By Kyodo News 15 July 2020
WASHINGTON—US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he has taken measures to hold China accountable for its “oppressive actions” against the people of Hong Kong, including signing an order ending the preferential treatment of the territory.
“Hong Kong will now be treated the same as mainland China—no special privileges, no special economic treatment, and no export of sensitive technologies,” Trump said at a press conference. He also signed into law a bill to impose sanctions on foreign individuals and entities allegedly involved in extinguishing Hong Kong’s freedom.
