China Vows To “Fight” The US Over Hong Kong’s “Rights Bill”

Beijing has put Washington on notice to get ready for stiff countermeasures if it goes ahead to sign into law the Hong Kong’s rights Bills

The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act was passed unanimously by the US Senate on Tuesday evening. It was earlier approved by the House of Representatives. If signed into law, the Bill would allow for diplomatic and economic sanctions against Beijing if Washington deemed it crossed the line in eroding Hong Kong’s autonomy

China vehemently condemned the move voicing its disdain on US’s interference in its internal affairs. The US envoy to China was immediately summoned by the Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Ma Zhaosu to lodge a “strong” protest

Various Chinese organs – including the top legislature, the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of China’s Cabinet – joined in the condemnation
