The Chinese government has rejected a request to have two U.S. warships make port visits to Hong Kong in the coming weeks.
Two U.S. Navy warships were denied port visits to Hong Kong by the Chinese government amid a deepening political crisis as a result of anti-extradition bill protests that have swept the former British colony over the past 10 weeks.
“The Chinese Government denied requests for port visits to Hong Kong by the USS Green Bay and USS Lake Erie, which were scheduled to arrive in the next few weeks,” Commander Nate Christensen, the deputy spokesman for the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet, told CNN on August 14.
