China warns of retaliatory US visa curbs

By WANG QINGYUN | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-06-30 00:00

Move comes after Washington threatens sanctions over Hong Kong security law

China will impose visa restrictions on US citizens who have "behaved egregiously" over Hong Kong-related issues, in response to visa restrictions from the United States, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Monday.

Zhao made the announcement at a daily news conference. He said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region national security legislation is purely China's domestic affair, and no foreign country has the right to interfere in it.

The announcement came one day after the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress opened its 20th session, at which a report was made on the draft national security law for Hong Kong.
