Albright to Skip 1 Hong Kong Rite

<i> Associated Press</i>

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright would boycott if invited to the installation July 1 of the new Hong Kong legislature, officials said Monday.

To attend “would not be appropriate,” the State Department’s Nicholas Burns said, because Hong Kong already “had a perfectly good legislature in place.”

China plans to replace the legislature elected under British rule.
