Hong Kong: We Will Not Walk From The People – UK Prime Minister

by on June 3, 2020

The Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday that the UK will not walk away from the people of Hong Kong as China imposed a national security law that violates the 1984 accord.

Boris made the statement following a strong hands off warning from China on the issue of National Security Laws for Hong Kong.

” Hong Kong succeeds because it’s people are free… If China proceeds, this would be in direct conflict with its obligations under the Joint Declaration, a legally binding treaty registered with the United Nations”.

Johnson admitted that Residents in Hong Kong fear that their way of life which China pledged to uphold is under threat.

” If China proceeds to justify their fears, then Britain could not in good conscience shrug our shoulders and walk away; instead we will honour our obligations and provide an alternative”.

The UK government is ready to offer a path to citizenship to British National Overseas passport holders in Hong Kong. Over 300,000 Hong Kong residents have the passports and an estimated 3 Million are eligible.
