China warns USA it will retaliate on moves over Hong Kong

China's media use George Floyd protests to criticize US after condemnation of Beijing over Hong Kong

There have been many instances in which Hong Kong protesters and journalists were victims of police violence. Some cities have seen arson and looting, and across the nation police have been criticised for using excessive force. Chinese propaganda outlets played up scenes from the USA of violence, burning buildings, harsh police responses and protesters decrying government as part of a broader narrative that western democracies are regularly plagued by chaos and unrest that would never be permitted in the mainland.

"Trump's comments have eased investors' concern about the impact of potential sanctions on the Hong Kong economy".

On Thursday, China's parliament passed a resolution to introduce a national security law to crack down on what Beijing views as subversive activity in Hong Kong, antagonizing pro-democracy protesters in the territory and much of the worldwide community.

After condemning China for over a year for purportedly oppressing the human rights of Hong Kong residents, the USA itself has been accused of engaging in heavy-handed tactics in response to the demonstrations taking place in its own cities.

Zhao on Monday said the U.S. government's response to protests at home was a "textbook example of its world-famous double standards". "Why US denies China's right to restore peace and order in HK while brutally dispersing crowds at home?" said Dmitry Polyanskiy.

State media has also revelled in the scenes of unrest unfolding in the US.

"Now, the "beautiful sight" is extending from Hong Kong to over a dozen US states. USA politicians now can enjoy this sight from their own windows", Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of nationalist tabloid Global Times, wrote on Saturday.

China has often highlighted problems in the U.S. to hit back against criticisms of its own human rights record, including treatment of minorities or most recently its handling of protesters in Hong Kong.

Five-mile travel rule should be scrapped, say Welsh Conservatives
In doing this however people must follow social distancing and strict hand hygiene practices to control the spread of the virus. The easing of lockdown rules will be formally set out by Mr Drakeford at the Welsh Government's daily press briefing on Friday.

China has insisted that "foreign forces" are to blame for the turmoil in Hong Kong, where pro-democracy protesters - described by Beijing as rioters - have marched in the millions since June a year ago and often clashed with the police.

In another sarcastic tweet, he wrote "I highly suspect that Hong Kong rioters have infiltrated American states".

Hua then tweeted a link to a video report on the USA violence with the words "THUGS & HEROES HYPOCRISY".

In another tweet he said both protests defied the law, subverted order, and were destructive, but that Hong Kong's were seen as justified by the U.S., while those in the United States were unjust.

He said the Chinese government had been "diminishing the city's longstanding and very proud status".

Chinese President Xi Jinping (facing camera) and his US counterpart Donald Trump are pictured before a photo session at a Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires on November 30, 2018. "I hope that Americans notice Beijing's restraint".

On Chinese mico-blogging platform Sina Weibo, video clips showing Minneapolis police shooting paint rounds at residents on their porch for violating a curfew went viral in the mainland after being posted by top state media outlets including the People's Daily newspaper and the Global Times.
