Japan has declined to join Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States in issuing a statement condemned China for imposing a new security law on Hong Kong.

The statement condemned China on May 28 for pushing a law that would threaten freedom and breach a 1984 Sino-British agreement on the autonomy of the former colony.
