Commissioner’s Office urges the European Parliament to stop political tricks of interfering into Hong Kong affairs
2022-07-08 13:35

The spokesperson of the Commissioner’s Office of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR strongly disapproved and firmly rejected the Hong Kong-related resolution adopted in the European Parliament, which slandered Hong Kong police’s legitimate law enforcement actions to personnel of the 612 Fund, waded into Hong Kong’s rule of law, and clamored for sanctions against SAR government officials. The resolution seriously violated the principles of international law and the basic norms of international relations, and interfered in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs. It is doomed to be futile and cannot stop the historical trend of Hong Kong becoming more prosperous.

The spokesperson said that Hong Kong is a society governed by the rule of law where laws must be observed and lawbreakers held accountable. The relevant personnel of the 612 Fund are suspected of colluding with foreign countries or overseas forces to endanger national security. The law enforcement action taken by the SAR police to them is an action of justice to safeguard national security and the rule of law in Hong Kong. The law-based action is completely legitimate, and brooks no external intervention. Trying to whitewash the suspects, the resolution of the European Parliament once again revealed some European politicians’ dark mentality of not wanting to see a stable and well-governed Hong Kong and fully exposed their same sinister stance with anti-China, destabilizing forces in Hong Kong.

The spokesperson pointed out that since the implementation of the National Security Law, Hong Kong has embarked on a new journey and the principle of “one country, two systems” has shown new vitality in a more secure, stable and law-based environment. Hong Kong is in a new stage of moving from chaos to stability and then to greater prosperity. However, the European Parliament turned a blind eye to the mainstream public opinion of Hong Kong people seeking stability and development, kept mute on its own problems of refugee, racial discrimination and the chasm between the rich and the poor. It is sheer double-standard and hypocrisy to point a finger at Hong Kong, smear the central government’s policies towards Hong Kong and interfere with the law-based administration of the SAR government under the guise of “rights” and “freedom”.

The spokesperson stressed that the Chinese government is fully determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests, to fully and accurately implement the principle of “one country, two systems”, and to oppose external interference in Hong Kong affairs. No pressure and sanctions can hinder Hong Kong from rectifying chaos, block the bright future of “one country, two systems” or stop the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The resolution of the European Parliament is just a piece of waste paper, and if the European side “wields the sanction stick”, it will only shoot itself in the foot, and will be opposed by all the 1.4 billion Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots.
