Sveriges utrikesminister. Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden. 🇸🇪

Stockholm, Sweden
Joined August 2010
On inauguration of Chief Executive John Lee and the 25th anniversary of the #HongKong 🇭🇰 handover, the “One Country, Two Systems” principle remains key for Hong Kong’s autonomy. I reiterate 🇪🇺 concern with decline of political pluralism & respect for human rights in Hong Kong.
25 years ago, China committed, by international treaty, to preserve #HongKong’s high degree of autonomy and respect the principle of 1 country 2 systems until 2047. The EU reiterates its concerns at the removal of fundamental freedoms previously enjoyed by the people of 🇭🇰
