US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo once again accused China of trying to take advantage of US protests to gain political benefits.
вЂњThe heartless attempts of the Chinese Communist Party to use the tragic death of George Floyd for their own political gain will fail. Beijing has ruthlessly imposed communism at any time. In difficult times, the United States continues to ensure freedom,вЂќ Pompeo wrote on his Twitter account.
Earlier, Presidential Advisor to the President of the United States Donald Trump on national security Robert O'Brien in an interview with ABC said that the Chinese in their published posts on social networks вЂњenjoyed the chaosвЂќ in the United States. According to him, this activity went directly from the Chinese government.
China rejected these allegations. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the US attacks on China allegedly interfering with or influencing US protests over the death of African-American Floyd are completely unfounded.
Meanwhile, in recent days, relations between the United States and China have again deteriorated due to the bill being drafted by the Chinese parliament to protect Hong KongвЂ™s national security, which Washington believes is aimed at eliminating its high autonomy. US President Donald Trump has already threatened to apply sanctions and withdraw the special status of Hong Kong. China rejected any criticism and stated that Hong Kong's questions were exclusively its internal affair.
The United States has already threatened to withdraw Hong KongвЂ™s special trading partner status during mass anti-government demonstrations last summer and fall. Trump said that if the PRC authorities resort to violence to suppress protests, this could affect Washington-Beijing trade negotiations. US senators and officials called for a review of the status of Hong Kong, which they said was compromised.
