HONG KONG, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government announced late Thursday the cancellation of visa-free visit arrangement for holders of U.S. diplomatic passports with immediate effect.

The move followed the central government's counter-measure against the United States.

"After the measure takes effect, holders of U.S. diplomatic passports will be required to obtain a visa before visiting Hong Kong, unless they are in direct transit and remain on the airside. They should submit their visa applications to the Chinese diplomatic and consular mission," an HKSAR government spokesman said.
