The Editor-in-chief of Chinese and English editions of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, in his latest tweet, responding to the US Senate approval of the Hong Kong human rights bill.

Hu tweeted out: “The US has turned HK into the focus of China-US competition. It’s all the people in Hong Kong, including foreigners and foreign companies that suffer. The mainland only feels limited pain. Beijing has no reason to back off on issue of sovereignty, and let HK be at US’ disposal.”
