a major international financial center. what some protesters in hong kong have defied the national security law that's despite police warning that any demonstrators as playing pro independence material will face arrest under it well these are live pictures where police have detained a number of people earlier around a dozen pro-democracy activists at the rally demanding the abolishment of the new legislation designed to help protest signs calling for an end to one party rule in china continue as more and beijing. alright but now taking place is a press conference given by the legislative commission for the n.p.c. standing committee in the office for hong kong and macau affairs these are the 2 bodies responsible for formulating this law here in china and officials have been broadly expectedly full of praise for this law saying that it's crucial hong kong's stability and prosperity that the mainline is really responsible for bringing a lot of development to hong kong and this will allow hong kong to continue on track with that development and that residents should be relieved by this law
8:03 am
because it will bring back some tranquility that was lost during the protests that have been taking place over the past year and you really do fishel said that the main point of this law is to prevent hong kong from becoming a springboard for subversion against china and then officials really went on the defensive especially when it comes to this idea of one country 2 systems they said that meant much of the western country have gotten this principle wrong but really one country 2 systems does not mean that beijing is going to have a hands off approach when it comes to hong kong but the opposite that beijing really is the last block the buck stops with beijing with all of those in particular with national security affairs adrian brown has more now from hong kong . i think almost certainly that this new law is going to occur tale the protest movement it's not necessarily going to end it there was a small protest quite near the venue where the anniversary handover ceremony was
8:04 am
taking place on wednesday morning the police blocked these protesters but significantly these protesters were calling for the end of one party rule in china at the end of the dictatorship i spoke to one of the protesters a very own who said that he fully expects to be arrested so these people are out intentionally to test the law now i saw several people being taken away i don't know if they were arrested but the police held back in terms of using the usual sort of assertive actions we've seen during the past few weeks and months carol and the chief executive of hong kong addressed that ceremony that flag raising ceremony on wednesday morning she said this new law was necessary and filled a very big gap she also said the past year had been the most difficult of her career but she said the mainland government had helped to pull her through the storm was passing and was now going to be a rainbow but i think her strategy at the moment is to try to rebuild hong kong's
8:05 am
image any way she can part of that strategy by the way is to hire an international public relations agency which is going to be paid almost $6000000.00 to help to that end well let's bring in claudia motions a pro-democracy legislator joining us live now from hong kong claudia so we understand now that chinese officials are now saying that protesters on the streets today will be tried under this new security law i guess this is what everyone had feared that what's your reaction to this. well this is the doctor's stay and mom come i don't know i'm late and. read it test the darkest day 23 years on one country 2 systems instead and when they say day is flight i mean that day it's not and daucus flight they can say if them you can argue because they are a little of
8:06 am
a genius conducting no law and won't come it's not to be the new. it's moved by the treaty and everything is up to the interpretation and so as we speak they are arresting people and this is the home home used to be one of the most. vibrant the city and at least in asia and now we're trying to stumble home into a black hole. i mean hong kong need a car alarm says this new security nor will restore stability but this law as we know was drafted without any one of the territories even seeing the details so what does this mean then for democracy and the broader protest movement going forward. exactly as well i was saying that they say the other day is actually night and what do you try to argue based slant this on hong kong bypassing religiously and just by
8:07 am
even the government did narrow the plane yesterday morning only yesterday morning they refused to allow a new christians concerning the scene because she didn't merely think and are raging once total complete absolute control over hong kong and whether this is the end of the phone call as we know what has been growing international condemnation to the law u.s. secretary of state might bump aoe says look china promised 50 years of freedom to the hong kong people but only gave 23 what more come international community do to support hong kong or is it just too late now anyway. that everything might be just a little too late with activist i can't even talk about it now because when it comes to international assistance they would say ah that's the job missy corp oh
8:08 am

8:09 am
a global financial hub. and doesn't explain the worry because of that the number of gratian applications that sort of stand and foreign investors why would they want to do business in hong kong because they actually claim this new law could be globally applicable taiwanese or while they. support taiwan independence better not come to hong kong at all and the americans the british and so on and some for a once you have this that hmong hong kong they could arrest you for a legion that you have. said they were done something that would harm chinese national security this is the really that damn near all. read it good to get your thoughts thank you very much indeed for talking to al-jazeera

the u.s. still mags and testing contact tracing social distancing and mask usage white house health advice has been murdered in their testimony that satisfied with what's going on because we're going in the wrong direction if you look at the curves of the new cases so we've really got to do something about that and we need to do would quickly short answer question is that clearly we are not in total control right now . a recurring theme was a lack of concern among sections of the population who refused to take even minimum protections for themselves and others and their suspicion of science in general but said it is also repeatedly criticized a president who refuses to wear a mask and has been urging a return to normality these 2 parallel messaging operations and i just think it's worth stipulating that everything we're hearing today is responsible is based on evidence but the agencies represented here today have social media following of
8:12 am
about 5000000 people the president states as a social media following of 82000000 president trump's opponents in the forthcoming elections seized upon similar themes during his speech in his hometown of wilmington delaware the president has no direction and he preaches against one another. we can't continue like this half recovery and half the words we can't continue half or even us and half rejecting science but in fact there is no consensus among the republican leadership that mosque wearing should be encouraged something the white house press secretary said the president has no issue with the president has said he has no problem with mass that courage of people to make whatever decision is best for their safety and to follow what their local jurisdictions say yet the president is expected at mount rushmore on friday to mark the beginning of the independence day weekend officially there will be no attempt at social distancing a mosque will not be mandatory shabbat hansie al jazeera washington. u.s.

presidential contender joe biden held its 1st conference in 3 months to lash out at president trump over the matter the idea that somehow he didn't know. or isn't being briefed it is a do actually do to use. subtrees energy was brief and nothing was done about this that's a during which. the white house press secretary struck back at the criticism continuing her argument that intelligence departments could not agree on the rest of the information adding that the reporting on the matter was a national security issue specifically there are 2 bad scenarios that emerged from this report number one this report makes it more difficult to come to a consensus on this matter to verify intelligence and number 2 this level of controversy and discord plays directly into the hands of russia and unfortunately
8:15 am
serves their interests. president trump has made no secret of his desire to improve relations with russia and its leader vladimir putin most recently insisting that he would invite russia to take part in the g. 7 meeting due to take place in the us later this year a number of news agencies report that information about russian payment to taliban fighters was included in a number of presidential daily briefs the white house will not be drawn specifically on whether president trump actually read these intelligence summaries and answer to this question is likely to be demanded when congress reconvenes after the 4th of july holiday weekend. al-jazeera washington. time for a short break here al-jazeera when we come back as soon showdown at the u.n. fails to new tensions between the u.s. and iran. under french driven initiative to try and stop the violence in africa is
