democracy and human rights. we only need to look at the situation in hong kong and the one country 2 systems policy. however the fact that we have a very fundamental difference is should not be an argument against exchange dialogue and cooperation. i'm joined now by your going to hans hughes foreign policy spokesperson for america's conservative party in the german parliament the bonus talk the talk thank you for joining us what's your take on the security law that china is preparing to impose on hong kong i think the decision of the people's congress and picking from today is harming significantly the cream and between china and the united kingdom concerning the status of hong kong and to the fact that this paper. was ever a decades ago it's part of united nations. notification
