Il­le­gal re­quests of UK MPs

China Daily (Canada) - - COMMENT - Wen­Wei Pao, Dec 3 Peo­ple’s Daily over­seas edi­tion, Dec 4 Hua Chun­y­ing, spokesper­son for the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs of China, xin­huanet.com, Dec 2 jwcf, via sohu blog

re­sumed sovereignty overHong Kong on July 1, 1997, and what hap­pens in­Hong Kong since then is China’s do­mes­tic af­fairs. It is in­cred­i­ble that UK mem­bers of par­lia­ment are at­tempt­ing to “in­ves­ti­gate” the sit­u­a­tion in­Hong Kong, be­cause that vi­o­lates China’s sovereignty as well as agree­ments reached be­tween two coun­tries. The UK mem­bers of par­lia­ment must know their re­quests are il­le­gal.

re­quest­ing they “in­ves­ti­gate” in­Hong Kong, the UK mem­bers of par­lia­ment are try­ing to im­pose their val­ues upon China and in­ter­fere in China’s do­mes­tic af­fairs. They should be clear that Bri­tain’s past role in­Hong Kong was colo­nial rule, ob­tained through mil­i­tary in­va­sion. Their rule ended in 1997, but it seems cer­tain par­lia­ment mem­bers are lost in the past colo­nial days, un­able to face re­al­ity. We are now in the 21st cen­tury, please give up il­lu­sion.

those work­ing sin­cerely for Sino-Bri­tish friend­ship, China of­fers an open gate; but for those at­tempt­ing to in­ter­vene in China’s in­ter­nal af­fairs, we firmly re­ject them and won’t grant them any ac­cess. Cer­tain Bri­tish mem­bers of par­lia­ments are hurt­ing Sino-Bri­tish ties by rais­ing the re­quest.

“Oc­cupy Cen­tral” emerged, cer­tain UK politi­cians have tried to “guide” the move­ment so as to put heav­ier pres­sure upon the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment. This ex­poses their old think­ing of try­ing to con­tain China, even though the days of the ColdWar are over. They want the move­ment to es­ca­late into a “color revo­lu­tion” against China but their ef­forts will only be in vain.
