HONG KONG - The Commissioner's Office of the Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong has summoned a senior official from the US Consulate General in Hong Kong after an official there reportedly met with Hong Kong separatists recently.
The Commissioner's Office of the Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong said that China is rock-firm in upholding national sovereignty and security and Hong Kong's prosperity and stability
The office lodged stern representations with the US consulate general to express strong disapproval and require clarification over the incident, according to a press release issued by the office on Thursday.
The office said that China is rock-firm in upholding national sovereignty and security and Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and in opposing any interference in Hong Kong affairs by any country, organization or individual in whatever form.
"We strongly urge the members of the US Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao to abide by international law and basic norms governing international relations, including the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, and observe their obligations as consular personnel," according to the statement.
The office urged related US officials to immediately make a clean break from anti-China forces who stir up trouble in Hong Kong, stop sending out wrong signals to violent offenders, refrain from meddling with Hong Kong affairs, and avoid going further down the wrong path.
