Q: The British government issues its latest six-monthly report on Hong Kong yesterday. I wonder if you'd like to respond to it?
A: We deplore and reject British government's wrong practice of making uninvited remarks on Hong Kong by issuing the so-called six-monthly reports.
After the return of Hong Kong, the Chinese government exercises jurisdiction over it in strict accordance with the Constitution and the Basic Law of the Hong Kong SAR. The policy of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy has been earnestly implemented. This is a fact no unbiased people will deny.
China is determined to fully and accurately implement the "one country, two systems" policy, to safeguard sovereignty, national security and development interests, and to uphold lasting prosperity and stability in Hong Kong.
I reiterate that Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs that brook no interference from any country, organization or individual. The UK has no sovereignty, no jurisdiction and no right of supervision over Hong Kong after the handover. The "responsibility" it claims is simply non-existent. Hong Kong is part of China. We urge the British side to come to terms with reality, respect China's sovereignty, stop releasing relevant reports, and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs and interfering in China's internal affairs in any form.
