China must reconsider its sweeping national security law imposed on Hong Kong which "undermines" the city's freedoms, 27 countries said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

"We urge the Chinese and Hong Kong governments to reconsider the imposition of this legislation," said the countries, including Britain, France, Germany and Japan, in a rare oral rebuke of Beijing at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
