Chinese FM Warns Against Foreign Interference Over Hong Kong
Monday, 25 May 2020 14:02 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is warning the West and other players that œno external interference will be tolerated as Beijing considers a new security law inside semi-autonomous Hong Kong.

œExcessive unlawful foreign meddling in Hong Kong affairs has placed China™s national security in serious jeopardy, Wang said at a news conference Sunday.

He said the proposal œdoes not affect the rights and freedoms enjoyed by Hong Kong residents. And it does not affect the legitimate rights and interests of foreign investors in Hong Kong.

He said people are becoming œunnecessarily worried about the new security arrangements.

œPeople should have more confidence, he said, while at the same time making it clear that China has œprinciples and guts. We will push back against any deliberate insult to resolutely defend our national honor and dignity and we will refute all groundless slander with facts.

The new law would ban what Chinese authorities regard as secessionist, subversive, and what they call terrorist activities inside Hong Kong which Beijing says threatens national security.

The Chinese parliament is widely expected to rubber-stamp its approval later this week.
