China's National People's Congress urged the US to terminate to its interventions in Hong Kong and China's affairs.

Iran Press/ Asia: The Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature of China, opposed to and strongly condemned the passing of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 by the U.S. Senate and Congress.

"The move grossly interfered in China's internal affairs," according to a statement issued by the NPC committee.

The statement says: "The US government has fueled the unrest in Hong Kong by its interventionist policies." Iran Press reported.

"Over the past five months or so, a series of violent crimes in Hong Kong have seriously trampled the rule of law and social order, undermined Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and challenged the bottom line of the 'one country, two systems' principle," the statement read.

Hong Kong has been governed under a “one-country, two-system” model since the city -a former British colony- was returned to China in 1997.

The Chinese government says the United States and Britain have been fanning the flames of unrest in Hong Kong by supporting the protesters.

The U.S. Senate passed the bill on November 19, despite stern representations and strong opposition from China.

The legislation requires an annual review of its trade and business policy towards Hong Kong, angering the Chinese government and giving a boost to the city's pro-democracy movement.

The human rights act mandates sanctions on Chinese and Hong Kong officials who carry out human rights abuses and requires an annual review of the favorable trade status that Washington grants Hong Kong.

Another bill prohibits export to Hong Kong police of certain nonlethal munitions, including tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, water cannons, stun guns and Tasers.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved the bills Wednesday, a day after the Senate passed them on voice votes. The bills now go to the White House for Trump’s signature, and the White House signaled that he would sign the measure. 207
