HK Human Rights Act hinders Sino-US trade deal, report says

 A trade deal between United States and China was now “stalled because of Hong Kong legislation,” news website Axios reported yesterday, citing a source close to U.S. President Donald Trump’s negotiating team.

The deal was stalled also because time was needed to allow President Xi Jinping’s domestic politics to calm, the report added, citing the unnamed source.

The Foreign Ministry said Thursday that the Hong Kong Humang Rights and Democracy Act signed by Trump on Wednesday backing protesters in Hong Kong was a serious interference in Chinese affairs.
