2019/12/18

 

On December 16, 2019, the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines hosted a reception at the Grand Hyatt Manila Hotel to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Macau's return to the Motherland.

 

Present during the event are Undersecretary Marvin Gatpayat and George Apacible of the Presidential Communications Office of the Philippines,  the Congress and Government representative, members of the diplomatic corps, Chinese companies, representatives of the Filipino-Chinese community and members of the media.

 

In his speech, Ambassador Huang said that the situation in Hong Kong has attracted much attention. The nature of the issue is that extreme violent offenders encouraged and supported by some external forces, have disrupted law and order in Hong Kong, attempted to destabilize Hong Kong and undermine "One Country, Two Systems". Hong Kong is in a very dangerous situation, which will also hurt the interests of 230,000 Overseas Filipino Workers in Hong Kong. Just as President Xi Jinping pointed out: "The top priority for Hong Kong is to end violence and restore order. We will continue to firmly support the SAR Government under the leadership of the Chief Executive in governing Hong Kong in accordance with law. We firmly support the judicial institutions of Hong Kong in bringing violent offenders to justice in accordance with law."

 

Ambassador Huang emphasized that the Chinese Government remains unwavering in its determination to safeguard China's national sovereignty, security and development interests, implement 'One Country, Two Systems', and oppose any interference from external forces in Hong Kong affairs.

 

Ambassador Huang also sincerely appealed to the Filipino people to look at the Hong Kong issue objectively and fairly, support the Hong Kong SAR government in ending violence, restore order, abide the rule of law, refrain from participating in any words and deeds that interfere with Hong Kong affairs, and do more things that can help Hong Kong's prosperity and stability.
