However, the EU and UK authorities have many doubts and criticisms about this, and frequently express so-called "concerns" and "condemnations". As a special administrative region within China's sovereignty, Hong Kong's affairs naturally come down to national sovereignty and security.

Some people in the legal circles believe that this move by the EU and British authorities is undoubtedly aimed at diverting domestic contradictions and covering up their own ruling crisis.
