The harsh Beijing law to suffocate Hong Kong
The Italian position is that Hong Kong’s stability, prosperity, autonomy and freedom and fundamental rights system must be preserved. Di Maio hoped that future developments will not be detrimental to the fundamental principle of ‘one country, two systems’. In order to preserve the freedoms and rights of Hong Kong citizens, including those of expression, demonstration and democratic debate, dialogue with Beijing must continue. The sources conclude that the minister said he would therefore continue to insist on safeguarding these principles together with the EU which, when it can be united, is strong and incisive.

“The EU expresses deep concern about the measures adopted by China on May 28, which do not comply with its international commitments, nor with the constitution of Hong Kong and risk seriously compromising the ‘one country, two systems’ principle as well as the high level of autonomy of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region “. Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, said at the end of the meeting.On May 28, the Chinese National Assembly unanimously approved the rules prohibiting seditious acts and foreign interference and decided to establish a Chinese political police force in the former British colony, thus circumventing the Parliament of Hong Kong, where New protests have arrived, after last year’s protests over the disputed extradition law. Today, activists gathered on the street and occupied a shopping mall with banners that read “Independent Hong Kong”.
Tensions continue to rise between Britain and China, after the United Kingdom has announced that if Beijing continues on this meddling slope, it is ready to grant easy citizenship to over 300,000 Hong Kong residents. In return, China has threatened “measures corresponding” to the British move. Beijing Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said this in response to a question about the announcement by the London Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, which would consider about 315,000 residents of the former British colony.
