The United States has condemned China's proposed new veto powers on Hong Kong.

The United States on Friday condemned China's proposed new veto powers on Hong Kong's selection of lawmakers as a "direct attack" on the city's autonomy and demanded that Beijing reverse course.

The proposed measures "are a direct attack on Hong Kong's autonomy, Hong Kong's freedoms and the democratic processes," State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.

He said that the move violated Hong Kong's Basic Law that took effect in 1997 when Britain handed over the financial hub to China.
