 Pompeo warns of new countermeasures after 'sad day' for Hong Kong

ISLAMABAD-Washington.US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Tuesday warned Beijing of new countermeasures following what he called a "sad day," as China imposed a sweeping national security law on Hong Kong.

"Today marks a sad day for Hong Kong, and for freedom-loving people across China," Pompeo said in a statement.

"Per President (Donald) Trump's instruction, we will eliminate policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment, with few exceptions," he said.(AFP/APP)
