China bars US military from Hong Kong

China bars US military from Hong Kong

Along with suspending visits by United States military ships and aircraft, Ms Hua said China would sanction organisations, including the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, Human Rights Watch, the International Republican Institute, Freedom House and others, that had "performed badly" in the Hong Kong unrest. The Basic Law is Hong Kong's mini-constitution.

Hong Kong's Commissioner of Police Chris Tang will visit Beijing tomorrow to discuss the security situation, his first such visit since his appointment last month.

"It means that police can arrest everyone if they believe that just a small number of people are disturbing public order", she said. Scores more have been detained since.

"They shoulder some responsibility for the chaos in Hong Kong and they should be sanctioned and pay the price", Ms Hua said, without specifying what form the measures would take. "They are being enacted in the hope that leaders and representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all".

However, it sends a signal that US-China tensions will continue to deepen, he told AFP news agency.

The next critical due date in the talks is December 15, when the U.S. is due to impose an additional 15% tariff on Chinese products worth about $156 billion.

Disney Releases New Mulan Trailer
Disney dropped a new trailer for its live-action remake of Mulan on Thursday, and it's packed with action and fierce imagery. It seems the live-action " Mulan " will instead focus on CGI creatures and sweeping martial-arts battle scenes.


The optimism was improved by Monday's positive manufacturing surveys from China indicating the industry's growth over the past month.

"The impact now is on confidence", Lam said. "Thank you so much", said protester Eddy Wong.

Hundreds of office workers gathered in Hong Kong's business district on Monday in support of the pro-democracy movement after it scored a resounding victory in district polls last month.

"China is not a small, poor country that can be invaded without serious consequences for the U.S., so the USA is limited to mere statements of support for the protesters", said in response to an inquiry from International Business Times.

Robert R. Johnson, professor of finance, Heider College of Business, Creighton University, called Trump's action a "bold" move to increase his re-election chances. "That is, achieving a trade deal with China while showing both his base and swing voters a pro-democracy stance", he said. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that trade talks are "going well", a day after spooking markets with a warning that the deal might have to wait until after the November 2020 U.S. presidential elections.
