Spokesperson of the Chinese Mission to the EU Speaks on a Question Concerning the EEAS Comments on the Situation in Hong Kong

Q: It is reported that on November 12, Spokesperson of European Union External Action Service made comments on the situation in Hong Kong, saying that it is crucial that all sides exercise restraint and that a credible and swift solution is imperative, and calling for a comprehensive inquiry into the violence, use of force and the root causes of the protests. What’s your comment?

A: Recently, the incessant massive violent offenses have put Hong Kong in a precarious situation. The Chinese Central Government firmly supports the HKSAR Government, police and judicial authorities in taking vigorous measures to bring criminal offenders to justice, protect Hong Kong residents' life and property, and restore tranquility and stability in the SAR.

We would like to reiterate that Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs where no foreign government, organization or individual shall interfere. We urge the EU side to earnestly abide by international law and basic norms governing international relations, immediately stop making irresponsible remarks, and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs and China's other domestic affairs.
