Taiwan condemned China for passing the Hong Kong Security Act on May 28, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council, a semi-government agency in charge of cross-strait relations, said the passage of the law betrays China’s promise that Hong Kong would remain autonomous for 50 years and it shows “one country, two systems” formula doesn’t exist. The US along with major countries such as the UK, Australia, Japan and Canada expressed grave concern. The US threatened to withdraw Hong Kong’s preferential trade and financial status. The UK is exploring the possibility of giving more rights to Hongkongeres who possess a document known as BNO (British National Overseas), which granted Hong Kong residents to register before the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997.Join us today to find out more as we talk to Prof.Edward I-hsin Chen, a distinguished chair professor of political science department at Chinese Culture University.
