soo-hyung.
White House National Security Council (NSC) issued a statement in the name of a spokesperson and said the United States will do so because Beijing treats Hong Kong as a nation and a system.
The United States, however, called for Hong Kong's security law to be repealed, urging Beijing to immediately return.
It also warned that the implementation of the bill violated the promises of a joint declaration between China and the United Kingdom, and the United States will continue to take strong action against people who choke Hong Kong's freedom and autonomy.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has also ordered Chinese carriers Huawei and ZTE to formally threaten US national security.
In the future, US companies will be banned from using government subsidies when buying equipment from these companies.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the two companies have close ties with the Chinese Communist Party and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit network vulnerabilities and compromise critical communications infrastructure.
The conflict between the United States and China is at its worst, as tensions over Corona's accountability escalate and the issue of Hong Kong Security Law begins in earnest.
