Sanctions announced for US NGOs

By ZHOU JIN | China Daily Global | Updated: 2019-12-03 00:00

China said on Monday that it had suspended its review of requests for United States military ships and aircraft to visit Hong Kong and also announced sanctions against several US non-governmental organizations in response to Hong Kongrelated US legislation.

The so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, signed into law last week by US President Donald Trump, has sparked strong opposition from China, which said it would issue firm countermeasures.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing that sanctions will apply to NGOs that "behaved badly" during Hong Kong's disturbances. She accused the NGOs of having "great responsibility for the chaos in Hong Kong".
