The social chaos, including rioting, in Hong Kong that has led to an economic crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic pose the greatest challenge to Hong Kong since its return to China in 1997. The mayhem caused by the violent protesters prompted the National People's Congress pass the national security law in June last year to stem the growing risk of separatism and restore order in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, so the city's residents could resume normal economic and other activities. Thanks to the implementation of the national security law, Hong Kong is gradually returning to the normal track, by overcoming a host of the difficulties. As part of this measure, the SAR judicial authorities charged 47 politicians and activists with subversion on Sunday. But instead of appreciating the hard work of the Hong Kong law enforcers to restore order in the city, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken called for the immediate release of the separatists.
