Pompeo: HK no longer autonomous from China

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reported to Congress on Wednesday that Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China given the new security law.

"After careful study of developments over the reporting period, I certified to Congress today that Hong Kong does not continue to warrant treatment under United States laws in the same manner as US laws were applied to Hong Kong before July 1997," Pompeo stated.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam claims China's national security law isn't against Hong Kong's Basic Law.
