EYEAFRICA TV: Beijing, China: No one has right to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, said Surinamese President Desire Delano Bouterse on the recent situation of Hong Kong.
On Wednesday, the United States signed the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 into law.
China’s foreign ministry on Thursday slammed the move as a serious interference in China’s internal affairs and in violation of international law.
In an interview with the China Global Television Network (CGTN) on Thursday, Bouterse said he is concerned about the situation in Hong Kong, and expressed support for China’s stance.
“We have to look at this from an international law perspective, and the UN Charter says it all. Our stance is very clear about this. No one has the right to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries. We reject such interference,” said Bouterse.
Bouterse is on a state visit to China from Nov. 27 to 30. He met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People on Wednesday.
