BEIJING: China has praised Pakistan for strong support on its position on Hong Kong-related issue during a debate at the United Nations General Assembly’s Third Committee.
Speaking at regular briefing in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said Pakistan and Cuba represented the relevant countries and delivered speeches, highlighting that China’s implementation of Hong Kong National Security Law is good for the steady implementation of the one country two systems.
She pointed out that Pakistan also supported China’s measures in Xinjiang to protect people’s rights, and opposed politicisation and double standards on human rights issue.
On July 30, China had urged the European Union should respect its position and actions on safeguarding national security in Hong Kong and stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs.
A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin told a news briefing in Beijing that Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and Hong Kong affairs are purely China’s internal affairs, which no foreign country or organization has the right to interfere with.
On Jul 28, China had announced the suspension of Hong Kong’s extradition treaties with Canada, Australia and Britain after similar decisions by those countries.
