China c.bank says it will safeguard stability, prosperity of Hong Kong

BEIJING, June 4 (Reuters) - China’s central bank said on Thursday it would firmly support the development of Hong Kong as a global financial centre and safeguard the stability and prosperity of its economy and financial markets.

The comments came after Beijing moved to impose a national security law on Hong Kong, and Washington threatened to respond by cancelling Hong Kong’s special trading status with the United States.
