US Intervention In Hong Kong Seen As Violation Of International Law

The US Senate unanimous legislation in favor of protecting the human rights of Hong Kong residents has not gone well with Beijing.  America is supporting the protestors who have been running a pro-democratic protest movement for months together.

Last month, “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act” was approved by the House of Representatives, though its own version. Both chambers, however, will have to come on the same page for Trump to consider the legislation to be considered. Republican Senator Marco Rubio is said to have accused Beijing of being behind the “violence and repression” in the Asian financial hub.

Previously, the Senate is said to have passed a second bill, also unanimously, that would ban the export of certain crowd-control munitions to Hong Kong police forces. It bans the export of items such as tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and stun guns.

On its part, foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang has said that China finds US interference in violation of international laws and basic norms governing international relations. The United States must immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s other internal affairs, or “the negative consequences will boomerang on itself”, Geng added.
