Kyodo reported on Saturday that the G7 foreign ministers issued a joint statement on Friday voicing serious apprehension about China’s adoption of a resolution to change the electoral system in Hong Kong. The top diplomats criticized the move by saying it undermines Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy and stifles political pluralism there, urging Beijing to respect fundamental rights and freedoms as provided for in the Basic Law.
