SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's embassy in Germany condemned the suspension of Germany's extradition treaty with Hong Kong, arguing that doing so violates international law.

The statement on its website, dated Friday, followed the announcement by German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass that Germany would suspend its extradition agreement with the Chinese city, after Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam postponed a Sept. 6 election by a year.
