In an unusually high sign of support, the White House said Biden stopped by talks at the White House with Martin Lee, a founder of the opposition Democratic Party, and Anson Chan, the former number two in the Hong Kong government. “The vice president underscored our long-standing support for democracy in Hong Kong and for the city’s high degree of autonomy under the ‘one country, two systems’ framework,” a White House statement said.
