Price to be paid by US for its meddling

CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2019-12-03 00:00

After the Foreign Ministry stated that China would take countermeasures following the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act being signed into US law last week, many wondered what those might be. They have not had to wait long to find out.

China announced on Monday that it has suspended its approval for US warships to visit Hong Kong and imposed sanctions on US NGOs, such as the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the International Republican Institute, and Freedom House, among others, which have acted "badly" by helping to incite the unrest in the special administrative region.

There is already a large amount of evidence showing that the NED, which receives funding directly from the US Congress, and the other NGOs, which receive government support through a variety of agencies, have been supporting anti-China forces and encouraging activities promoting "Hong Kong independence". By doing so, they bear "great responsibility for the chaotic situation in Hong Kong" and "deserve to be sanctioned".
