China agitates for citizenship of Hong Kong people by Britain
The commotion in Hong Kong is not taking a stand after the enforcement of the security law. On the one hand, while people in Hong Kong are demonstrating tremendously on the streets, on the other hand many countries are criticizing China on the international stage. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson sought to grant UK citizenship to the people of Hong Kong, accusing them of violating the Chinese agreement. China retaliated, claiming that the United Kingdom had no right to grant citizenship to the people of Hong Kong. China said that they would not allow Britain to grant citizenship to the people of Hong Kong and would take tough steps for this.

On Wednesday, large-scale protests erupted in Hong Kong following the implementation of the National Security Law. During this time, around 400 people were arrested.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that violation of freedom and human rights is a serious problem in Hong Kong. Simon Cheng, a former Hong Kong embassy employee, has been granted asylum by Britain who alleged that he was tortured in China.

The United States Parliament on Wednesday passed a bill to allow China to respond to the implementation of the law in Hong Kong. It would impose restrictions on groups that are undermining Hong Kong's autonomy and snatching people's freedoms.
