Major General Chen Daoxiang, commander of the People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison, said his troops will firmly execute the central government's policies and decisions and strive to safeguard the city's long-term prosperity and stability.

The garrison's troops will uphold the principle of "one country, two systems" and complete missions given by the Communist Party of China and the Chinese people, Major General Chen Daoxiang said

Chen, also a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress, the top legislature, was quoted by China National Radio as saying in a report published on Tuesday that the PLA Hong Kong Garrison is a major force in protecting the national security in the special administrative region and it strongly supports the draft decision proposed by the Standing Committee of the 13th NPC concerning measures on national security in Hong Kong.

"This decision will help to curb and punish any attempt to jeopardize the national unity, deter separatists and foreign interference, and show our unwavering resolution of safeguarding the national sovereignty and territorial integrity," the officer said.
