China has adopted a special policy to remove Hong Kong’s autonomy. But many countries oppose it. China’s five-pronged policy is one of the five. China, on the other hand, is aware of this. He also threatened to retaliate. He blamed Hong Kong for the “internal crisis” and said it would “poke the eyes” of five countries.
The United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada have teamed up to form Five Eyes. China has now canceled the election process for Hong Kong’s elected MPs.
The foreign minister said in a statement that China needed to repeal the ban. However, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian warned that the countries should stay away from China’s internal affairs. “China does not harass or intimidate anyone,” he said.
There is a spy agreement between the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Which is called ‘Five Eyes’. “If they conspire to undermine China’s security and development, the consequences will be dire,” he said.
Notably, Hong Kong was under British rule. However, the country was extradited to Britain on July 1, 1997. Prior to the transfer, the former Prime Minister of China, Zhao Jiang, promised the United Kingdom to maintain Hong Kong as an independent country. Even after the transfer, the UK was given the right to have a say in Hong Kong’s policies, economic and judicial system, according to Pattern (76).
The Chinese government passed the controversial Hong Kong National Security Bill on May 28 this year in its National People’s Congress (NPC). The Chinese government has already passed the bill, challenging the other countries. Critics have called it a “killer blow.” The law will restrict Hong Kong’s independence.
Hong Kong, however, opposes the bill. Less than a year later, Hong Kong residents protested against the bill by holding umbrellas on highways. China has since arrested and jailed some of the leaders who led the rally.
