When the British government handed Hong Kong over to the Chinese government, it did so after China committed to respect Hong Kong’s autonomy. China has fallen short of fulfilling those obligations, and the House is right to call them out on it.
While calling on China’s government to honor the commitments to the autonomy of Hong Kong it made is a nice idea, this resolution is non-binding and wouldn’t incentivize China to follow through.
