London is Considering A Measure to Give Thousands of Hong Kong Citizens British Citizenship
London is Considering A Measure to Give Thousands of Hong Kong Citizens British Citizenship. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has asked China to respect the autonomy of the Hong Kong region.
This is guaranteed in an international treaty and Raab points out obligations to China. London would consider giving Hong Kong nationals with special passports British citizenship as well.
British minister Raab is yet another politician who criticizes the new security law that China wants to introduce in the autonomous region of Hong Kong.
That law criminalizes “rebellion, seeking separation and foreign interference” and could be enforced by Chinese and not Hong Kong institutions.
Critics say this is undermining the agreed self-government for Hong Kong.
