Carrie Lam: the West adopts a double-standard

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam accused foreign governments of 'double standards' in their reaction to Beijing's plans to impose national security laws on the city, pointing to anti-police brutality protests in the United States.
The comparison with America's protests came up in the chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Carrie Lam's regular press a short while ago. She claims that some foreign governments are adopting a double-standard, for example, in how the U.S. government reacts to the riots there, and how it reacted to similar unrest in Hong Kong last year.
