Chief Executive of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Carrie Lam said ahead of her Wednesday visit to Beijing that Hong Kong is not afraid of US accusations and threats of sanctions.

Lam said in a China Central Television (CCTV) interview on Tuesday that Hong Kong does not need to worry about US threats to end Hong Kong's special status following the approval of the decision on national security legislation for Hong Kong by the National People's Congress (NPC), thanks to the firm determination of the central government and support of Hong Kong citizens.

She felt assured when the NPC passed the decision, and if the central government did not actively play its part, Hong Kong may not be able to solve its current issues, Lam said, noting that this has given Hong Kong a chance of survival and will help it overcome its difficulties.

She also said that Hong Kong's focus will be on restoring the economy as stability gradually returns to society.

Lam is expected to visit Beijing on Wednesday, when the central government will listen to Lam's views on the national security legislation.
