Johnson vows UK ‘not giving up on Hong Kong,’ 25 years after handover

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says Britain is “not giving up on Hong Kong” and accuses Beijing of failing to keep its promises, on the 25th anniversary of the handover of the city to China.

“We made a promise to the territory and its people and we intend to keep it, doing all we can to hold China to its commitments,” Johnson says in a video message posted on Twitter, as Hong Kong marks the occasion with a visit from Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
