China threatens retaliation against US over sanctions

The government in Beijing strongly opposed the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, signed by United States President Donald Trump, which aims to sanction China over its actions with regards to the legislative region, the Global Times revealed.

According to the newspaper, which is under the auspices of the Chinese Communist Party's People's Daily, Beijing sees the US sanctions as "blatant interference in China's internal affairs" and is willing to respond to the move.

Previously, during a press briefing, Trump announced that, on top of signing the sanctions bill, he has also issued an executive order removing the city's preferential treatment over China's implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law.
