China to ban visas for US officials over Hong Kong

China will "react firmly" and introduce a ban on visas for United States officials over interfering in Hong Kong, the country's Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

Beijing went on to ask the US to halt "meddling" in Chinese internal affairs. China is yet to release a list of sanctioned US officials.

The countermeasures come after the United States introduced visa restrictions on Chinese officials over the Hong Kong national security law.
