China on Tuesday censured U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken for saying that the U.S. should follow Britain's so-called BNO policy to open its doors to those residents of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) who want to leave the city including lawbreakers.

Addressing the media, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said countries were supposed to punish violators of the law as a matter of fundamental principle. He said if the U.S. believed in this principle and agreed that it also applied to the lawbreakers involved in the Capitol Hill incident, it should object to allowing entry to the law-breaking residents of the HKSAR.
