China says US will pay ‘heavy price’ for interfering in Hong Kong arrests

Beijing (Reuters) – China said on Thursday that the United States will pay a “heavy price” for its wrongdoing, after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it may sanction those involved in Hong Kong arrests and that the US’ UN ambassador would visit Taiwan.
