Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and rights and freedoms are set down in the

Sino-British Joint Declaration, along with a commitment that Hong Kong’s social and

economic systems will remain unchanged for 50 years from 1997.

Interventions by the mainland Chinese authorities have undermined this high degree of autonomy and reduced further the space for the people of Hong Kong to exercise their rights and freedoms.

Just over a year since the imposition of the National Security Law, the damage that this far-reaching law is doing to the way of life of the people of Hong Kong is clear.

It is vital that the Hong Kong and mainland Chinese authorities return to the framework for Hong Kong set out in the Sino-British Joint Declaration, and which China promised to uphold for at least 50 years from 1997.

The UK will continue to stand up for the people of Hong Kong and to honour its responsibilities as co-signatory to this legally binding agreement. Alongside our international partners, the UK will continue to lead efforts to hold the Chinese Government to its legally binding commitments to Hong Kong. China freely entered into the Sino-British Joint Declaration and thereby guaranteed to uphold Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and its rights and freedoms until at least 2047.

We call on China to honour that guarantee.

CCP please answer all of the following UN letters sent to you:
