Foreign ministers from the Five Eyes intelligence sharing group on Wednesday expressed their “serious concern” over China’s imposition of new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong in what they said appeared to be part of a concerted campaign to silence critical voices. “We urge the Chinese central authorities to reconsider their actions against Hong Kong’s elected legislature and immediately reinstate the Legislative Council members,” the countries said in a joint statement. We stand with the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada in calling out China’s disqualification of elected Hong Kong legislators as a clear breach of its international obligations. We urge China to live up to its commitments and its duty to the people of Hong Kong. — Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) November 18, 2020 The Five Eyes groups Canada, the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
