Hong Kong warns US sanctions may backfire

The Hong Kong government urged the United States to stop interfering in its internal affairs and warned Washington against revoking its special trading status.

"Any sanctions are a double-edged sword that will not only harm the interests of Hong Kong but also significantly those of the US," the Hong Kong government stated.

The comments come ahead of US President Donald Trump's scheduled announcement of his response to China adopting a new national security law banning foreign interference in the autonomous region. Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed Hong Kong doesn't deserve the special status anymore as it is no longer autonomous from China.
