Q: It is reported that the UK House of Common's foreign affairs committee announced to inquire into the implementation of Sino-British Joint Declaration over the past 30 years. How does China comment on this?
A: Since the return of Hong Kong in 1997, the practice of "one country, two systems" policy has proved to be a great succuss recognized by the world. Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and the Hong Kong affairs fall entirely within China's internal affairs. The Chinese government is firmly opposed to intervention by any foreign force under any excuse. What the British side has done interferes in China's internal affairs, to which China expresses its strong dissatisfaction and resolute objection.
China has lodged solemn representations with the British side. China urges the UK to earnestly respect China's position and concerns, honor its commitment, put an instant end to interference in Hong Kong affairs in any form, and maintain the sound development of Sino-UK relations with practical actions.
