Chinanews.com, August 8 According to the website of the Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong, the Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong expressed strong condemnation and resolute opposition to the British government's issuance of the updated 3 "Overseas Business Risk Guide: Hong Kong", stigmatizing the Hong Kong National Security Law and the new electoral system, unreasonably slandering Hong Kong's democracy, freedom and human rights, wantonly smearing the successful practice of "one country, two systems", and grossly interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs.
The spokesman said that since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, the Chinese government has always comprehensively, accurately and unswervingly implemented the principles of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy. Under the protection of the Hong Kong National Security Law and the new electoral system, Hong Kong society has rapidly stabilized, the efficiency of government governance has improved, the freedoms of speech, press and association enjoyed by Hong Kong residents in accordance with the law have been better protected in a safer environment, the business environment has become healthier and more stable, and investors from all over the world have more confidence. In Hong Kong now, the situation of "governance" is constantly stabilizing, the momentum of "prosperity" is constantly accumulating, and the prospects are more brilliant. The relevant British report confuses right and wrong, reverses black and white, wears a "gray-black filter" to look at Hong Kong's bright and sunny days, and holds stubborn prejudice to make irresponsible remarks on Hong Kong affairs.
The spokesman pointed out that the legal basis for the Chinese government's governance of Hong Kong is the Chinese Constitution and the Basic Law of Hong Kong, and is by no means the Sino-British Joint Declaration. The core essence of the Sino-British Joint Declaration is that there are 8 articles and 3 annexes between China and the UK on China's return of Hong Kong and the relevant transitional arrangements, none of which gives the UK any responsibility for Hong Kong after its return. The British side often talks about Hong Kong affairs and distorts history and jurisprudence, which is pure nonsense!
The speaker stressed that those who are wrong must be inhuman. The National Security Bill recently passed by the British side in Parliament covers a wide range of areas and enforces the law with strictness that no one can match. Its own national security barrier is airtight, but it pours dirty water on China's reasonable and lawful measures to safeguard national security; His own democracy is terminally ill and chaotic, but he is obsessed with pointing fingers at the situation of democracy and human rights in Hong Kong. Behind the naked double standard are deep-rooted ideological prejudices, dark and outdated colonialist mentality and the strategic myth of "using Hong Kong to contain China".
The spokesman said that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong, and Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs. No external intervention can shake China's firm determination to fully and accurately implement "one country, two systems", China's strong will to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, and Hong Kong's historical trend of chaos and governance, rule and prosperity! We warn the British side to clearly recognize the reality, follow the general trend, stop indulging in the old colonial dream, immediately stop the wrong practice of humiliating itself and perverse behavior, and immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs in any form!
