中国的决定不符合《香港基本法》（Hong Kong Basic Law）及其根据在联合国登记的具有法律约束力的《中英联合声明》（Sino-British Joint Declaration）之原则做出的国际承诺。拟议的国家安全法可严重破坏“一国两制”的原则和该领土的高度自治。此事将对促使香港多年繁荣和成功的体系造成危害。
G7 Foreign Ministers’ Statement on Hong Kong
We, the Foreign Ministers of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the High Representative of the European Union underscore our grave concern regarding China’s decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong.
China’s decision is not in conformity with the Hong Kong Basic Law and its international commitments under the principles of the legally binding, UN-registered Sino-British Joint Declaration. The proposed national security law would risk seriously undermining the “One Country, Two Systems” principle and the territory’s high degree of autonomy. It would jeopardize the system which has allowed Hong Kong to flourish and made it a success over many years.
We strongly urge the Government of China to re-consider this decision.
