update: The US State Department has released a statement in response to Chinese officials and state media accusing a US diplomatic official based in Hong Kong of interfering in Chinese affairs. State media widely reported on a viral photo showing US foreign service agent Julie Eadeh – identified as the political unit chief of the US Consulate General – meeting with leading anti-Beijing activists at a Hong Kong hotel on Tuesday amid continuing unrest in the semi-autonomous city. 

A State Department spokesperson on Thursday afternoon issued a statement calling China a thuggish regime” for releasing details on the US diplomat stationed in Hong Kong.

“I don’t think that leaking an American diplomat’s private information, pictures, names of their children, I don’t think that is a formal protest, that is what a thuggish regime would do,” spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus told a news briefing. “That is not how a responsible nation would behave.”

Multiple Chinese state media reporters previously referred to Eadeh as a “subversion expert” who is in contact with Hong Kong protest organizers in order to fuel chaos and unrest in the city. 

China earlier in the day summoned US consulate officials over the matter, demanding answers.

As well organized anti-Beijing protests have raged and continued to escalate this summer over the deeply controversial extradition bill, Beijing authorities have repeatedly blamed a US “hidden hand” for fueling the crisis. 

Pro-Beijing publications reported that protest leaders and key organizers Joshua Wong and Nathan Law had met with American consular official Julie Eadeh in the late afternoon on Tuesday at the JW Marriott Hotel in the Admiralty area of Hong Kong.
