US Says Media Shutdown Undermines Hong Kong’s “Credibility”

The United States condemned the closure of a pro-democracy Hong Kong outlet and believes the move undermines the reputation of that Chinese-ruled financial center, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

“By silencing independent media, the PRC (People’s Republic of China) and local authorities undermine Hong Kong’s credibility and viability,” Blinken added.

“A sure government that is not afraid of the truth embraces a free press,” he said.
