    Yes. The territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of "one country, two systems".

    China should adhere to the transfer agreement.  They are not.  No one in their right mind thought they honestly would.  They did not even make it half way.

    That nothing "belongs" to anyone isn't a joke. There is no God who says that this is yours and that is theirs. Countries are controlled by governments or tribes or whatever and much of those have settled in for the long haul. France is not going to be changing anytime soon. So yes, the territory was transferred. The citizens of Hong Kong will be the first to say that it doesn't mean that it "belongs" to China though. I take no sides, it's just not as simple as saying "England gave it to China so that is that."

    • So when is Scotland going to be independent according to your retarded logic? They have been asking for years!
