The ECR Group endorses the declaration to abolish the new national security law for Hong Kong

The European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament is extremely satisfied with the statement to the European Parliament by President Sassoli on the situation in Hong Kong. The ECR Group welcomes the shared concern about the unilateral introduction of the national security legislation by China, which will undoubtedly have a negative impact on the rule of law and democracy of Hong Kong, violating the principle of 'one country, two systems'.

Since the new law was implemented by China, it has put Hong Kong’s freedom of speech into jeopardy and destabilises not only the situation in Hong Kong but also damages China’s position in the international community. Therefore, the ECR Group welcomes the strong declaration which considers taking proportionate measures against China.
