No one can infringe upon independent right of a sovereign state

The 3rd Session of the 13th Chinese National People's Congress adopted a decision on establishing and perfecting a legal system and executive mechanism to defend the security of the state in Hong Kong.

This is a lawful exercise of the independent right of a sovereign state.

The government organs of China are taking various measures for protecting the people's lives and property in Hong Kong and defending the security of the country. No one has the right to slander and interfere in it.

Any attempt to separate Hong Kong from the territory of China under the signboard of "independence" is never acceptable for China.

Hong Kong is an inseparable part of the Chinese territory.

China's exercise of its sovereignty over Hong Kong doesn't cause any problem in view of the UN Charter.

If slandering and questioning the rightful exercise of sovereignty is continuously allowed as now, the international justice will disappear in the world.

Putting pressure upon China over the issue of its exercise of sovereignty and openly attempting to divide China is a matter of great concern even from the viewpoint of the third person.

The Asia-Pacific region is now turning into the hottest spot in the world. It is because sovereign states are checked from exercising their independent rights and are placed under political and military pressure.

China maintains the firm stand to establish and complete the legal system and execution mechanism in Hong Kong special administrative region for defending the security of the country and not to allow any acts of challenging the limit of "one country and two systems" and splitting the country.

Residents in Hong Kong are hailing the institution of the state security law in Hong Kong, appreciating it as the one for keeping the principle of "one country and two systems" and ensuring the legitimate rights and interests of Hong Kong citizens.

The right of decision on Hong Kong Issue lies with China.

All measures taken by China to safeguard the country's sovereignty, security, development and interests are very justifiable.
