After the annual meeting of the National People’s Congress of China announced that the establishment and improvement of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s legal system and enforcement mechanism for maintaining national security will be included in the agenda of the meeting, a group of Western politicians represented by US Secretary of State Pompeo spoke loudly out, defaming the Chinese government’s new proposed rules to make Hong Kong’s “high degree of autonomy” cease to exist, and threating to impose so-called sanctions on China.
The nonsense of Pompeo and others is simply a dream! Hong Kong is China’s Hong Kong, and national security legislation is the norm in the world. The United States, which had suffered a catastrophic loss on September 11, has already suffered from national security issues, and has continued to formulate a strict and somewhat illogical legal system. Did Pompeo forget all this and let the world relax to contain and against terrorism?
For any country, maintaining national security involves core interests and there is little room for bargaining. Take the United States, for example, has “The National Security Law”, “the Spy Law”, “the Diplomatic Mission Law” and other laws that safeguard national security interests. The US government even puts the so-called “national security” on its lips. Why is the US so crazy as to stop China from enacting similar legislation to safeguard national security?
The performances of American politicians can only show that they are not really thinking about Hong Kong. The US is hoping that Hong Kong will be as chaotic as possible, trying to take advantage of the situation by diverting people’s attention from the failure of its own problems, and then instigate chaos in Hong Kong and contain China’s development. This is vicious, how can a kind Chinese be fooled?
Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. China has decided to establish and improve Hong Kong’s legal system and enforcement mechanism for safeguarding national security at the national level. After Hong Kong returned to the motherland, the Central Government authorized the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to legislate to safeguard national security in accordance with Article 23 of the Hong Kong Basic Law. However, in the past 23 years, the relevant legislative procedures of the SAR have not been completed, which has caused Hong Kong to become a rare “undefended” area in the field of national security.
In particular, since the storm of Hong Kong ’s amendments last year, some anti-China chaotic Hong Kong elements and extreme opposition advocated “Hong Kong independence”, openly insulted and defaced the national flag and the national emblem , instigated the siege of central government agencies in Hong Kong , attacked innocent citizens, and violently opposed the police law enforcement. Paralyzing the governance of the government and the operation of the Legislative Council, the emergence of terrorist signs repeatedly … All kinds of heinous acts seriously threaten the public security and national sovereignty security of Hong Kong, and any country ruled by law will never condone tolerance.
Nowadays, the National People’s Congress of China establishes and improves the legal system and enforcement mechanism of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to safeguard national security from the national level– that is to fill in the “loophole” of safeguarding national security, build the foundation of the “one country, two systems” system, and promote the long-term stability of Hong Kong. It is widely recognized and supported by the people of Hong Kong.
These days, a significant number of Hong Kong citizens have actively participated in the “Support for National Security Legislation” signature activity initiated by various groups. Cai Guanshen, member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and the Chairman of the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, who is participating in the “two sessions” in Beijing, pointed out that national security legislation against serious crimes such as subversion of the state will not affect Hong Kong capital or even the normal business operations of any foreign capital in Hong Kong, nor will it affect Hong Kong’s human rights and freedom of speech of citizens. Fan Xu Litai, the first Hong Kong Legislative Council Chairman, also stated in an exclusive interview with the Central Radio and Television Station on the 25th that passing the relevant decision to authorize the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress to formulate relevant laws did not affect Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy at all. She also asked if these violent and terrorist activities are allowed to continue, Hong Kong will be over. What is the meaning of “Hong Kong’s special status” at that time to us?
As many in Hong Kong have pointed out, this decision of the National People’s Congress is aimed at very few acts that seriously endanger national security. After the decision is passed, the legislative process will be initiated, which will enable Hong Kong to have a more complete legal system, a more stable social order, a better rule of law and a business environment, which will help companies from all over the world develop better in Hong Kong
Some American politicians who are decent in appearance on the prevention and control of the epidemic and the international stage, what they have done has even broken through the basic principles of being human. In fact, the worst and darkest black hand in the storm of legislative amendments of Hong Kong that continues to this day is precisely these American and Western politicians.
Taking the United States as an example, it has always used Hong Kong as a key base for political penetration in the Asia-Pacific region. A large number of intelligence personnel are active here. According to Hong Kong media, the National Democracy Foundation, established under the legislation of the US Congress, has funded more than $ 3.95 million from the opposition in Hong Kong from 1995 to early 2015. Last May, when some anti-chaotic Hong Kong elements went to the United States to shake their tails and beg for mercy, they gave a highly inflammatory speech at the National Democratic Foundation of the United States. The deputy director of the foundation’s Asia project also asked with “concern”: “What can we do for you? How can we help you?” In August last year, there was a US diplomat who participated in instigating the “Color Revolution” black case of other countries Officials, who were exposed to meet with representatives of the extreme opposition in Hong Kong, which became the solid evidence that the United States supported the anti-China chaos in Hong Kong.
Obviously, one of the main reasons why some American politicians reacted violently to Hong Kong-related national security legislation is fundamentally because they feared that after effectively plugging national security loopholes in Hong Kong, they would never have the opportunity to intervene in Hong Kong affairs indiscriminately. They tried to use “Hong Kong” to contain China will be completely disillusioned.
The Chinese government’s determination to safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests is unswerving, its determination to implement the policy of “one country, two systems,” and its determination to oppose any external forces interference in Hong Kong affairs is unswerving. The inclusion of Hong Kong-related national security legislation on the agenda by the National People’s Congress of China shows that: China will never allow anti-China chaotic Hong Kong elements and external anti-China forces to collude with each other to undermine Hong Kong’s social order and interfere in China’s internal affairs; and Hong Kong will never become the U.S. government to maintain world hegemony Victim. Remind the American “Gibbons” to wake up from their dreams and don’t misjudge the situation. (International review commentator)
