Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Hong Kong is ‘gaping hole’ in China’s national security, city's head says, aiming to restore political system ‘from chaos’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
In an annual policy address to the semi-autonomous city’s Legislative Council, Lam said that Hong Kong has become a “gaping hole” in national security, presenting significant risks to China, but the city’s new national security law has been “remarkably effective” in restoring stability.
One of our urgent priorities is to restore Hong Kong’s constitutional order and political system from chaos.
“After a year of social unrest with fear for personal safety, Hong Kong people can once again enjoy their basic rights and freedoms,” Lam said, in her fourth policy address, her longest.
She also noted that “advocacies of Hong Kong independence and collusions with external forces have progressively subsided, some of the prominent figures have kept a low profile, radical organizations have ceased operations or dissolved.”
The national security law was introduced by Beijing in June, after months of anti-government protests in the city.
