Johnson: We're not giving up on Hong Kong

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated on Thursday that the United Kingdom will continue to back Hong Kong and keep its unwavering support in holding China accountable to "its commitments."

During a video message posted on Twitter, Johnson explained that "on the 25th anniversary of the handover," the UK "simply cannot avoid the fact that, for some time now," China fails "to comply with its obligations." Moreover, the current situation "threatens both the rights and freedoms of Hong Kongers."

His remarks come after both the Group of Seven (G7) and NATO have pointed out China's increasing threat to the world geopolitical landscape.
