Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has promised the Hong Kong people that the controversial security law to tighten restrictions on dissent in the territory will not affect their rights and should instead limit what is described as “excessive interference”.
“This was caused by excessive and illegal interference by foreigners in Hong Kong,” said the Foreign Minister amid a new wave of opposition protests in Hong Kong against what they perceive as a new attack on his partial independence. in terms of China.
This public “turmoil,” as the minister described it, and foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs have “put China’s national security at great risk,” he said at a press conference on Sunday.
“In such circumstances, establishing a legal system with its enforcement mechanisms to safeguard national security in (Hong Kong) has become a priority,” said Wang. “We have to do this immediately,” he said.
