The Cabinet says it supports Hong Kong’s democratic movement.
Hong Kong has seen weeks of protests since early June, protests that show no signs of abating. Theprotests began in response to a controversial extradition bill that would have allowed the extradition of criminal suspects from the territory to Mainland China. The bill has since been suspended, but protestors continue to demand that it be withdrawn entirely and to call for more freedoms.
Speaking at a press conference, Cabinet spokeswoman Kolas Yotaka spoke about the Taiwanese government’s stance on the protests.
