China considers US sanctions on Hong Kong as harassment
Beijing, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) China strongly rejected and considered as 'arbitrary and inadmissible harassment' the US decision to sanction seven officials over Beijing´s crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong.
In an official statement, China denounced that Washington once afresh used tricks such as punitive measures to pressure, thus violating laws on relations among different countries.
This is yet another attempt to meddle into China´s internal affairs, undermine Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, threaten national security and to slow down China's development.
Beijing warned that it will not allow itself to be blackmailed and will proceed with countermeasures in legitimate defense of its interests.
The White House on Friday imposed punishment provisions on seven Chinese leaders for alleged repression in Hong Kong.
