Pompeo declares that Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China, threatening special status

更新日期:6月 19

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reported to Congress on Wednesday that Hong Kong was no longer autonomous from China, a move that could jeopardize the administrative region’s favorable trade relationship with the U.S. and open up Chinese officials to sanctions. 

The State Department was required to issue a determination on Hong Kong’s autonomy under pro-democracy legislation passed late last year. The law also requires the president to impose sanctions on foreigners who undermine “fundamental freedoms and autonomy in Hong Kong.”
