Africa and Hong Kong: A New Battleground for Supporting China?

Africa Times published on 6 October 2019 an article titled "Hong Kong, Africa and the One China Policy."

The Ugandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement last week on the situation in Hong Kong that included the statement: "Hong Kong's affairs are China's domestic affairs." Ministerial level personnel from Liberia, Malawi, and Zimbabwe have also gone out of their way in recent weeks to reaffirm their support for the One China policy. The Ugandan statement is surprising in its support of Beijing's approach to Hong Kong and may portend a campaign to encourage additional statements from African governments.
