China's departments condemn Trump signing HK act into law
The Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of China's State Council on Thursday strongly condemned the signing of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 into law by the United States.
Facts have proven that the U.S. is the biggest black hand in messing up Hong Kong, said a statement released by the department.
The future and destiny of Hong Kong are always in the hands of the Chinese people, the statement said.
The liaison office of the Chinese central government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) echoed in a statement expressing the utmost indignation and condemnation against the act being signed into law.
China will continue to resolutely implement the principle of "One Country, Two Systems" and firmly support the chief executive in leading the HKSAR government, and firmly support the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing the law, the statement stressed.
The Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR echoed on Thursday, saying that the act confounds right with wrong and is an epitome of gangster logic.
"Its aim is to condone violent crime, destruct Hong Kong and the 'One Country, Two Systems,' and prevent Chinese people from realizing the great rejuvenation of the nation," the office said.
Such an attempt is nothing but a pipe dream, the office added, stressing that Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots, will never accept it, nor will the international community.
