Prime Minister Scott Morrison has questioned China’s use of the term terrorism in regard to the current protests in Hong Kong. With protesters having brought Hong Kong’s airport to a standstill on 12 August, China accused the protestors of "serious crimes with sprouts of terrorism emerging". Morrison says he would like to see the tensions in Hong Kong de-escalated, and for Hong Kong authorities to heed the concerns of its citizens. Morrison’s call for the de-escalation of tensions in Hong Kong has been echoed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
