Xi Jinping: stopping violence, controlling chaos and restoring order is the most urgent task for Hong Kong at present
Brasilia, 14 Nov (Xinhua) on 14 November local time, when President Xi Jinping attended the 11th meeting of BRICS leaders in Brasilia, he made clear the solemn position of the Chinese Government on the current situation in Hong Kong.
Xi Jinping pointed out: the continuing radical violent crimes in Hong Kong seriously trample on the rule of law and social order, seriously undermine Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and seriously challenge the bottom line of the principle of "one country, two systems." Stopping violence and fighting chaos and restoring order are the most urgent tasks for Hong Kong at present. We will continue to firmly support the Chief Executive in leading the Hong Kong Special Administrative region Government in its administration in accordance with the law, the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing the law, and the Hong Kong judiciary in punishing violent criminals in accordance with the law. The Chinese Government is unswervingly determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, unswervingly implement the principle of "one country, two systems" and oppose any external interference in Hong Kong affairs.
