US President Joseph Biden has extended the sanctions against China for another year due to the situation in Hong Kong.
“Report” informs that this was stated in the statement released by the White House.
“The situation in Hong Kong, including China’s recent moves to undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy, continues to pose an extreme threat to US national security, foreign policy, and the economy.
For this reason, the national state of emergency declared on July 14, 2020 should continue beyond July 14, 2022. Due to the situation in Hong Kong, I am extending the period of the national emergency regime for a period of one year,” said the statement released on behalf of Biden.
