 Another country following suit! New Zealand announces suspension of extradition treaty with Hong Kong

According to reports, Peters also said that New Zealand will treat its exports of military and dual-use goods and technologies to Hong Kong in the same way as exports to China (the mainland).

It is worth noting that New Zealands move makes it one of the five eye alliance countries to suspend the extradition treaty with Hong Kong after Britain, Australia and Canada.

At a regular press conference held by the foreign ministry last week, some reporters asked the Chinese side about the British governments decision to suspend the extradition treaty with Hong Kong, China. Wang Wenbin, the spokesman, stressed that the British sides wrong remarks and measures concerning Hong Kong seriously violated international law and the basic norms of international relations and grossly interfered in Chinas internal affairs. China firmly opposes this and reserves the right to make further response. Hong Kong affairs are Chinas internal affairs, and no foreign country has the right to interfere. The Chinese government is unswervingly determined to safeguard the interests of national sovereignty, security and development, to comprehensively and accurately implement the one country, two systems policy, and to oppose any external force interfering in Hong Kong affairs. Any attempt to interfere with pressure will never succeed. China urges the British side to give up its illusion of continuing colonial influence in Hong Kong, correct its mistakes immediately and stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and Chinas internal affairs in any way, so as not to further damage Sino British relations.

What kind of intelligence organization is the five eyes alliance to attack Huawei wechat?

The name of five eyes alliance comes from the stamp on alliance intelligence. The stamp says, top secret - only for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Although the original members of the alliance were the United States and Britain, from the beginning, three former British colonies such as Australia enjoyed different treatment.

Since the alliance has been kept secret for many years, the U.S. government has only disclosed the alliance agreement up to the 1950s.

In the agreements signed after World War II, the United States and Britain distinguish the third party outside the agreement and the three British autonomous territories of Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The third-party countries can not obtain the intelligence shared by the United States and Britain, but the autonomous territories can obtain the information under certain circumstances.

For example, if the United States is informed in advance and the United States agrees, Britain can share intelligence with any of the three countries. vice versa.

In an article published last year in the journal comparative strategy, Lockheed Martin analyst Corey pfluke pointed out that during the cold war, the United States was the leader of the five eye alliance and was responsible for assigning monitoring tasks.

After the cold war, the US National Security Agency (NSA) realized that it could not cover the world alone, so it began to let the other four countries monitor different regions according to their national interests and geographical location.

Among them, Australia is responsible for monitoring communications in South and East Asia; New Zealand is responsible for Southeast Asia and the South Pacific region; Britain is responsible for the whole of Europe and western Russia; Canada is mainly responsible for eastern Russia, Latin America, the North Atlantic and the Pacific; and the United States is responsible for the Caribbean, China, Russia, the Middle East and Africa.

The monitoring network established by the five countries is called echelon. The Echelon network consists of monitoring stations set up by five countries all over the world, responsible for capturing all kinds of communication data.

He said Rabb would address the house of Commons that afternoon to explain how to change the extradition treaty to reflect concerns about Hong Kongs national security law. However, he did not give a definite commitment on whether to suspend the extradition treaty. Johnson claimed that he was seriously concerned about this, but as soon as his voice dropped, he played Taiji again in expressing his attitude towards China.

Johnson claimed that he had no intention of confronting China, but was seeking a balance.. China plays an important role in geopolitics and will play an important role in the lives of us and our children and grandchildren, he said. We have to have a calibrated response, that is, to be tough on some things, but also to keep in touch with China.

I will not be pushed into a position of subconscious hatred of China on all issues and become a fully automatic Anti China person, he stressed Sky News pointed out that even though he was hard on China on Huawei and Hong Kong issues, Johnson still faced pressure from some conservative members who were extremely Anti China. They asked Johnson to be more firm in his attitude towards China.

Since Hong Kongs national security law came into force, the British government has been trying to interfere in Chinas internal affairs. Among them, how to deal with the extradition treaty with Hong Kong has become one of the focus topics of British government and media recently.

After Canada and Australia announced the suspension of extradition treaties with Hong Kong, Britain was ready to move. Earlier this month, Iain Duncan Smith, a Conservative MP, submitted two amendments to the house of Commons calling for an end to the extradition agreement. British Foreign Secretary Rabb said on the 19th that the review of extradition arrangements had been completed and that he would announce to Parliament the latest situation on the Hong Kong issue.

The United States, which has previously announced the abolition of Hong Kongs special status treatment, recently also intends to terminate its extradition treaty with Hong Kong. It is worth mentioning that this statement was issued on the eve of the visit of US Secretary of state pompeio. According to the US State Department website, pompeio will visit Britain and Denmark from July 20 to July 22, during which he will discuss the Hong Kong issue with British Foreign Secretary Rab.

With regard to the British medias reports on the suspension of the extradition treaty with Hong Kong, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference on the 20th that the British sides recent erroneous remarks and measures related to Hong Kong, disregarding the basic fact that Hong Kongs national security law contributes to the stability of one country, two systems, seriously violates international law and basic norms of international relations, and grossly interferes in Chinas internal affairs.

China strongly condemns this, Wang said. The Chinese side urges the British side not to go further and further along the wrong road, so as not to cause further damage to Sino British relations.

Canada announces so-called sanctions against Hong Kong: suspension of extradition treaty

The Canadian government, which has been dancing with the United States, has also announced the so-called sanctions against Hong Kong.

Recently, the Canadian side has been gossiping about the Hong Kong issue and interfering roughly in Chinas internal affairs. The spokesman of the Chinese Embassy firmly opposes this. The spokesman also stressed that Canada and a few other western countries intervened in the name of human rights, which seriously violated international law and the basic norms of international relations, and once again exposed their double standards on national security issues and the nature of wanton intervention in other domestic affairs. They cannot represent the international community at all, and their designs are doomed to fail.

On June 29 local time, the United States announced that it would cancel Hong Kongs special status treatment and suspend providing Hong Kong with preferential treatment superior to that of mainland China, including exemption of export license.

In response, the chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Mrs Carrie Lam, said that the impact on Hong Kong was very small.
