China announced Tuesday the suspension of Hong Kong's extradition treaties with Canada, Australia, and the UK in response to the similar decisions by those countries, said Wang Wenbin, spokesperson for Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The three countries all expressed their concern over the newly enacted national security law for Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) before declaring the suspension of their extradition treaties with Hong Kong.

According to Wang, the move was gross interference in China's internal affairs and a severe violation of international law and basic norms governing international relations.

"The wrong action of Canada, Australia, and the UK in politicizing judicial cooperation with Hong Kong has seriously hurt the basis of judicial cooperation," said Wang.
