China has decided to impose visa restrictions on Americans who interfere in Hong Kong affairs, Zhao Lijian, the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said on Monday, APA reports citing Sputnik.
"Of course, this is a new measure. We decided to impose visa restrictions on American people who are ill-intentioned on the issue of Hong Kong", Zhao Lijian said at a briefing.
When asked which officials exactly the restrictions target, Zhao said that they "knew this themselves, instinctively."
The Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokesman stressed that Hong Kong's security was a matter of China's domestic policy exclusively, warning against interference.
