China has denied requests for two US Navy ships to visit Hong Kong, the Pacific Fleet said, after the two 
countries engaged in a war of words over the city's pro-democracy protests. 
The USS Green Bay, an amphibious dock landing ship, was to stop in Hong Kong on Saturday, while the guided missile cruiser USS Lake Erie planned a port call there next month, Commander Nate Christensen, deputy spokesman for the 
United States Pacific Fleet, said in a statement, AFP reports. 
"The Chinese government denied requests for port visits to Hong Kong" by the two vessels, Christensen said.
