Chinanews.com, July 22. According to the WeChat official account of the Office of the Special Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong, the US Department of State issued the so-called investment environment report, ranting about Hong Kong’s national security law, grossly interfering in Hong Kong affairs, interfering in China’s internal affairs, and seriously violating international law and international affairs. Basic principles of relationship.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong expressed strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition.
The spokesperson said that the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law has put an end to the rampant "Hong Kong Independence", "black violence" and "speculation" rampant, the governance order of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has returned to normal, the administrative environment has improved, social justice has been fully demonstrated, and the economy and finance have continued. Strong, Hong Kong's market and investment environment are more stable, and Hong Kong's position as an international financial, trade, and shipping center is very stable. Foreign investors, including the United States, will have more peace of mind and confidence in doing business in Hong Kong!
In the past year, important economic indicators such as Hong Kong’s IPO funds and total deposits in the banking system have increased significantly. International financial institutions have hired more people in Hong Kong. The International Monetary Fund issued a report that reaffirmed Hong Kong’s status as an international financial center.
The ironclad facts have already shown that the Hong Kong National Security Law is a law to safeguard national security, social stability in Hong Kong, and peace of Hong Kong citizens!
The US lie about Hong Kong's national security law affecting the business environment of the SAR has long been self-defeating!
The spokesman pointed out that Hong Kong is a society under the rule of law, and that violations of the law must be investigated, and that the law must be followed is the core of the rule of law. No one has the privilege to be above the law.
Hong Kong’s National Security Law strikes a small group of anti-China and Hong Kong rioters who seriously endanger national security, and protects the vast majority of Hong Kong residents who enjoy their rights and freedoms in accordance with the law.
A very small number of people were arrested, prosecuted, and tried by the law enforcement and judicial authorities of the SAR for suspected violations of the Hong Kong National Security Law and the local laws of the SAR. The evidence was sufficient and conclusive, the procedures were proper and reasonable, and the judgments were public and legal.
This should be supported in any country and in any society under the rule of law, and should not be interfered.
The United States has been talking about upholding the rule of law in Hong Kong all day long, but it has pressured and coerced the law enforcement and judicial authorities of the SAR to handle cases in accordance with the law, justified criminals, and put political manipulation above the law.
The US's robber logic of "turning hands for cloud and covering hands for rain" is really infuriating and disdainful!
The spokesperson emphasized that since the return of Hong Kong, the principles of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong", and a high degree of autonomy have been practically implemented, and the development of Hong Kong has achieved world-recognized achievements. We fully believe that with the in-depth implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law and the improvement of the SAR election system, as the country’s 14th Five-Year Plan accelerates and Hong Kong is better integrated into the overall development of the country, Hong Kong will be safer, more democratic and freer , More harmonious. We urge the US to manage its own affairs, proceed from safeguarding its own interests and image, and immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs in any way.
