2020/05/25

Q: What's the consideration for the inclusion in the agenda of the third plenary session of the 13th NPC of the draft decision on establishing and improving a legal framework and enforcement mechanism for safeguarding national security in Hong Kong SAR?

A: National security is a basic precondition for the existence and development of a nation and it concerns the nation's core interests. In accordance with the Constitution and the Basic Law of the HKSAR, the NPC's establishing and improving a legal framework and enforcement mechanism for safeguarding national security in the HKSAR is an essential measure to uphold national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity and consolidate the foundation of the "one country, two systems" principle. It is a sure choice to safeguard long-term peace and stability in Hong Kong and prevent and curb foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs. It is legitimate, legal and imperative.

"One country, two systems" is China's basic state policy, and the Chinese government is firmly committed to its implementation. Safeguarding national security is the core of "one country, two systems" and the foundation for its existence. Only when national security is ensured can Hong Kong enjoy prosperity and stability. The Chinese government is firm in its resolve to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, and firm in its opposition to external interference in Hong Kong's affairs.
