After months of increasingly violent protests in Hong Kong, China has decided to make its move strengthening its control over the Chinese-ruled city.
For more on this and other news around the world, let's go over to our Kim Da-mi at the News Center.
Now, Da-mi, walk us through Beijing's announcement.
Connyoung, as expected, China has invoked and will enforce policies to strengthen its grip over Hong Kong.
China's state-run Xinhua News Agency reported Tuesday that the Chinese government made the decision at the fourth plenary session of the 19th Communist Party of China Central Committee held in Beijing last month.
China makes it clear that Hong Kong will always be a part of China under its 'One Country, Two Systems.'
No challenge that threatens that, particularly in Hong Kong and Macau, will be accepted by China.
Beijing added new systems that supplement basic laws and constitutions in the districts will be introduced as well as legal adjustments to enable autonomy centered on patriotism.
In addition, the districts' chief executives will be fully responsible and obedient to the Chinese government.
Appointment and dismissal systems and structures of special administrative officers, including chief executives, will also be revised and "perfected."
The Chinese Communist Party then stressed that Beijing will exercise full control over the special administrative zones in accordance with the constitution and basic law in order to boost patriotism in Hong Kong and Macau and prevent intervention, division, and destruction due to foreign forces.
