Hong Kong (CNN)China will ban US warships and military aircraft from making stops in Hong Kong in the wake of Washington passing legislation supporting the territory’s pro-democracy protesters, the country’s Foreign Ministry said Monday.
“In response to the unreasonable behaviors of the US side, the Chinese government decides to suspend the review of requests by US military ships and aircraft to visit Hong Kong as of today,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a news conference in Beijing.
Hua also announced that Beijing would impose sanctions on several US non-governmental human rights organizations that have been monitoring and reporting on the protests in Hong Kong.
