US watching Hong Kong situation, calls for no violence

United States is closely watching the situation in Hong Kong, a statement from the White House said on Monday. Washington added that it calls all parties to "refrain from violence" during protests.

Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport, which is one of the world's businest with over 200,000 passengers per day, canceled all flights on Monday amid protests in the Chinese administrative province.

Protests have been taking place in Hong Kong since June when a law, that has been suspended in the meantime, planned to allow extradition from Hong Kong to China. Pro-democratic protesters have been clashing with both local law enforcement and pro-Beijing protesters. Meanwhile, China has accused the US of trying to meddle in its internal affairs over the protests.
