Another weekend of unrest in Hong Kong

Another weekend of unrest in Hong Kong”

The ongoing protests in Hong Kong have put more stress on the already fraught situation.

"Any violent crackdown would be completely unacceptable ..."

However, a month earlier, he angered Beijing by saying that "most people want democracy".

China has accused foreign powers, particularly the United States, of fomenting the demonstrations in Hong Kong.

The US side has frequently made irresponsible remarks on Hong Kong affairs, which confused black from white and incited troubles, Hua said.

China urges the United States to abide by global law and basic norms governing worldwide relations, and promptly stop meddling in China's internal affairs, she said.

The anti-extradition bill protests in Hong Kong 10 weeks ago have widened into weekly mass movements calling for democracy and the resignation of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam. On Aug. 3, the conservative Washington Examiner called his Hong Kong remarks "a freaky regurgitation of mainland Chinese propaganda" and added: "We hope this is Trump speaking off the cuff and not him selling out Hong Kong".

"The U.S. should stand by the people of Hong Kong as they seek freedom", said Olivia Enos, a senior policy analyst with the Heritage Organization, a conservative think tank in Washington.

A spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said earlier that Britain was concerned about the latest violence in Hong Kong and called for calm from all sides.

Hong Kong has experienced another weekend of unrest between pro-democracy protestors and police.

Last week, the US State Department sharply criticised reports in official Chinese media about a US diplomat who met with student leaders of the Hong Kong protests.
