WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the following Wednesday regarding the ongoing protests in Hong Kong:

“Freedom-loving people around the world stand in support of the courageous citizens of Hong Kong as they struggle to maintain their liberty. Global leaders should stand ready to condemn any intrusion by mainland China that would violate the handover agreement. Leaders in Beijing must understand that intervention against the people of Hong Kong will harm China’s relationship with the U.S. and other democratic nations for years to come. China should exercise restraint and allow the citizens of Hong Kong to settle their differences without interference.”
