Johnson: UK to create citizenship route for HK

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday Britain will introduce a new route for Hong Kongers with British National Overseas (BNO) passports to British citizenship.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab further explained those individuals will be given the right to remain in the UK for five years, offering them a chance to settle down, study or work, and later apply for full citizenship.

This announcement comes as a response to the Hong Kong national security law passed by China, which Johnson described as a "clear and serious breach of the Sino-British Joint Declaration."
