Nikkei reported on remarks made to the press this morning by Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato on China’s revision on Tuesday of an addendum of the Hong Kong Basic Law stipulating the electoral system for Hong Kong. “Our serious concern is deepening,” the government spokesman was quoted as saying: “It will deal a heavy blow to Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and cannot be overlooked.” The official added that the move is bound to further undermine global trust in the “one country, two systems” principle.
