The Commissioner’s Office expressed firm opposition to UK politicians for flagrantly interfering in China’s internal affairs, and trampling upon international law and basic norms governing international relations.
In a statement on Friday in response to the unwarranted remarks about Hong Kong made by a certain British senior official at the UK Parliament and in a report issued by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the UK House of Commons, the spokesperson of the Commissioner’s Office expressed strong disapproval and firm opposition, stating that by pointing fingers at Hong Kong affairs in disregard of the facts, the politicians have flagrantly interfered in China’s internal affairs, and trampled upon international law and basic norms governing international relations.
The spokesperson said that as violence is wreaking havoc on Hong Kong, it is the common wish of people who have conscience and love the city that the rioters will be held accountable, and the violence and chaos stopped.
“Some British politicians, however, have run counter to the mainstream public opinion in Hong Kong, confounded the rioter’s bloody crime with the police’s law enforcement efforts, glorified outright pre-election violence as ‘peaceful protest’ and ‘a stepping stone to political dialogue’, and smeared Hong Kong’s legal system,” the spokesman said.
They have openly defended Joshua Wong, a political crown clamoring for so-called “Hong Kong independence”, who seriously challenges the red line of “one country, two systems” and undermines Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability. People cannot help but wondering whether these politicians would only be content to see Hong Kong plunged into the abyss of despair.
“The central government, the SAR Government, our compatriots in Hong Kong and international forces for justice will never ever let them have their way,” the spokesman said.
“We urge the UK to honor its commitment to support ‘one country, two systems’ and oppose ‘Hong Kong independence’ with concrete actions, make a clean break from anti-China troublemakers in Hong Kong, and stop endorsing the evil.”
