HKSAR govt. expresses regret over U.S. Senate passing HK-related bill
The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Wednesday expressed deep regret over the U.S. Senate's passage of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 and another act on Hong Kong. "The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and the other act on Hong Kong are unnecessary and unwarranted. They will also harm the relations and common interests between Hong Kong and the United States," a spokesperson for the HKSAR government said in a statement.
