US begins eliminating Hong Kong special status

Jun 30, 2020 15:09 IST

The United States began eliminating Hong Kong's special status under US law on Monday. Washington has decided to halt defence exports and restrict the territory's access to hi-tech products as China reportedly passed a new Hong Kong security legislation. "The Chinese Communist Party's decision to eviscerate Hong Kong's freedoms has forced the Trump administration to re-evaluate its policies towards the territory," US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.
