In Asia, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index jumped 3.4% to 23,732.52.

Mr Speaker, as all members will know, Hong Kong's historic success was built on its autonomy, its freedoms and the remarkable resourcefulness and determination of its people.

The demonstrators are "thugs". "We support students in safeguarding their legitimate rights and interests in accordance with the law", Mr. Zhao said. The proposed law, which is expected to be implemented later this summer, has sparked protests in Hong Kong.

Hua Chunying, a foreign ministry spokesperson of the Communist Party of China, took aim at perceived double standards, tweeting "I can't breathe".

President Trump recently addressed the nation and promised an end to ongoing unrest as well as the restoration of law and order. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called the anti-racism protests "understandable and more than legitimate".

China calls on the worldwide community to further build a consensus in support of multilateralism, increase financial and political support for the WHO, and safeguard the global public health security.

Washington has been critical of the Hong Kong government's response to the ongoing pro-democracy protests, where riot police have been accused of using disproportionate force.

However, even if Beijing and its loyalists in Hong Kong try to emphasize the parallels and blur the differences between the protests, it is precisely the differences that matter most.

We will stand by them, we will live up to our responsibilities.
