US imposes sanctions on 11 Chinese officials


Baaghi TV reports that the United States has imposed sanctions on 11 Chinese officials, including Hong Kong’s chief executive.

Assets and properties of 11 Chinese officials will be frozen. Sanctions are imposed on those who violate sovereignty. US Secretary of the Treasury says the United States stands with the people of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Kerry Lam is accused of enforcing Beijing’s policies.

On the other hand, US President Donald Trump says that Russia, China and Iran are trying to interfere in the presidential election. Democrats have taken the Corona Relief Bill hostage. If there is no deal with Democrats, they will have to decide for themselves.

Earlier, in response to a US order to close the Chinese consulate in Houston, China ordered the US to close its consulate in Chengdu immediately.

According to the British news agency Reuters, when the United States ordered China to vacate the consulate in Houston within 72 hours then China warned that it would retaliate and urged the United States to reconsider its decision.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the US move violated the terms of international law and the basic traditions of international relations, as well as the terms of the China-US Consular Convention.

Relations between the United States and China have deteriorated this year on a number of issues, including trade, technology, the corona virus, China’s claim to the South China Sea, and the enforcement of security laws in Hong Kong.

The United States has ordered China to close its consulate in Houston in three days to protect intellectual property and information.

The United States has since accused a Chinese scientist, who is involved in visa fraud and has secret ties to the military, of taking refuge at the Chinese consulate in San Francisco.

In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenben accused the Trump administration of restricting the movement of Chinese scholars in the country, using them as an excuse to harass or take action against them.
