United European stance on HK would be effective - Von der Leyen

A united European Union stance on the new national security law for Hong Kong would have long-term effect on China, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (pictured) stated on Thursday.

"I think if Europe takes a confident and takes a united position, it will have a long-term effect on China," the head of the EU's executive branch said, asserting that Beijing has a strong interest in Europe due to their trading partnership.

Earlier, the United States Senate passed a bill to sanction China over the new legislation.
