China capable of ensuring prosperity and stability in HK

Date: 15/06/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

The anti-China moves of the West overstepped the limits with the recent Third Session of the 13th National People’s Congress of China as a momentum.

The meeting adopted a decision on establishing and perfecting legal and enforcement systems of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for ensuring national security.

Actually, even before the decision was made, the West had mounted an anti-China offensive, clamouring that China was going to cancel the full autonomy of Hong Kong and put an end to the freedom of Hong Kong society.

Since the Chinese government adopted the decision, they raised criticism that the country violated its international duty and turned the commitment of “one country, two systems” into that of “one country, one system”. The US and the UK attempted to place the Hong Kong issue on the agenda of the UN Security Council, while conspiring with Australia and Canada to issue a joint statement of foreign ministers of four countries against China.

China’s recent enactment of the Hong Kong-related national security law is attributable to the nonobservance of Article 23 of the Hong Kong SAR basic law.

The article stipulates that the Hong Kong government should restrain any acts and actions that pose threat to national security “by enacting a law by itself”.

However, the national security law has not yet been adopted in Hong Kong though it has been 23 years since it reverted to China in 1997. It was because some extremist opposition forces incited citizens to obstruct the enactment of the law and, moreover, the anti-Chinese forces in the West patronized them and blatantly interfered in the Hong Kong issue.

Such moves led to serious consequences in Hong Kong.

In 2003, the largest ever demonstration since its reversion to China was staged in Hong Kong against the enactment of the national security law and last year organized acts of violence such as vandalism, robbery, arson and insulting of the national flag and separationist moves were conducted continuously against the amendment of the bylaw on extradition, startling the whole world.

China could not neglect the grave situation since it presented a substantial threat to national security.

The recent enactment of the special law belongs to the internal affairs of China at which no one has the right to point an accusing finger.

Would the countries that are hell-bent on denouncing China still clamour for “freedom” even when something that directly harms their national security such as national partition, subversion, organized terrorism and interference from overseas is rampant in themselves?

The measures of China which is determined to completely eliminate the interference from outside and establish a firm national security system in Hong Kong sounded a warning to the interference of the separationists in the issue.
