BBC: Australia suspends extradition treaty with Hong Kong in response to fears over new national security law imposed by China Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said the new law violates "Hong Kong Basic Law" and the level of territorial autonomy from Beijing.

According to a BBC report published on July 9, 2020, Morrison said Australia was planning to extend visas for Hong Kong residents and encourage businesses to relocate there.

China has criticized Australia's position as "total interference" in its internal affairs.




A statement by its embassy in Australia, China, said: "We urge the Australian side to immediately stop interfering… otherwise it will be nothing more than a stone-thrower. "

Since the law was passed last week, Canada has also suspended its extradition treaty, while the United Kingdom has offered Hong Kong citizenship options. Update: October
