Statement of the Chinese Embassy in the UK: The Chinese Embassy strongly condemns the despicable acts of "Hong Kong independence" rioters who burnt the national flag and assaulted the Embassy building

On the afternoon of October 1st, in blatant, flagrant and abominable acts of vandalizing and insult in front of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, a dozen “Hong Kong independence” rioters set fire to the national flag of China, assaulted the main gate of the Embassy building and put up “Hong Kong independence” slogans on the gate. Their actions amounted to grave desecration of the dignity of the country and the nation, and violation of the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the National Flag and the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, challenge to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China and threat to the security and safety of the premises and staff of the Chinese Embassy!

The Chinese Embassy expresses strong indignation and condemnation against such despicable acts! These acts fully reveal the ugly nature of “Hong Kong independence” elements as violent perpetrators and their true agenda of disrupting China and destabilizing Hong Kong! The action of these rioters is against the will of the Chinese nation and will never succeed! Their acts of secession and treason will be rejected by the history and the Chinese people!

The Chinese Embassy in the UK has lodged solemn representation to the UK police and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, urging the UK side to make swift investigation and bring the perpetrators to justice at an early date. The Chinese Embassy in the UK also urges the UK side to take concrete measures to fulfill its responsibilities and obligations under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations as the receiving state, safeguard the inviolability of diplomatic and consular missions, and ensure the security, safety and dignity of the premises and staff of the Chinese Embassy and Consulates-General in the UK.
