Taiwan denounces Hong Kong after officials expelled

Taiwanese staff working at the island's representative office in Hong Kong started leaving the financial hub from Sunday (June 20), after the government there demanded its officials sign a document supporting Beijing's "one China" claim to Taiwan.

Hong Kong has become another source of tension between Taipei and Beijing, especially after Taiwan lambasted a security law imposed on Hong Kong by Beijing and began welcoming Hong Kong people to settle on the democratic island.

Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council Head, Chiu Tai-san, said the office in Hong Kong will maintain operations, but Taiwan will take "necessary measures" if its presence there is further jeopardized. He did not elaborate.
