The Trump administration has announced that the U.S. will end preferential treatment for Hong Kong, a move that could further damage U.S.-China relations.
U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday that Washington would revoke Hong Kong's favored trade status, and revise its travel advisory for Hong Kong.
The retaliatory measures come in response to Beijing's passing of a controversial national security law in Hong Kong.
In response, China's Global Times newspaper denounced the move, saying it's a "recklessly arbitrary" step, that will eventually backfire on the U.S.
On the same day, the U.S. and Britain discussed Hong Kong at a closed virtual meeting of the UN Security Council.
The EU has also expressed "grave concerns" over the law.
