China must honor Hong Kong freedoms -Pompeo

Speaking at a rare media briefing, Pompeo also said the Chinese Communist Party must honor its promises to the people of Hong Kong in terms of freedoms and liberties." The Hong Kong government bears primary responsibility for bringing calm to Hong Kong," Pompeo said.

"Unrest and violence cannot be resolved by law enforcement efforts alone.

The government must take clear steps to address public concern." Dozens of protesters staged a dramatic escape on Monday from a university campus sealed off by police.

Polytechnic University has been at the center of a standoff in the past week that has seen the most intense violence in five months of anti-government demonstrations.

Demonstrators are angry at what they see as Chinese meddling in Hong Kong's promised freedoms when the then British colony returned to Chinese rule in 1997.
