China slams US over Hong Kong meddling

China's Foreign Ministry strongly criticized the United States for "making irresponsible remarks" about the protests in Hong Kong and "meddling in China's internal affairs." Beijing also strongly condemned the resolution on Hong Kong adopted by the US Senate and vowed to retaliate if the bill becomes law.

The ministry's spokesman Geng Shuang called on Washington to start respecting China's sovereignty and to stop "condoning violent crimes" by the protesters. He added that Beijing supports Hong Kong's government in its efforts to end the six-month-long protests and restore order in the special administrative region.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington is "gravely concerned" about the unrest in Hong Kong, while the US Senate backed a bill supporting the anti-government protesters.
