Australian PM extends visas for Hong Kong citizens


Australia has announced it'll extend visas for Hong Kong residents and businesses in response to China's new national security law.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Thursday that a range of visa holders will be allowed to stay in the country for longer and be offered a pathway to permanent residency.

Separate efforts will be made for businesses, but plans for a humanitarian intake is still not on the cards.

The country has also suspended its extradition treaty.
