The spokesperson of the embassy said that Canadian Foreign Minister Jolly made a so-called statement on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to slander Hong Kong's national security law and violated freedom of speech, called on China to undertake the so-called "international obligations", and made irresponsible remarks about the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong. China's interference in China's internal affairs is firmly opposed and strongly condemned by the Chinese side.
The spokesman pointed out that after the return of Hong Kong, Hong Kong talents truly enjoyed a wide range of rights and freedoms.
The implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law has effectively guaranteed various legal rights and freedoms enjoyed by Hong Kong people, including freedom of the press and speech, and has effectively safeguarded national security and the rule of law and justice in Hong Kong society.
Without the protection of the Hong Kong National Security Law, there will be no long-term stability in Hong Kong.
Facts have proved that "one country, two systems" has been repeatedly tested in practice and is in line with the fundamental interests of the country and the nation, as well as the fundamental interests of Hong Kong. system.
At the same time, the policy of "one country, two systems" must be fully and accurately implemented, the unity of the central government's overall governance power and the guarantee of a high degree of autonomy of the special administrative region must be adhered to, and the "patriots ruling Hong Kong" must be implemented.
The spokesman stressed that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong.
The legal basis for the Chinese government to govern the Hong Kong SAR is the Chinese Constitution and the Basic Law of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs, and no external forces can make irresponsible remarks.
The so-called "deep ties" between Canada and Hong Kong cannot be used as a reason for Canada to interfere in Hong Kong affairs.
The Canadian side's smearing of the successful practice of "one country, two systems" is futile, and it is impossible to intervene in Hong Kong affairs. Such erroneous actions cannot shake China's firm determination to fully and accurately implement "one country, two systems" and China's safeguarding of national sovereignty. The strong will of China, security and development interests cannot stop the steady and long-term progress of "one country, two systems" and the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong.
The embassy spokesman said that China once again urges Canada to respect the rule of law, respect China's sovereignty and unity, and stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs in any form, otherwise Canada will only bring its own humiliation, and China will surely hit back.
