Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab comments following the passage of national security legislation for Hong Kong through the National People's Congress in Beijing.
30 June 2020
Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, said:
Despite the urging of the international community, Beijing has chosen not to step back from imposing this legislation. China has ignored its international obligations regarding Hong Kong. This is a grave step, which is deeply troubling.
We urgently need to see the full legislation, and will use that to determine whether there has been a breach of the Joint Declaration and what further action the UK will take.
