The Diplomat’s Asia Geopolitics podcast host Ankit Panda (@nktpnd) speaks to Shannon Tiezzi, The Diplomat’s editor-in-chief, about the Chinese National People’s Congress’ approval of a draft decision on the imposition of a new national security law on Hong Kong. The law will likely take effect later this year and change the nature of rights and freedoms for Hongkongers.
