Talks: Madame Zhang Meifang on the conference call with the NI leaders

The Executive Office has refused to release details of a controversial video conference call between the First and deputy First Ministers and the Chinese consul general in Belfast, claiming it could harm relations between Northern Ireland and China.

It was reported that Arlene Foster and Michelle O'Neill told Madame Zhang Meifang they "understand and respect" Hong Kong's new security law imposed by China. They later said that reports from the meeting in July had misrepresented their views.
