The so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 passed by the U.S. Senate on Tuesday confuses right and wrong, misleads the public, grossly interferes in China’s internal affairs, and seriously violates international law and the basic norms governing international relations. It also shows the arbitrary nature and anti-China motives of some U.S. politicians, according to a “Radio the Greater Bay” commentary published on Wednesday.
These politicians are trying to support the Hong Kong rioters by issuing such act so that they can be dead set on going against China.
They are overreaching in meddling in China’s affairs, the commentary says.
The commentary says that their tricks do not work on China at all and the 1.4 billion Chinese people including Hong Kong compatriots have seen through their wild ambition.
Hong Kong is China’s Hong Kong and no external force should interfere in the Hong Kong affairs, the commentary says. No person and no force should underestimate the strong will and firm determination of the Chinese government and people to safeguard their national sovereignty and unity.
The commentary says the bill is an old trick to maintain the global strategic interests of the United States. These politicians want to complicate the Hong Kong issue, but the fact is that they cannot stop China’s development.
The commentary points out that U.S. senator Marco Rubio, who proposed the bill, has been biased and even hostile to China for a long time. He puts forward two proposals in every working day on average, just to seek attention.
The commentary says these U.S. politicians certainly know the result of their anti-China farce and the best advice for them is to wind up the farce as early as possible so as to avoid embarrassment.
China Media Group (CMG) launched “Radio The Greater Bay” on Sept 1 as the first national-level radio service for the emerging Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in south China.
It broadcasts at FM 101.2MHz and AM 1215KHz for 21 hours a day. Its programs span news, business, lifestyle, culture and music. The broadcast is in the Cantonese, Hakka and Chaoshan dialects which are used by the people in the area.
The move aims to help promote comprehensive advantages of the region, enhance cooperation among the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao and help the two special administrative regions integrate their own development into the overall development of the country, according to Shen Haixiong, president of the CMG.
