China News Service, Hong Kong, December 10th. In response to the alleged "democracy summit" being held in the United States by suspects who fled Hong Kong in fear of crimes, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government spokesperson responded on the 10th and pointed out that the United States held the so-called "democracy summit". "He also invited Luo Guancong to speak. His intention to discredit China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is clear.
The spokesperson said that the US held the so-called "democracy summit" to undermine the reality of democracy in the name of democracy, imposing its own standards on other countries arbitrarily, creating world divisions, and being generally opposed by the international community, which is outrageous.
In this regard, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated its position many times.
The spokesperson pointed out that the so-called "democracy summit" invited Luo Guancong to speak, which highlights its absurdity and lack of credibility.
Luo Guancong was not "persecuted" as he claimed, but a fugitive who blatantly abandoned bail and absconded after being suspected of committing criminal offences in Hong Kong. He had no integrity at all. Luo Guancong also published many times inciting secession and subversion of state power. The remarks are suspected of violating the Hong Kong National Security Law.
The spokesperson said that, as expected, Luo Guancong’s speech completely ignored the facts, turned black and white, ignored the central government’s full governance over the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, wantonly slandered the Hong Kong National Security Law enacted by the central government and promulgated and implemented it in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and shamelessly followed some parts of it. The script used by Western politicians to make unfounded accusations against China must be severely condemned.
The spokesperson went on to point out that the fact is that, for as long as one year before the promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law on June 30, 2020, anti-China chaos Hong Kong elements including Luo Guancong colluded with foreign and foreign forces to intervene in China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. They even begged foreign governments or parliaments to impose sanctions on the central government and Hong Kong, completely disregarding the interests of the country and Hong Kong people; under their preaching and incitement, thugs wantonly destroying social peace in Hong Kong, leaving Hong Kong society traumatized.
After the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong society has restored stability, and citizens can once again enjoy their rights and freedoms in accordance with the law.
Hong Kong's various advantages, especially the rule of law and judicial independence, remain as solid as a rock, and the business environment has become more ideal.
These are iron-clad facts and should not be slandered.
The spokesman said that there are many ways to achieve democracy, and there is no universal standard. Each place must decide its democratic process according to its specific situation or political development stage.
Conversely, a regime that does not put the well-being of the people in its governance philosophy can hardly meet the standard of "democracy is to serve the people."
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is an inseparable part of the People's Republic of China. It implements the principles of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy. The rights and freedoms of Hong Kong residents are protected by the Hong Kong Basic Law. The Hong Kong National Security Law also clearly respects and protects human rights and does not allow anyone Big talk.
With the strong support of the central government, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has changed from chaos to governance and is moving towards a better development. Any malicious slander or discredit will be self-defeating.
The spokesman emphasized that the political system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is the central authority, and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government firmly opposes foreign interference for any reason and in any way.
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will severely punish lawbreakers in accordance with the law, and will not allow fugitives to go unpunished.
