The United States is stopping exports of US defense equipment to Hong Kong. That announced the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday under the new Chinese national security law, which the country also wants to impose on Hong Kong.

“The United States is compelled to take this step to protect America’s national security,” said Pompeo. “We can no longer distinguish between exports of this material to Hong Kong or China.”

According to Pompeo, the US will “take steps to impose the same defense and technology restrictions on Hong Kong as it does on China.”

End of self-government

China is expected to adopt a controversial national security law soon, which it also plans to impose on Hong Kong. Pleading for secession from China, subversion, terrorism and the collusion of foreign troops to endanger national security would soon carry a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Internationally, the new law has already been reacted with great concern. That would effectively end independent judiciary and self-government in Hong Kong. The prosperous metropolis and former British colony has belonged to China since 1997, but it has its own legal system and local parliament.

China has previously confirmed that the new law overrides Hong Kong’s independent legal system. The aim is to set up an organization in the metropolis that will gather intelligence and deal with crimes against national security.
