Ensuring security, stability crucial for Hong Kong: Cambodian justice minister

Ensuring security and stability in China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is crucial for Hong Kong residents and will also contribute to maintaining security in the region, Cambodia’s Justice Minister Koeut Rith said on Saturday.

In an interview with Xinhua, the minister said he fully supports the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the HKSAR, which was unanimously adopted by the National People’s Congress on Tuesday.

Rith said that based on the principles of the sovereignty of the state as stated in the United Nations Charter, each sovereign state has full rights to make its own laws to ensure security, order, and stability.
