UK stands by Hong Kong as China plans security law
Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab has made a statement in the House of Commons on the situation in Hong Kong and China.
He said: If China does not reconsider its approach – but if not the UK will just not look away when it comes to the people of Hong Kong we will stand by them we will live up to our responsibilities.
The UK and US said at a private session of the UN Security Council that the law would curtail the city’s freedoms.
China, which blocked a formal meeting, warned them to “stop interfering”.
Hong Kong’s autonomy is guaranteed by the 1997 agreement under which it was returned to China from the UK.
It enjoys some freedoms – of the press and association – unseen in mainland China.
But there are fears the proposed law – which has sparked a wave of anti-mainland protests – could end Hong Kong’s unique status.
This week, Britain said that if China went forward with the law, it could offer British National (Overseas) passport holders a path to UK citizenship.
