US should stop obstructing law enforcement in HK - China FM

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian (pictured) remarked on Friday the United States should "stop using excuses" such as the closing of Apple Daily to "obstruct law enforcement in Hong Kong."

Zhao stressed that "Hong Kong is China and its affairs are China's domestic affairs" and that "no country, organization or individual has the right to point fingers" at Beijing's policies.

Earlier this week, US President Joe Biden described China's decision to order closing the company behind the Apple Daily newspaper as a "sad day for media freedom" that highlighted Beijing's "intensifying repression."
