US has responded to protests for democracy near China's financial center in Hong Kong and China's efforts to suppress it. Accordingly, the United States Senate unanimously passed legislation to protect the rights of Hong Kong residents.

The decision was taken by the US Senate last Tuesday (19).

Accordingly, the bill adopted the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act by unanimous vote of the Senators is to be presented to the US House of Representatives. The House of Representatives also took a clear stand on this.

However, political analysts point out that disputes between the US Senate and the House of Representatives must be resolved before the bill is referred to President Donald Trump.

However, in response to this, China has expressed its clear opposition today (20).

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the US should stop interfering with Hong Kong and Chinese affairs and immediately stop the act of becoming a law in Hong Kong.
