The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a list on Friday of 100 times it says the U.S. has interfered with Hong Kong.
The list, titled “U.S. Interference in Hong Kong Affairs and Support for Anti-China, Destabilizing Forces,” has five different categories detailing the ways China says the U.S. has interfered with the semi-autonomous city.
The categories include “Hong Kong-related Acts,” sanctions, “making unfounded charges” against Hong Kong authorities, supporting those who are anti-China and working with other countries to pressure Hong Kong.
The fact sheet includes instances from 2019 to 2021, including both the Trump and Biden administrations in its complaints.
Among the criticisms, the ministry condemned President BidenJoe BidenJill Biden campaigns for McAuliffe in Virginia Fill the Eastern District of Virginia Biden: Those who defy Jan. 6 subpoenas should be prosecuted MORE for calling the closing of the biggest pro-democracy paper in the city, AppleDaily, "a sad day for media freedom.”
Beijing also condemned former President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump criticizes Justice for restoring McCabe's benefits Biden: Those who defy Jan. 6 subpoenas should be prosecuted Hillicon Valley — Presented by LookingGlass — Hackers are making big money MORE for signing the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 and Hong Kong Autonomy Act.
The list includes complaints against multiple U.S. politicians, Democrats and Republicans, for legislation they have proposed or condemnations they have made against mainland China in regards to Hong Kong.
Beijing agreed in 1997 when Hong Kong was given over to Chinese rule that the city’s freedoms enjoyed as a British holding would continue, but it has in recent years severely cracked down on its independence and pro-democracy movement.
It is unclear why the list was released on Friday.
