The Liaison Office of the CPC Central Committee in Hong Kong: implement the Spirit of President Xi Jinping's important speech and gather strong Social Forces to stop violence and chaos
Hong Kong, 15 Nov (Xinhua) on 15 November, the person in charge of the Liaison Office of the Central people's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative region issued a statement on resolutely implementing the spirit of President Xi Jinping's important speech on the situation. The responsible person said that on November 14, local time, when President Xi Jinping attended the 11th meeting of BRICS leaders in Brasilia, he made clear the Chinese Government's solemn position on the current situation in Hong Kong and clearly put forward the "six firmness." It has pointed out the direction and provided a follow for Hong Kong to stop the violence and control the chaos and restore order.
This is the second time in this month that President Xi Jinping has talked about the situation in Hong Kong. President Xi stressed that fighting violence and restoring order are the most urgent tasks for Hong Kong at present. This is not only the judgment of the central authorities on the current situation in Hong Kong, but also the specific requirements of the work. President Xi pointed out that he will continue to firmly support the Chief Executive in leading the Hong Kong Special Administrative region Government in its administration according to law, firmly support the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing the law, and firmly support 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. This "six firmness" once again shows that the Central people's Government will, as always, support Hong Kong and is the strongest backing for Hong Kong to overcome the current difficulties. At the same time, it also demonstrates the firm determination of the Central people's Government to resolutely oppose and thwart the attempts of domestic and foreign forces to intervene and disturb Hong Kong.
The official said that the continuous acts of large-scale illegal and violent acts over the past five months, especially the recent incidents of radical violent crimes, have seriously trampled on the rule of law and social order, and seriously undermined the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. A serious challenge to the bottom line of the principle of "one country, two systems" has pushed Hong Kong into an extremely dangerous situation. I hope that the executive, legislative and judicial organs of Hong Kong will co-operate with each other and take the initiative. I hope that all sectors of the community and the general public will have the courage to act and make joint efforts to rally a stronger momentum of public opinion and social forces, so as to curb violence more effectively and restore social order. I believe that with the unswerving support of the Central people's Government, all sectors of Hong Kong will work together to face the difficulties and pool their collective wisdom, so as to stop violence and restore order, safeguard the common homes of the 7.5 million people of Hong Kong, and promote "one country, two systems" to move forward steadily.
