Hong Kong: UK and allies express ‘serious concern’ over China’s policies

The UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand have accused China of a concerted campaign to silence critical voices in Hong Kong in breach of its international obligations.

Their foreign ministers urged Beijing to reinstate elected members of the territory’s legislature who were arbitrarily dismissed last week.

As China tightens its grip on Hong Kong, international unease is growing.

The UK and its four allies voiced “serious concern” at China’s new rules.
