The UK has summoned the Chinese ambassador in London to register “deep concern at this latest action by his government,” Foreign Office minister Nigel Adams told lawmakers Thursday.
Adams said it was “another sad day for the people of Hong Kong” and that the British government has declared the third breach of the Sino-British Joint Declaration since it came into force in 1997 and the second in the past six months.
He said China’s actions are “designed to harass and stifle all voices critical of China’s policies.”
Hong Kong’s people, he added, are left now with a “neutered legislature.”
