The latest headlines crossing the wires, via Reuters, cite that China has denied a US Navy request to make scheduled port visits to Hong Kong.

The US Navy had scheduled visits for two ships to Hong Kong, one on August 17th and the other in September.  

This doesn’t seem to do anything related to the trade spat, but instead, China’s denial is more to do with the escalating tensions in Hong Kong.

Earlier today, it was reported that the Royal Thai Air Force has put two planes and officials  on standby  in the event they’ll be needed to evacuate Thai  citizens stranded in Hong Kong, as protesters have occupied passenger terminals at  Hong Kong international airport  since last two days.
