China's position on the current "Occupy Central" movement in Hong Kong
2014/09/30

【Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Regular Press Conference on September 29, 2014】

Q: Can you comment on what role certain western countries play in stirring up the "Occupy Central" protest in Hong Kong? What's your comment on the US Consulate General in Hong Kong's remarks regarding the protest?

A: Since the morning of September 28, some people in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) illegally rallied and carried out the protest of "Occupy Central". The Spokesperson of the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council has stated our principle and position, which is that the central government firmly opposes all kinds of illegal acts in Hong Kong that undermine the rule of law and sabotage social security and fully believes and strongly supports the lawful handling of the case by the Hong Kong SAR government.

We have noticed remarks made by certain countries. I'd like to reiterate that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong, which is a special administrative region of China. Hong Kong affairs fully fall within China's domestic affairs. We hope that relevant countries can be prudent in their words and deeds, refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of Hong Kong in any way, stay away from supporting the illegal acts such as "Occupy Central", and do not send out wrong signals.

The central government firmly opposes all illegal acts that undermine the rule of law and sabotage social stability, fully believes and strongly supports Hong Kong SAR government's handling of the case in accordance with law so as to safeguard social stability of Hong Kong..
