Foreign Office Statement on Hong Kong - 18 November 2019

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office issued a statement following violence during protests at university campuses in Hong Kong

An FCO spokesperson said:

The UK is seriously concerned by the escalation in violence from both the protestors and the authorities around Hong Kong university campuses. It is vital that those who are injured are able to receive appropriate medical treatment, and that safe passage is made available for all those who wish to leave the area.

We need to see an end to the violence, and for all sides to engage in meaningful political dialogue ahead of the District Council elections on Sunday.
