The US State Department has imposed its first wave of visa restrictions against Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials in retaliation for Beijing’s policies in Hong Kong, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Friday.
“President Trump promised to punish the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials who were responsible for eviscerating Hong Kong’s freedoms. Today, we are taking action to do just that,” Pompeo said during a press briefing.
He said the CCP has stepped up efforts to undermine Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy by announcing Beijing’s authority to “supervise” Hong Kong’s governance, accusing at least one member of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council of misconduct, and “moving to unilaterally and arbitrarily impose national security legislation on Hong Kong”.
“Beijing’s continued actions undermine its commitments and obligations in the Sino-British Joint Declaration to respect Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy. At the same time, Beijing continues to undermine human rights and fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong by putting pressure on local authorities to arrest pro-democracy activists and disqualify pro-democracy electoral candidates,” he said.
Without naming those Chinese officials, Pompeo said, “Today, I am announcing visa restrictions on current and former CCP officials who are believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, undermining Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy, as guaranteed in the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration, or undermining human rights and fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong. Family members of such persons may also be subject to these restrictions.”
Friday’s announcement follows the State Department’s determination last month, in a report mandated by the Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 and the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019, that the city no longer warrants differential treatment from mainland China. The laws authorised the Trump administration to decide to what extent sanctions or other policy

Pakistan's Member of Parliament Riaz Fatyana came up with a solution to help the country address the issues of locusts and coronavirus. While speaking in the Parliament, the MP claimed that eating locusts can cure coronavirus.
"Coronavirus can be cured by eating locusts. If research can be done and it is proven to true that eating locusts (tiddi) can generate coronavirus antibodies, then the people of Pakistan will themselves solve the issue of locusts and the government will not have to do much," Fatyana said in the Parliament. A video of his address in the Parliament has gone viral on social media.
"Apparently, if you eat “Tiddi” or Locust, it cures Coronavirus. If you don’t have Coronavirus, it improves immunity against Coronavirus. Serious discussion in Pakistan Parliament," the video is captioned.
The video has gone viral on social media, garnering over 56,000 views. The video has left social media users in splits.
One user said, "Pakistan Parliament never fails to entertain us with their comedy." Another wrote, "Waiting for some Pakistani politician to declare "locusts" as a National food. RIP Pakistani logic!" Yet another user commented, "I have no words just Laughing."
This is not the first time that a bizarre cure for coronavirus made netizens laugh. Earlier this month, another Pakistan minister suggested an unusual cure for COVID-19. In a viral video, Fazal-ur-Rahman, who was a member of the Pakistan National Assembly for over two decades, was heard saying, "The more you sleep, your virus will also sleep and it won't be able to harm you. Hence, it sleeps when you sleep and it also dies when we die."
Pakistan has reported 1.8 lakh cases of novel coronavirus disease, as per the data released by Johns Hopkins University. Of these, 3,755 have lost their lives due to COVID-19 and 77,754 people have recovered.
More than 9.2 million confirmed cases of COVID
