UK May End Extradition To Hong Kong As Tensions Rise With China  

The UK may suspend its extradition agreement with Hong Kong, in a further deterioration of relations with China.

It’s understood that may be among measures to be announced by the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab. It’s in response to China’s new security law in Hong Kong, which could allow dissidents to be sent from the former British colony to mainland China.

The Foreign Office has also criticised Bejing over human rights abuses against its Muslim Uighur population.

Beijing’s Ambassador to the UK has threatened that China will retaliate and has accused Downing Street of “dancing to the tune” of the United States. (📹: BBC)
