US colluded with radical elements in Hong Kong - Beijing

Chinese Foreign Ministry's Office of the Commissioner in Hong Kong issued a statement on Thursday accusing politicians in Washington of involvement in the ongoing protests in the autonomous city, dubbing the alleged actions as "criminal."

"US politicians distort facts and blindly pursue double standards, which is already close to hysteria," the statement said. "They have colluded with radical criminal elements and are insanely involved in anti-China criminal activities in Hong Kong."

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican Minority leader Mitch McConnell have commented on the Hong Kong protests as uprisings against the suppression of freedom. "Democrats and Republicans in Congress stand united with the people of Hong Kong in demanding the hopeful, free and democratic future that is their right," Pelosi said in one of her statements.
