Commissioner's Office: Futile is the despicable political show staged by the consulates-general of the US and certain other Western countries in Hong Kong

The spokesperson of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China in the HKSAR condemned and firmly opposed the clumsy political show staged on June 4 by the consulates-general of the United States and several other Western countries in Hong Kong, which echoed a very few anti-China troublemakers destabilizing the city, and exploited political issues to meddle with Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs as a whole on the pretext of upholding democracy and human rights. It has only again laid bare their hidden agenda to sow instability in Hong Kong and use the city to carry out infiltration, subversion and sabotage activities against the mainland.


The spokesperson pointed out that with the implementation of the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the HKSAR and the improvement of the HKSAR's electoral system, Hong Kong's economy and society have returned to the right track, and the momentum of loving the country and the city keeps building up. A few external forces, however, have turned a blind eye to the major transformation in Hong Kong from chaos to stability and further to greater success, and instead tried in vain to undermine Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability. But such plots are doomed to fail.


The spokesperson said that the interfering external forces are advised to take an honest look at themselves and reflect upon their own problems earnestly. The Statue of Liberty has been up for over a century, but ethnic minorities in these countries are yet to be guaranteed genuine freedom, the wealth gap has become increasingly yawning, racial discrimination and police violence occur from time to time, and gun sales and shootings have hit record highs. So in what position can these countries, with such pathetic human rights records, hypocritically pass judgment on other countries' internal affairs as self-proclaimed "champions of human rights"?


The spokesperson emphasized that Hong Kong is part of China, and that its affairs are China's internal affairs. Any attempt to exploit Hong Kong to carry out infiltration or sabotage activities against the mainland crosses the red line and is absolutely intolerable. We again urge the organs of relevant countries in Hong Kong to immediately stop such futile political farce, stop meddling with Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs at large, and avoid playing with fire.
