Hong Kong affairs are China’s internal affairs and allow no external interference.
Non-interference, as a basic norm of international relations, must be observed by all countries.
The central government holds the primary and ultimate
responsibility for national security
in all sub-national administrative regions. This is the basic theory and principle underpinning national sovereignty and a common practice in countries around the globe.
Excessive unlawful foreign meddling in Hong Kong affairs has placed China’s national security in serious jeopardy
. Under such circumstances, establishing a legal system and enforcement mechanisms for safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong SAR has become a pressing priority. We must get it done without the slightest delay.
