Geng Shuang responded by saying that we are strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to the British governments regular publication of the so-called half year report on Hong Kong issues and its wrong way of gossiping about Hong Kong affairs. I would like to point out that since Hong Kongs return to the motherland, the Chinese government has strictly followed the Constitution and the basic law to govern the Hong Kong SAR. The principles of one country, two systems, Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong and a high degree of autonomy have been effectively implemented. This is an objective fact that no one without prejudice can deny. The Chinese government is unswervingly determined to implement the principle of one country, two systems in an all-round way, safeguard national sovereignty and the interests of security and development, and safeguard Hong Kongs long-term prosperity and stability. I would like to reiterate once again that Hong Kong affairs are purely Chinas internal affairs and that no foreign government, organization or individual has the right to intervene. The British side has no sovereignty, governance or supervision over Hong Kong, and there is no so-called responsibility. Hong Kong is Chinas Hong Kong. We ask the British side to face up to the reality, respect Chinas sovereignty, stop publishing relevant reports, stop interfering in Hong Kongs affairs in any way, and interfere in Chinas internal affairs.
