[Instant News/Comprehensive Report]The Hong Kong Apple was published for the last time on the 24th, and the international strongly condemned the Chinese Communist regime’s suppression of press freedom in Hong Kong. U.S. President Biden bluntly stated that this move was a “sad day for media freedom,” and it symbolized Beijing’s increasingly severe repression.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, after the news of Apple Daily’s suspension of publication, Biden issued a statement asking China to “stop suppressing independent media” and “release detained journalists and high-level media.”

Biden said, “The people of Hong Kong have the right to freedom of the press, but Beijing’s refusal to exercise this fundamental right to freedom and violation of Hong Kong’s autonomy, democratic mechanisms and procedures are inconsistent with its international responsibilities.”

Biden mentioned that “this is a sad day for the freedom of the press in Hong Kong and the world.” “Punish freedom of speech by arresting, threatening, and forcing the national security law, and Beijing insists on manipulating his power to suppress independence.” The media forced the voices of opposition to silence.”
