China said on Monday that it has suspended review of requests by United States military ships and aircraft to visit Hong Kong and also announced sanctions against several US non-governmental organizations in response to a Hong Kong-related US legislation.
The so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, signed into law by US President Donald Trump last week, has sparked strong opposition from China, which said it would issue firm countermeasures.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing on Monday that sanctions will apply to NGOs that "behaved badly" during Hong Kong's disturbances. She accused the NGOs of having "great responsibility for the chaos in Hong Kong".
The US-headquartered NGOs include the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the International Republican Institute, Human Rights Watch and Freedom House.
Fake news are always very dangerous and poisonous with evil intents ; so never attempt to copy US's political lifestyle in demeaning others when they are losing or being beaten to the goal posts. Evils breed evils and many horrible killings are happening in the USA on a daily basis : natural truths !
US heinous intentions and actions being practiced thus so far have been demeaning themselves and in front of their off-springs openly and blatantly. How could the USA be great as its new generation learns about bad and evil things ( arts of recruiting and training and funding separatists, terrorists, anti-government forces , etc.. as well as actions to kill and demean others ) daily as seen in the USA among bloody in-fighting politicians ?
China ought to ban and sanction all persons listed in the " Time Line : Foreign Interference " detailing those "dark hands" involved in the HK crisis .
How could the USA be great again ? To be great is never about the sizes of the cannon barrels; neither to bully nor to threaten others with powerful gun powders : blanket bombings with napalms and agent orange to kill the lands of others and civilians as happened in the 30 years long wars in Vietnam are and were just an example how horrible these NATO led by the USA forces had undertaken though were all defeated squarely by mere bare-foot soldiers of Honorable Mr. Ho Chin Ming . WHY ? Nato forces and Pentagon will never be able to understand because they were all led blindly and muted; plus, too shameful and disgraceful to even mention their total failures openly.

That would be China response. Are you scared now!!
Yes, 'That would be China response', but please rephrase your title to make it clear that was your opinion, because at time of publishing, there wasn't official word about that res[ponse. That official word came much later, and that response is right and appropriate, support!!

Closing US embassy? Never heard of that, but yes, about prohibiting US warships calling at Hong Ko ...
RE: "Closing US embassy?"
China is aware thar foreign groups and governments helping the six-month-old demonstrations in Hong Kong, singling out the US, Britain and Taiwan...
It would also apply sanctions to several US-based non-government organizations within HK.
Sanctions will hopefully apply to NGOs that have acted "badly" over the unrest in Hong Kong, including the National Endowment for Democracy, National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, International Republican Institute, Human Rights Watch and Freedom House...
