Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
2019/11/28

The US side has signed into law the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. This is a severe interference in Hong Kong affairs, which are China's internal affairs. It is also in serious violation of international law and basic norms governing international relations. The Chinese government and the people firmly oppose such stark hegemonic acts.

Since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, success of the "one country, two systems" principle has been universally recognized. Hong Kong residents enjoy unprecedented democratic rights in accordance with law. The US has been disregarding facts and distorting truth. It openly backed violent criminals who rampantly smashed facilities, set fire, assaulted innocent civilians, trampled on the rule of law, and jeopardized social order. The egregious and malicious nature of its intentions is fully revealed. Its very aim is to undermine Hong Kong's stability and prosperity, sabotage the practice of "one country, two systems", and disrupt the Chinese nation's endeavor to realize the great renewal.

We remind the US that Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong affairs are China's internal affairs where no foreign government or force shall interfere. This Act will only further expose the malicious and hegemonic nature of US intentions to the Chinese people, including our Hong Kong compatriots. And the Chinese people will only stand in greater solidarity. The US attempts are bound to fail.

The Chinese government is determined in opposing foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs. We are determined in implementing the "one country, two systems" principle and safeguarding national sovereignty, security and development interests. We urge the US to not continue going down the wrong path, or China will take countermeasures, and the US must bear all consequences.
