HONG KONG — Beijing’s top representative in Hong Kong said on Thursday that any foreign powers that try to use the global financial center as a pawn will face counter measures, amid escalating tensions between the city and Western governments.

Luo Huining, the director at China’s Hong Kong Liaison Office, was speaking at a ceremony to mark National Security Education Day.
