China is willing to “defend itself with determination” following the approval by the US Congress of a draft law, that supports Hong Kong protesters, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang.
In this regard, according Hispantv news agency, Geng said that no one should ignore China’s determination to defend its sovereignty against threats to “its security and development interests.”
“We strongly condemn and strongly oppose the adoption of bills related to Hong Kong,” he said.
Last Wednesday, the House of Representatives of the United States approved, by 417 votes to 1, the so-called Law of Human Rights and Democracy of Hong Kong that´s a boost Hong Kong violent demonstrations . This, despite the fact that China had warned that it will take the necessary measures to respond to US interference.
It is worth noting that, on Wednesday, Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ma Zhaoxu, said that any attempt to undermine the country’s prosperity “is bound to fail.”
In the midst of the increasing violence between police and protesters in Hong Kong, Washington claims that the approval of the law supposes support for the autonomy of the island.
