The Secretary for Security John Lee says he's not worried about countries, including the United States, sanctioning Hong Kong and stopping training of the SAR's police force.

In an interview with Phoenix TV, Lee said Hong Kong police would train with mainland departments with regard to national security matters. He said, even if the police force didn't train with one party, it could still train with others.

Lee also said he wasn't worried about the police having difficulty in procuring equipment due to potential sanctions, adding that mainland technology was world-class.

In July, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order to end preferential treatment for Hong Kong, in response to Beijing's imposition of a national security law on the SAR. The order says the US will take steps to stop providing training for the SAR's police force and other local security services.
