Commissioner’s Office urges the EU to immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs
2023-08-19 11:11

The spokesperson for the Commissioner’s Office of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR strongly disapproved and firmly rejected EU’s 2022 report on Hong Kong, which pointed a finger at Hong Kong affairs, slandered "one country, two systems", attacked the national security law and the situation of human rights and the rule of law in Hong Kong. We urge the EU to abide by the principles of international law and the basic norms of international relations and immediately stop the gross interference in Hong Kong affairs.

The spokesperson said that since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, the Chinese Government has fully, faithfully and unswervingly implemented the principles of "one country, two systems” and “Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong with a high degree of autonomy”, and the successful implementation of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong is globally recognized. In the more than three years since the implementation of the national security law, the rule of law and business environment in Hong Kong have become better, the society more stable and united, showing stronger vigor and vitality. Hong Kong has ushered in a situation of stability and prosperity, and opened a new chapter in good governance. The lawful rights of freedom of speech, press and association enjoyed by Hong Kong residents are better protected in a safer environment. The EU report, ignoring the basic facts, blaming China's just actions to safeguard national security, slandering the SAR Government's law-based administration, and smearing the fair trial of the SAR courts and the bright future of Hong Kong, has denigrated into a tool of political performance and has no credibility at all.

The spokesperson pointed out that the EU itself faces multiple governance and development difficulties and human rights problems, such as the migrants and refugees issue, racial discrimination, the huge gap between the rich and the poor, and the energy crisis. Without reflecting on themselves, the EU blatantly violated international law and the basic norms of international relations, and wantonly interfered in Hong Kong affairs in a commanding manner. By playing the "Hong Kong card", the EU’s hypocrisy and double standard has been laid bare!

The spokesperson stressed that Hong Kong affairs are China’s internal affairs and brook no interference. Platitudes and fabricated reports of external forces cannot change China's determination to firmly safeguard "one country, two systems" and national security, nor can they stop the historical trend of Hong Kong moving from chaos to stability and prosperity. We urge the EU to put itself in the right position, recognize the trend, stop vilifying the rule of law and human rights situation in Hong Kong, and stop the political manipulation of interfering in Hong Kong affairs!
