Lin said that Hong Kongs human rights and freedoms are guaranteed by the basic law, and Hong Kong enjoys freedom of interview, assembly, demonstration and other aspects of high freedom. She asked Hong Kong people which aspect of freedom was damaged? It is regrettable for foreign countries to intervene in Hong Kongs affairs through their own legislation.
As for the Chinese governments response to the USs insistence on signing the so-called Hong Kong Bill of human rights and democracy into law announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday, Lin said that relevant matters are foreign affairs, and the SAR government will cooperate and follow up according to the requirements of the central government. She also said that Hong Kong enterprises do not know what action the US government will take on the bill in the future, which will have an impact on the confidence of enterprises and create an unstable environment. However, there are more than 1300 enterprises in the us that have set up regional offices in Hong Kong. The bill also hurts American enterprises, and major chambers of Commerce have strongly opposed the bill.
In addition, Lin also mentioned that she had expected the peace of the District Council to last for about ten days before and after the election. In order to protect Hong Kongs economy and peoples livelihood, the society needs a non violent environment. But its a pity that on Saturday and Sunday, there were road jams, arson and gas bombs in Kowloon district. The police were very restrained and still had to use tear gas. She said she hoped there would be ways to stop violence and give the economy a chance to recover, but now it has been drenched in cold water and hoped that violence would stop as soon as possible.
China suspended the approval of the application for sanctions against non-governmental organizations by US ships
Hua Chunying announced that recently, despite Chinas resolute opposition, the US side insisted on signing the so-called Hong Kong Bill of human rights and democracy into law, which seriously violated international law and basic norms of international relations, and seriously interfered in Chinas internal affairs. China has expressed its firm attitude on this. In response to the unreasonable actions of the US side, the Chinese government decided to suspend the examination and approval of the application of US warships and aircrafts to Hong Kong for a rest from now on. At the same time, it imposed sanctions on non-governmental organizations such as National Democracy Foundation of the United States, democratic Association for international affairs of the United States, Institute of international republics of the United States, Human Rights Watch, Freedom House and other non-governmental organizations that had behaved badly in the storm of Hong Kong amendment.
