Japan refuses to join US, others in condemning China for new security law in Hong Kong

Japan will not be issuing a statement condemning China for imposing a new security law unlike the United States, Britain and others.


According to a Reuters report, the United Kingdom, the US, Australia and Canada condemned China on May 28 for imposing a law that they said would threaten freedom and breach the 1984 Sino-British agreement.

As per the statement issued separately by Tokyo on  May 28, the day China’s parliament approved the national security legislation, saying the nation was “seriously concerned” about the move, which is feared by observers as endangering Hong Kong’s special autonomy and freedoms.

Amid tension between China and the U.S. over the Hong Kong issue Tokyo is in tough position.
