Geng Shuang : Surely those unwelcome will not be permitted to enter our country
When pressed further on whether China was considering barring all US lawmakers who have drafted the Hong Kong-related Act from entering China including Hong Kong and Macao, Geng Shuang, the spokesperson of Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, said on
a regular press conference on Nov. 29:
You are a frequent member at our press conference. I believe you are aware that we usually don’t respond to specific reports and comments from the media, think-tanks, experts and scholars.
What I can tell you is that visa issuance is a sovereign right. The Chinese government has every right to grant or deny entry. Surely those unwelcome will not be permitted to enter our country.
China is considering putting certain US legislators on a no-entry list after US President Donald Trump has signed
the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act (S. 1838) into law on Wednesday.
Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of the
Global Times, a mouthpiece of Communist China, made a quick response and tweeted on Nov. 28:
Based on what I know, out of respect for President Trump, the US and its people, China is considering to put the drafters of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act on the no-entry list, barring them from entering Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Macao.
