National security legislation to maintain HKSAR's stability: official

The draft law on safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) will help solidify the city's stability and prosperity, said HKSAR's Secretary for Food and Health Sophia Chan Siu-chee in an interview with China Central Television. The legislation is proof that the nation is the most powerful backing of Hong Kong's development as it targets illegal separatist activities and street violence that plagued the city during the past year, she added.
