The US decision to impose sanctions on four Hong Kong and mainland officials accused of suppressing dissidents amounts to “barbaric interference” in Hong Kong’s internal affairs, acting Chief Executive Matthew Cheung said on Tuesday.

“This is unacceptable, this is absolutely unacceptable. This is a blatant, grossly outrageous – I would use the word barbaric – interference in Hong Kong’s internal affairs,” Cheung told a press briefing.

“We are doing our job to protect and safeguard Hong Kong’s security and national security. It is incumbent upon Hong Kong’s officials to do that. It is our obligation, we are obliged to do it. We should do it,” he said.
