Issue:(Cross-Strait Issues)
(NY Times, By Keith Bradsher and Alexandra Stevenson) Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Saturday announced a temporarily suspension of the controversial extradition bill. Sources close to the Hong Kong government claim that the suspension is intended to slow and weaken opposition to the bill, at which point the bill can be reintroduced. Protest and activist groups however have continued to call for a full withdraw of the bill, not just a temporarily suspension. <Accessed 2019-06-15>
