EYEAFRICA TV: Beijing, China: U.S. congresswoman’s support for Hong Kong rioters is biased, and any intention to interfere in China’s internal affairs will fail in the end, said the spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Thursday.
Spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks at a press briefing in Beijing. Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the United States House of Representatives, twittered Wednesday to express her support for rioters in Hong Kong. In this regard, Hua stressed that the U.S. congresswoman is lying about the real situation in Hong Kong.
“A few days ago, an American living in Hong Kong wrote an open letter to the U.S. Senate, which reads: What the Western world sees is not what’s truly happening in Hong Kong. Some U.S. congressmen are lying by saying that they do not see violence, of which they should be ashamed. Now most people in Hong Kong are living in fear, not because of anything China has done, but because of the bad things done by the demonstrators you support,” Hua said.
Hua also said that it is the people with ulterior motives like Pelosi who have further fomented the rioters.
“Ordinary Americans can have such an understanding, but it is very regrettable that political figures like Pelosi have failed to tell the truth. Instead they beautified rioters’ violent crimes as non-violent struggles, supporting those who disturb Hong Kong and stand against China. The hypocrisy and malignity hidden in such behavior are really ugly and astonishing. It is precisely the support and incitement by those like Pelosi that has fermented the violent crime,” she said.
Hua solemnly stated that Hong Kong always belongs to China, and any attempt to interfere in China’s internal affairs will fail.
“I also want to solemnly tell Pelosi that no matter how your eyes are deceived by prejudice and how your heart is filled with evilness, Hong Kong always belongs to China. Any attempt to interfere in Hong Kong affairs is doomed to fail, and any intention to split Hong Kong will fail in the end,” Hua said.
