Global Times recently reported that the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) just released its annual report accusing China of manipulating Hong Kong’s autonomy. The report also asked the U.S. Executive Branch to resume reporting annually to the Congress on Hong Kong’s reality. The spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs commented that reports of this type do not introduce anything new and they just make irresponsible remarks on Chinese internal affairs. The new report is yet another channel for the U.S. government to put pressure on China. The CECC report covers various topics such as human rights and the rule of law. It also covers developments in Xinjiang, Tibet, Hong Kong, and Macao. The latest report started with describing China’s human rights condition as having “worsened.” In the Hong Kong portion, it continued by suggesting the Chinese leadership’s focus on “sovereignty and control” violated multiple rights of the Hong Kong residents.
