“Respecting science and putting life first is the general consensus of the international community”

“The 21st session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress of China recently voted and passed a decision on the continued performance of the duties of the sixth Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which is conducive to maintaining the constitutional and legal order of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and ensuring the normal Administration of the government and the normal operation of the society of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.” Recently, a visiting professor of East Japan International University, Yoshihiro Nishihara, said in an interview with this newspaper that Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and the Legislative Council election is a local election in China. It is purely an internal affair of Hong Kong, and no foreign government, organization or individual has the right or reason to intervene. < / P > < p > “there is no lack of precedent in the world for delaying elections due to disasters such as epidemic situation. The novel coronavirus pneumonia election in Hongkong is entirely based on the current severe situation of the new crown pneumonia epidemic. It reflects the importance of the safety and health of the majority of Hongkong citizens. This move is in line with international practice. ” Xiyuansi Yihuang pointed out that during the global fight against the epidemic, dozens of countries or regions have postponed national or local elections due to the epidemic. “It is a common consensus of the international community to respect science and put life first.” < p > < p > in the view of nishiyuansi, the postponement of the Legislative Council election in Hong Kong is not only conducive to the protection of the life safety and health of Hong Kong people, but also conducive to the security, fairness and justice of the Legislative Council election. Under the current situation, it is urgent to strictly control the epidemic situation. The postponement of the election will help the SAR government and the whole society to devote their major energy to the most urgent work of epidemic prevention and control. < / P > < p > xiyuansi is 78 years old. Before the normalization of diplomatic relations between China and Japan, his father, Koichi xiyuansi, was active in promoting the cause of friendly exchanges between the two countries and was known as the “non-governmental ambassador” of Japan to China. In the 1950s and 1960s, Xiyuan Temple lived in China with its family for 10 years. He has always been committed to the cause of Japan China friendship. A few days ago, nishiyuansi wrote an article on Japan and China in the Journal of the Japan China Friendship Association to objectively and accurately introduce the relevant situation of Hong Kong, China to the Japanese people. < / P > < p > xiyuansi Yihuang wrote in his article that “one country, two systems” is a complete concept, “one country” is the premise and foundation for the implementation of “two systems”, and “two systems” are subordinate to and derived from “one country” and unified within “one country”. Hong Kong is a part of China, and the central government has overall governance over the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The high degree of autonomy enjoyed by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is neither complete autonomy nor decentralization, but the power of local affairs management granted by the central government. Hong Kong affairs are purely China’s internal affairs, and other countries should not dictate. < / P > < p > “the promulgation and implementation of the Hong Kong national security law will help to fill the loopholes in national security, take effective measures to stop violence and chaos, and restore a good legal and business environment in Hong Kong.” He pointed out that the illegal activities of Hong Kong rioters have caused great harm to the normal life of Hong Kong people, which is not allowed in any country ruled by law.
