Remarks by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang on the 2018 Annual Reports on Hong Kong and Macao Published by the EU

Q: We know from media reports that the EU published its 2018 annual reports on Hong Kong and Macao on May 8 commenting on the two region's affairs. I wonder what is your response to that?

A: There's no denying that the "one country, two systems" policy has been successfully implemented in Hong Kong and Macao since their return to the motherland. The two regions enjoy prosperity and stability, and residents there have been guaranteed by law with an unprecedented level of democratic rights and various freedoms, including freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of association. We deplore and resolutely object the EU reports for the unwarranted comments on the affairs of Hong Kong and Macao and wanton criticisms on the "one country, two systems" practice in the two regions under the pretext of human rights and freedom, which constitute a gross interference in China's internal affairs and the affairs of the SARs. We have repeatedly made clear our opposition to the EU's releasing of reports on Hong Kong and Macao, and we demand it to stop this wrong practice.
