Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong: the United States on Hong Kong political reform report ignored the facts

Published an annual report
According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Office of the People's Republic of China yesterday issued a report on the annual report on the US-China Economic and Security Assessment Committee. A reporter asked: November 20, the US Congress "US economic and security assessment committee" published an annual report that the NPC Standing Committee's decision on political reform does not meet the basic law and the relevant international conventions. What's your comment? A: This report ignores the fact that we are strongly dissatisfied with this irresponsible argument. Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China whose constitutional basis for democratic development and universal suffrage is the relevant decision of the Basic Law and the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress. The Chinese central government has unswervingly supported Hong Kong's efforts to promote democracy in accordance with the law. In the past 17 years since the reunification of Hong Kong, the level of democracy in the election of the Chief Executive has been increasing and the number of direct elections in the Legislative Council elections has been increasing. The decision of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on August 31 this year is in line with the Constitution and the Basic Law and is in line with Hong Kong's actual situation and the principle of gradual and orderly rationality and can not be shaken. This decision will enable Hong Kong's 5 million eligible voters to achieve the "one person, one vote" universal suffrage in 2017. It is a great step forward in the development of Hong Kong's political system. I reiterate that Hong Kong's political development is China's internal affairs. We are firmly opposed to any foreign intervention in Hong Kong in any way.
