China refutes US politicians remarks on Hong Kong

Added On August 15, 2019

According to reports, U.S. House Speaker Pelosi, Senator McConnell, Senator Rubio and Congressman Yoho on Monday tweeted that Hong Kong police repressed demonstrators with violence and that the Chinese central government eroded democracy and freedom in Hong Kong.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said that the remarks are whitewashing violent crimes as a struggle for human rights and freedom, and deliberately misinterpreting the work of Hong Kong police as violent repression when the police were only enforcing the law, fighting crimes and upholding social order.
Hua said their remarks even incited the Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with the SAR government and China's central government.
The spokesperson said the U.S. side had repeatedly denied its involvement in the on-going violent incidents in Hong Kong. However, these remarks have provided the world with new and powerful evidence on the country's involvement.
She said that Hong Kong affairs are entirely China's internal affairs, and those U.S. politicians are neither entitled nor qualified to comment on them.
