Commissioner's Office urges the US side to abandon its wishful thinking of obstructing China's full and faithful implementation of One Country, Two Systems

The spokesperson of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China in the HKSAR expressed indignation and condemnation over the so called “continuation of the national emergency with respect to Hong Kong” and the extension of relevant Hong Kong-related sanctions announced by the White House on July 7, which constitutes another proof of US unrepentant interference. The spokesperson strongly disapproved and firmly opposed repeated US meddling in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs.

The spokesperson said that the US side, in an attempt to disrupt Hong Kong and suppress China, deliberately distorts One Country, Two Systems, wantonly interferes in Hong Kong affairs, emboldens anti-China, destabilizing forces in Hong Kong, and plays up Hong Kong-related issues on various international occasions. These acts have grossly trampled on international law and the basic norms governing international relations, gravely endangered China’s sovereignty, security and development interests, and severely undermined prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. However, the US side talks black into white. It has claimed that actions taken by the Chinese side in Hong Kong pose a threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the US, and arbitrarily passed Hong Kong-related sanctions through legislation and executive order. This kind of unscrupulous gangster logic and self-centered hegemonic act has long been notorious and despised by people around the world.

The spokesperson pointed out that the firm resolve of the Chinese government and people to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests should not be underestimated; the common will of Hong Kong society to defend the rule of law, prosperity and stability of the HKSAR should not be misread; and the historical trend of the HKSAR, with protection of the national security law and the improved electoral system, from chaos to stability then to greater prosperity is irreversible. This year celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and it has been 24 years since Hong Kong’s return to the motherland. Long gone are the days when external forces arbitrarily meddled with Hong Kong affairs; long gone are the days when one colluded with anti-China, destabilizing forces to create disorder in Hong Kong; and long gone are the days when others could force us to tolerate actions that will harm our national sovereignty and security through pressure and sanctions.

The spokesperson stressed that the US side has made too many misjudgments on Hong Kong related issues, taken too many erroneous acts, and left too many stains. We urge the US side to reflect on itself, change course, and observe international law and the basic norms governing international relations. It must stop distorting One Country, Two Systems, stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs, and abandon any wishful thinking of obstructing China’s full and faithful implementation of One Country, Two Systems through pressure and sanctions; otherwise, it will be resolutely opposed by all the Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots.
