As protests escalate, Xi vows to uphold Hong Kong's autonomy

Sep 30, 2019 19:00 IST

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday vowed to uphold the "one country, two systems" principle in Hong Kong. Xi said the country would "continue to be fully and faithfully implement the principles of 'one country, two systems'" and a "high degree of autonomy." The statement comes as China prepares for a highly-choreographed anniversary celebration on October 1, including a huge military parade and anniversary gala, which protesters in Hong Kong are hoping to upstage.
