Spokesperson's Remarks on the Storming of LegCo complex in Hong Kong

How does China comment on the recent incident in Hong Kong where members of the public occupied the LegCo building?

July 1st is a day of great festivity for people from all walks of life in Hong Kong to commemorate the return of Hong Kong to the motherland and the establishment of the HKSAR. Some ultra-radicals, however, under the excuse of opposing the HKSAR government amending related ordinances, stormed the LegCo complex in an extremely violent manner and wantonly damaged facilities there, trampling the rule of law in Hong Kong, undermining social order and the fundamental interests of Hong Kong. This is also a blatant challenge to the bottom line of "one country, two systems". We strongly condemn this act.

The Chinese central government firmly supports the HKSAR government and police in handling the incident and holding the violent offenders criminally accountable in accordance with the law so as to restore the normal social order at an early date, guarantee residents' personal and property safety, and safeguard the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. China is firmly against any form of interference in Hong Kong's internal affairs by outside forces.
