On July 9, 2019, it was reported that Vice President Burns of the United States and Secretary of State Pompeo met with Hong Kong businessman Li Zhiying separately to discuss the development of the amendment of the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance and Hong Kongs autonomous status under one country, two systems. In response, a spokesman for the Foreign Affairs Office solemnly expressed his firm opposition to outside interference in Hong Kongs affairs and would never sit idly by while national sovereignty and security and Hong Kongs prosperity and stability were undermined. Internal and external forces collude with each other, and the disaster to Hong Kong and the people is doomed to a bad end.
The spokesman said that the United States knows who Li Zhiying is, what position she has always held and what role she plays in Hong Kong society. During the sensitive period of the current situation in Hong Kong, senior US government officials lined up to meet such a person with ulterior motives and sent a serious wrong signal. We express our strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to this.
The spokesman stressed that the United States has repeatedly interfered in Hong Kongs affairs and Chinas internal affairs, disregarding the basic norms of international law and international relations, and interfered with the administration of the SAR Government in accordance with the law. The Office has made strict representations to the US Consulate-General in Hong Kong in this regard, demanding that the United States immediately stop its erroneous words and deeds and not go further and further along the wrong road.
The spokesman pointed out that Hong Kongs individuals, regardless of national dignity and Hong Kongs interests, were willing to serve as a political tool for foreign forces to fight against China and chaos in Hong Kong, wagging their tails and begging for pity and inducing wolves into their homes. Such ugly faces and despicable acts were disgraced by all Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots. These ethnic villains and Hong Kong criminals will always be nailed to the pillar of humiliation in history.
