Assistant to President in National Security Issues, Robert O’Brien, declared that if China deprives Hong Kong of its high-level autonomy, Washington will impose sanctions.
“Obviously, they plan to unilaterally and arbitrarily impose national security legislation on Hong Kong. Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act approved by U.S. President Donald Trump requires the State Department to certify at least annually that Hong Kong retains enough autonomy to justify favorable trading terms that have helped it maintain its position as a world financial center.” – said O’Brien.
O’Brien considers that it is not very likely that the big financial companies continue to work in Hong Kong on the background of current developments.
Reminder: China acquired a new National Security Law.
The Hong Kong citizens protest against the National Security plan.
