Han Zheng meets with Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative region Carrie Lam
Beijing, 6 Nov (Xinhua) on 6 November, Han Zheng, member of the standing Committee of the political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, met with Carrie Lam, chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative region, who came to Beijing to attend the meeting of the leading Group on the Construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area.
Han Zheng said that in the past five months, the incident of amending the law has evolved into continuous violence, endangering the overall interests of the Hong Kong community and the vital interests of the general public. The Central people's Government fully affirms the due diligence of Chief Executive Carrie Lam and the governing team, as well as the Hong Kong Police Force. Stopping violence and controlling chaos and restoring order are still the most important tasks in Hong Kong at present, and they are also the common responsibility of the executive, legislature and judiciary of Hong Kong. It is hoped that all sectors in Hong Kong will further rally the positive energy of combating violence, upholding the rule of law and maintaining stability. We have full confidence in "one country, two systems" and should uphold and improve it in practice so that "one country, two systems" can be carried out steadily and further.
Han Zheng stressed: the central government has always been a strong backing for Hong Kong to maintain prosperity and stability, and firmly supports the SAR Government in taking more active and effective measures to solve the livelihood problems of Hong Kong. In particular, the housing and employment problems of low-and middle-income families and young people have made the development of Hong Kong better benefit the general public.
Carrie Lam said: the Hong Kong SAR Government will strengthen its determination to stop violence and chaos, restore social order in Hong Kong as soon as possible, strive to solve people's livelihood problems, and promote the stable development of Hong Kong's economy.
