Chinese Foreign Ministry refutes accusations by foreign governments
Beijing, Jul 2 (Prensa Latina) The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Thursday published a statement that refutes the accusations by western governments on the situation in Hong Kong, Tibet and Xinjiang, as well as the evolution of Covid-19.
The communiqué rejected with facts the false claims, which were described as full of ignorance and biases against China.
Regarding the recently approved National Security Law for Hong Kong, the Foreign Ministry explained that it is a necessary step to plug loopholes in the HKSAR national security legislation and a fundamental solution to ensure the steady and successful implementation of the 'One Country, Two Systems'.
According to the statement, the special administrative region of Hong Kong will not return to peace until 'the separatists, gangsters, rioters and outlaws are brought to justice' and the legislation will not affect the rights and freedom of the people.
It made it clear that the United Kingdom has no obligations or rights over the territory, and any decisions are taken on the basis of the Constitution and the Basic law, as the local constitutional document is called.
Regarding criticisms that Beijing covered up the Covid-19 outbreak, the Foreign Ministry pointed out that China 'provided timely information to the world in an open, transparent and responsible manner'.
It also cited research works that show that China had nothing to do with most cases reported in Canada, France, Russia, Australia, Singapore and Japan.
Among other matters, the Foreign Ministry presented the results of the program implemented in the autonomous Uygur region of Xinjiang against terrorism, extremism and separatism, assuring that local residents live a normal life.
