In China, said that the national security law on Hong Kong to end the chaos

The law on national security in Hong Kong is justified and adopted in a timely manner, he will end the chaos and restore order in the city, said Chinese Ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming at a meeting with Deputy foreign Minister of UK Simon McDonald.

Yesterday it was reported that China's Ambassador to the UK Liu Xiaoming called to the British foreign Ministry after the accusations against China of violating sovereignty. Earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the law on the protection of national security of Hong Kong violates the provisions signed by Britain and China of the Declaration on the autonomy of the region.

According to him, "it is a radical solution that will end the chaos and restore order in Hong Kong".

The Chinese diplomat added that the law covers four categories of crimes that seriously undermine national security, and will apply in respect of a small number of criminals, but it will protect the vast majority of Hong Kong residents.

Chinese President XI Jinping signed a decree on the entry into force on 30 June of the law on the protection of national security of Hong Kong. Earlier on Tuesday, the standing Committee of vsekitajsky meeting of national representatives endorsed the law. PC NPC also decided to include the law in Annex III of the Basic law of the Special administrative region of Hong Kong.

The bill on national security caused discontent of anti-government forces in Hong Kong and some Western officials who see it as a desire by Beijing to tighten control over the autonomy.

Hong Kong came back into the possession of China from Britain in 1997, and has since enjoyed wide autonomy. The Central government of China adhere to the principle of "one country, two systems" in the management of the district. According to the joint Declaration of great Britain and China, Hong Kong will retain broad autonomy until 2047. How will be managed the former British colony after that date are still unknown.
