Lanhee Chen: China Steps Back on Promise to Hong Kong

China has now moved to exert more control over Hong Kong, ending the special treatment that was guaranteed to it when the former British colony was turned over to Beijing’s control in 1997. At the time, China promised Hong Kong would be governed for 50 years under the principle of “one country, two systems.” In other words, Hong Kong would retain its own legal system and police force through 2047.

But President Xi Jinping of China is now breaking that promise by imposing a sweeping new national security law on Hong Kong that would criminalize acts of protest against the Chinese government.

The American response was swift and appropriately strong—Secretary of State Mike Pompeo formally declared that the U.S. no longer considers Hong Kong autonomous from China.

It’s a move with numerous ramifications that will surely provoke Beijing, but sends the unmistakable signal that our support for the freedom-loving people of Hong Kong will not waver.

Lanhee Chen: The World Health Organization Desperately Needs Reform

The World Health Organization botched its response to the novel coronavirus. It legitimized China’s early and misleading claims about the disease, which set back the initial response to the virus in other countries, including in the US.

What’s needed now is an independent investigation of the WHO’s reaction to the coronavirus crisis and an accounting of the interactions between the WHO’s leadership and China’s government.

We must also press for a new leader for the WHO. The current leader of the group, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has not been transparent in a number of critical decisions, all while showing allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party on critical matters. Sidelining him now would let us identify a successor we can support while empowering others at the organization who will emphasize values like accountability and openness in the WHO’s ongoing efforts.

These reforms are urgently needed. Because as long as the organization plays the role it does, lives are at stake.
