The signing by US President Donald trump law on bringing China to account for its actions in respect of Hong Kong will not affect Beijing's policy, China will go to the end in defending their national interests, the head of the Expert Council of the Russian-Chinese Committee of friendship, peace and development, Yuri Tavrovsky.
Earlier, U.S. President Donald trump said that he had signed the law and the presidential decree on bringing China to account for its actions in respect of Hong Kong. The law "About the autonomy of Hong Kong" was adopted first by the house of representatives, and in early July by the U.S. Senate and sent to the President for signature. The document envisages the introduction of sanctions against foreign individuals and companies implicated in violation of the British-Chinese Declaration of 1984 and the basic law of the PRC, which determines the position of Hong Kong as a special administrative region of China. Trump also signed a decree abolishing economic preferences for Hong Kong.
The PRC law on national security of Hong Kong was a necessary evil and part of a plan to prepare for long-term cold war with Washington in the near future the role of Hong Kong will increase, the situation will calm down, and pressure from the West will weaken, says the head of the Expert Council of the Russian-Chinese Committee of friendship, peace and development, Yuri Tavrovsky.
"Why? The Chinese waited for the outcome of trade negotiations (with the US). On 15 January this year the first phase of the (trade deal) was signed, but America's hostility has not diminished, the Americans continued to support the rebels in Hong Kong, continued to push Taiwan to declare independence, has stepped up supplies of weapons, maneuvers in the Taiwan Strait, began to send Chinese students began to pursue the Chinese high-tech firms," said Tavrovsky during an online seminar.
