G-7 calls on China to reconsider Hong Kong security law

Published Wed Jun 17 2020 19:53:45 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The Group of Seven leading economies is calling on China to reconsider plans to impose a national security law in Hong Kong. In a joint statement Wednesday, G-7 foreign ministers expressed “grave concern regarding China’s decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong.” They said China’s decision doesn’t conform with Hong Kong’s Basic Law and Beijing’s international commitments, and the security law “would jeopardise the system which has allowed Hong Kong to flourish and made it a success over many years.” The foreign ministers of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom, plus the EU’s top diplomat, said they “strongly urge the Government of China to reconsider this decision.”
