Spent few hours reading about the 1997 return of Hong Kong to China. Transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong.

Some interesting notes: Unequal treaty.

Margaret Thatcher claims that these are international treaties and should be repected. The brit empire tries to sell Opium to chinese, see Opium war, when chinese lost the war, the brit declared these treaties, which proclamis that Hong Kong belongs to the brits FOREVER, among other things.
