Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on the Passage of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in the US House of Representatives
2019/10/16

Q: According to media reports, a plenary session of the US House of Representatives discussed and passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act on October 15 local time. I wonder if you have a comment on that?

A: We express strong indignation on and firm opposition to the US House of Representative's passage of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act.

The current situation in Hong Kong has nothing to do with human rights or democracy. The real issue is to promptly end violence, restore order and safeguard the rule of law. The US House of Representatives is disregarding and distorting facts by referring to serious criminal offenses such as arson, smashing of shops and violence against police officers as an issue of human rights and democracy. That is a stark double standard. It fully exposes the shocking hypocrisy of some in the US on human rights and democracy and their malicious intention to undermine Hong Kong's prosperity and stability to contain China's development. The US has important interests in Hong Kong. If the relevant act were to become law, it would not only harm China's interests and China-US relations, but would also seriously damage US interests. China will definitely take strong countermeasures in response to the wrong decisions by the US side to defend its sovereignty, security and development interests.

I reiterate: Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs that brook no foreign interference. We urge the US side to come to a clear assessment of the situation, immediately stop pushing the Hong Kong-related act and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs before falling off the edge of the cliff.
