    SHANGHAI, May 25(Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks dropped on

    ** Hong Kong's security chief said "terrorism" was growing

thousands took to the streets to protest against the
move. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2D70AW   
    ** Adding further pressure were rising Sino-U.S. tensions.
The United States should stop wasting time in its fight against
the coronavirus and work with China to combat it, rather than
spreading lies and attacking the country, the Chinese
government's top diplomat Wang Yi said on Sunday.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2D604O 
    ** Sino-U.S. ties have nosedived since the outbreak of the
new coronavirus, with the administrations of President Donald

issues related to the pandemic, especially U.S. accusations of
cover-ups and lack of transparency.  
    ** The United States said on Friday it would add 33 Chinese
firms and institutions to an economic blacklist for helping
Beijing spy on its minority Uighur population or because of ties
to weapons of mass destruction and China's military.
