Hong Kong govt condemns "illegal behavior of radical protesters"; warns US to stay out of its affairs

Hong Kong government has condemned the "illegal behavior of radical protesters" and warned the United States to stay out of its affairs. Thousands of demonstrators marched yesterday to the US Consulate to seek Washington's support. Protesters in their yesterday march appealed to President Donald Trump to "stand with Hong Kong" and ensure Congress pass a bill that proposes economic sanctions and penalties on Hong Kong and China officials found to suppress democracy and human rights in the city.



Hong Kong's government expressed regret over the US bill, known as the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. It said in a statement today that "foreign legislatures should not interfere in any form in the internal affairs" of Hong Kong.



The government said it was very much in Hong Kong's own interest to maintain our autonomy to safeguard our interests and advantages under the 'one country, two systems' principle  after the former British colony returned to Chinese rule in 1997.
