The American Consulate in Hong Kong has rejected accusations from Beijing that the Meeting of diplomats with representatives of the pro-democratic Opposition under the controversial security law illegal. This allegation was "ridiculous," said the Consulate on Friday. Who meet with diplomatic representatives of the Consulate, do not be punishable.
In the past, had taken American diplomats with pro-democracy opposition, as well as with Pro-government politicians, said the Consulate. "These Meetings are neither secret nor mysterious."
The Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times had earlier reported that a Meeting of the Consul General Hanscom Smith, a politician of the pro-democratic Opposition didn violate the controversial security law.
The Consulate rejected this strongly and reiterated the criticism of the controversial security law. The penalties provided for drakon to be "Japanese," said the Consulate. With "security" had to do with the introduction of the law, never anything to. "Rather, it should serve to make democracy advocates silence and threaten those who do, only of your freedom of use".Updated Date: 07 August 2020, 11:20
