China on Wednesday expressed strong indignation and firm opposition to the U.S. House of Representatives' passing of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said in a press statement.
The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Wednesday expressed regret over the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of acts and resolution concerning Hong Kong, reiterating that foreign legislatures should not interfere in any form in the internal affairs of the HKSAR.
Some U.S. politicians have kept bent on passing Hong Kong-related bills including the so-called "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019", ignoring the facts and confounding right with wrong. By doing so, they have openly endorsed anti-China troublemakers in Hong Kong, tested the red line of the "one country, two systems" principle, grossly interfered with Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs as a whole, and trampled upon international law and basic norms governing international relations, the Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement.
A spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council on Wednesday made serious protest to and strongly condemned the passing of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 by the U.S. House of Representatives.
