North Korea on Saturday communicated its help for China’s choice to force new national security laws in Hong Kong, considering it a “genuine advance” to protect the state security.
“Since Hong Kong issue is an issue relating altogether to the inner issues of China, any nation or power has no privileges to say either regarding the issue,” North Korea’s KCNA state news organization refered to an agent of North Korea’s remote service as saying.
“We completely contradict and dismiss the outside obstruction hindering to the security and the social and financial advancement of Hong Kong.”
North Korea’s remarks come in the wake of Beijing this week forced another national security law on Hong Kong that some state could limit opportunities in the previous British settlement, and as U.S. President Donald Trump heightened his showdown with China by vowing to end the region’s uncommon exchange status with the U.S.
North Korea has recently bolstered Beijing over the fights in Hong Kong and over China’s “one nation and two frameworks” approach.
