Regarding recent remarks by chairman of the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs Eliot Engel that he was "deeply concerned the reports of police brutality in  response to the peaceful protests in Hong Kong", Hua refuted his expression of attitude that he entirely "turned white to black" and "confused right and wrong".

"How can some Americans use the words 'peaceful protests' when seeing violent protesters storm the Legislative Council Complex and besiege the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR (Hong Kong Special Administrative Region - KR), not to mention the organized assault on police by lethal weapons?" Hua asked.

Pointing that some European and American people shield rioters in Hong Kong and turn a blind eye to their violence and illegal acts, she reiterated that the central government firmly supports the HKSAR government in exercising effective governance and the police there in punishing lawless and violent acts in accordance with the law, so as to safeguard long-term stability, development and prosperity of the city.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the HKMAO (Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office - KR) of the State Council of China said, it is China's firm stand that Hong Kong affairs are China's domestic affairs and foreign interference is inadmissible. He condemned the some irresponsible people from Western countries poking into Hong Kong affairs and telling China what to do. Their purpose is to bring disorder to HKSAR and to undermine China's development, he added.
