Berlin: Germany expects China to respect rule of law in Hong Kong

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany expects China to respect the rule of law in Hong Kong, a government spokeswoman said on Wednesday, after security legislation proposed by Beijing has raised international alarm over freedoms in the former British crown colony.

Hong Kong should retain a high degree of autonomy, Ulrike Demmer said at a regular news conference when asked about the proposed security laws.
