LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s government is deeply concerned about China’s legislation on national security for Hong Kong, which risks undermining the principle of one nation, two systems, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday.“We are deeply concerned about China’s legislation relating to national security ... We have been very clear that the security legislation risks undermining the principle of one nation, two systems,” the spokesman said, adding that foreign minister Dominic Raab spoke to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo late on Wednesday.
“The steps taken by the Chinese government place the joint declaration under direct threat,” he added, referring to the 1984 agreement between the UK and China that Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy would remain unchanged for 50 years.Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by Stephen AddisonRead more: Reuters Top News »
How President Trump & Queen Elizabeth II are looking at General Secretary Xi Jinping right now. This guy evercomb hishair! Will BJ be CCP’s poodle? EU looks pretty good compared to those goons The old colonialism motherfxxkers definitely stand on the moral high ground, for sure. Stand up. They broke your treaty. Although, let's face it, you scammed Hong Kong from them from the very beginning
This should concern EVERYONE It's absurd that Britain is not concerned about the lives, peace and harmony of the normal HK people, but rather a legislation against segmentation and treason. Shame on UK politicians. But not deeply concerned about Cummings. Shameless bunch in government. A really hard situation for UK his friend China making some trouble & another friend USA taking opposition. HongKong is trapped between giant's like KuWait at Iraq vs USA. Move of UK clear near 3-4 months picture Nothing more.
Daily reminder of the racist and colonist crime you committed. UK left a legacy like this and the children are doomed Communist dictatorship is a treat to peoples freedoms anywhere Think Boris needs to get his own house in order before criticising others. Mop Top Britain deeply regrets handing HK over to China.
The international agreement is waste paper. The Sino-British Joint Declaration is rubbish. Thank you to the UK & BorisJohnson for teaching me not to keep my promises. I can breach the contract at any time without any consequences. LiarCCP CCP_is_terrorist BoycottChina ..........which means they will do nothing other than express deep concern
And as we all know, like when Senator Coolins is concerned, things are going to happen. Not. Deeply concerned!!! And... nothing else? As a Hongkonger, I think Britain can do a lot more than the so called sanction they are doing now.
