Respect our right to protect national security, HK leader tells UN

Hong Kong's chief executive defended China's sweeping national security law for the city before the United Nations on Tuesday, urging the international community to "respect our country's right to safeguard national security."

"I urge the international community to respect our country's right to safeguard national security and Hong Kong people's aspirations for stability and harmony," Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's Beijing-appointed leader, told the Human Rights Council in a video message.
