We would like to inform you that The Chinese Government supports the Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam. On Monday, June 17, they confirmed its support after the massive protest.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Lu Kang confirmed that the Chinese Government supports the Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam. Also, the state newspaper ‘China Daily’ reported that support.
On the other hand, Lam announced the suspension of the extradition law of criminals to China. He did it after the historic protests of citizens. They understood the law as a violation of fundamental rights.
The massive protests
The main protagonist of the protests was Joshua Wong. He was one of the promoters of the pro-democracy protests of 2014 and released after serving his sentence. Also, he is known for his participation in the ‘Umbrella Revolution‘. He openly criticized Lam and urged her to resign.
Currently, protests are already the most challenge to relations with Beijing. There is a difficult situation since the United Kingdom renounced its former colony 22 years ago. Certainly, Hong Kong rules following the formula of ‘one country, two systems’. They have more freedoms than mainland China.
