New foreign ministers of Britain, America, Australia and Canada issue Hong Kong related statement

On August 11, according to the website of the Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom, the British Foreign Secretary, together with the new foreign ministers of the United States, Australia and Canada, issued the so-called “joint statement”, gossiping about Hong Kong’s national security law and the Hong Kong Legislative Council election, and once again grossly interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs. China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to this and calls on Britain and other countries not to make mistakes again and again. < / P > < p > there is a question: on August 9, the foreign secretary of the United Kingdom and the new foreign ministers of the United States, Australia and Canada issued a joint statement expressing concern about the implementation of the national security law, the postponement of the Legislative Council election and the disqualification of the candidates, saying that this has eroded the basic rights and freedoms of the people of Hong Kong and undermined the democratic process in Hong Kong, and calling on the Hong Kong government to hold elections as soon as possible and restore the candidates’ participation in the election The grid. What’s the comment of the Chinese Embassy? A spokesman for the embassy said that the British Foreign Secretary, together with the new foreign ministers of the United States, Australia and Canada, issued the so-called “joint statement”, gossiping about Hong Kong’s national security law and Hong Kong’s Legislative Council election, and once again grossly interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs. China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to this. < / P > < p > the national security law of Hong Kong has made up for the legal loopholes that have existed for a long time in Hong Kong. The implementation of the law is conducive to the protection of “one country, two systems” and the long-term stability of Hong Kong. It is also conducive to the protection of the rights and freedom of the people of Hong Kong, and has been widely supported by the people of Hong Kong and the international community. In the face of the severe epidemic situation, the Hong Kong SAR government has decided to postpone the election of the seventh Legislative Council. This is a proper move to protect the safety and health of the people in Hong Kong, a necessary move to ensure the security, fairness and fairness of the Legislative Council election, and also in line with the current common move adopted by many countries and regions. In March this year, the United Kingdom announced that it would postpone the local elections originally scheduled for May 7 due to the epidemic situation. Now, it has no reason to accuse the Hong Kong SAR Government of delaying the Legislative Council election. This is a naked “double standard”. At the same time, in accordance with the basic law, the Hong Kong National Security Law and the Hong Kong election law, the Returning Officer of Hong Kong made the decision that the nomination of the relevant personnel for the election to the Legislative Council was invalid, which was legal and compliant. Just as in Britain, anyone who refuses to be loyal to the queen will not be able to be a member of Parliament. < / P > < p > it should also be pointed out that the core of the Sino British Joint Declaration is China’s resumption of the exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong. After the reunification of Hong Kong, the terms of the joint declaration concerning the British side have been fulfilled. China will never accept any foreign excuse for interfering in China’s internal affairs under the joint declaration. < / P > < p > China once again urges the UK and other countries to abide by the basic norms of international law and international relations of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs in any way, and do not make mistakes again and again, otherwise they will suffer their own consequences.
