A representative of Cuba read out the statement during the 44th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council held in Geneva on Tuesday. The statement said Non-interference in internal affairs of sovereign states is an essential principle enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and a basic norm of international relations. "In this context, we welcome the adoption of the decision by China's legislature to establish and improve a legal framework and enforcement mechanisms for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) for the purpose of safeguarding national security, as well as China's reaffirmation of adherence to 'one country, two systems' guideline." It continued that "We are convinced that this move is conducive to ensure "one country, two systems" is steady and enduring, and that Hong Kong enjoys long term prosperity and stability. The legitimate rights and freedoms of Hong Kong residents can also be better exercised in a safe environment." The statement also reiterated that Hong Kong is an inseparable part of China, and Hong Kong affairs are China's internal affairs that brook no interference by foreign forces. It urges relevant sides to stop interfering in China's internal affairs by using Hong Kong related issues.
