Xi Jinping: Να μην αμφισβητηθεί η κυριαρχία της Κίνας στο Χονγκ Κονγκ

Ο πρόεδρος της Κίνας Σι Τζινπίνγκ υποστήριξε ότι το Χονγκ Κονγκ είναι πολύ πιο ελεύθερο απ' ό,τι προηγουμένως, αλλά προειδοποίησε το φιλοδημοκρατικό κίνημα εναντίον κάθε «απαράδεκτης» προσβολής της εξουσίας του Πεκίνου, 20 χρόνια μετά την επιστροφή στην Κίνα αυτής της πρώην βρετανικής αποικίας.

China rejects Britain's "moral duty" to Hong Kong

BEIJING, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday rejected Britain's "moral duty" to Hong Kong, adding some British lawmakers' attempts to meddle in China's internal affairs is "not acceptable" and "doomed to fail."

"Britain has no sovereignty over, no governance of, and no superintendence over Hong Kong since Hong Kong returned to China in 1997," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily press briefing.

In an emergency debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday, Members of Parliament called on the British government to condemn China for refusing a delegation from the House of Commons foreign affairs select committee to visit Hong Kong. Some MPs claimed that as a party of the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration, Britain still has a "moral duty" to Hong Kong.

The Joint Declaration has made clear the respective obligations and responsibilities of China and Britain on China's resumed sovereignty over Hong Kong and arrangements for the transitional period, said Hua.

"Some British lawmakers tried to use this so-called 'moral duty' to mislead the public and interfere in China's internal affairs. This is not acceptable, and the attempt is doomed to fail," she said.

China slams British MPs’ attempt to visit Hong Kong

China on Monday explained its refusal to allow British lawmakers to visit Hong Kong and urged them not to interfere in Hong Kong's affairs.

"The Chinese central government and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region have told Britain several times that they resolutely opposed the so-called delegation of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee going to Hong Kong for a so-called investigation and asked for the visit to be canceled," said Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a regular press briefing.

Hua was responding to a question regarding remarks made by the chairman of the British House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee who said China had acted in an overtly confrontational manner by refusing to allow them to visit the former British territory.

Hua said if certain British lawmakers were determined to travel to Hong Kong, that would be genuinely overt confrontational move and not beneficial for Sino-British ties.

"China has many times expressed its firm opposition to any foreign government, organization or person's interference in HK affairs, which are China's internal affairs," she added.

China accuses Britain of interference over Hong Kong

BEIJING: China on Wednesday accused London of interfering in its internal affairs after British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg met two leading Hong Kong pro-democracy activists urging greater freedoms from Beijing.
China "lodged solemn protests" with Britain over Tuesday's meetings with Martin Lee, founder of Hong Kong's opposition Democratic Party, and Anson Chan, the former number two in the city's government, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
"What Britain has done is interference in China's internal affairs. China strongly opposes it," said Beijing's foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei.
"Hong Kong's affairs fall within China's internal affairs. China firmly opposes any interference in Hong Kong affairs by any country under whatever pretext," said Hong.
Discontent in the former British colony, which was handed back to China in 1997, is at its highest level in years, notably over Beijing's insistence that it vet candidates before the vote for the city's next leader in 2017.

Under the "one country, two systems" deal at the time of the handover, the semi-autonomous city has guaranteed liberties not seen on the Chinese mainland, including freedom of speech and the right to protest.

But concerns are growing that these freedoms are being eroded.
A string of attacks on media workers has raised fears for press freedom, while Beijing published a "white paper" last month on Hong Kong's future that was widely seen as a warning to the city not to overstep its bounds.

Chan and Lee appeared before a British parliamentary committee on Wednesday, urging London not to turn a blind eye to "attacks" on freedoms in its former colony.

The outspoken campaigners told the Foreign Affairs Committee that London had been failing in its responsibility towards democracy in Hong Kong.
"It is vital that the British government does not turn a blind eye to current developments in Hong Kong," Chan told the committee members.

The pair heavily criticised a British parliamentary report earlier this month in which then-British foreign secretary William Hague said the city's unique constitutional framework has worked well and that there was no "perfect model" for electoral reform.
Hong Kong's current leader Leung Chun-ying was chosen by a pro-Beijing committee.
An unofficial referendum on how the next leader should be chosen drew a massive turnout of almost 800,000 people last month, angering Beijing.
It was followed by a huge pro-democracy march on July 1 which organisers said was the biggest protest since the 1997 handover.

China slashes Chris Patten's comments on Hong Kong political reform

China has reiterated its firm objection to outside forces' interference into the internal affairs of Hong Kong, according to the Office of the Commissioner of China's Foreign Ministry of China in Hong Kong.

Asked to comment on former Hong Kong governor Chris Patten's recent remarks on the political reform in Hong Kong, a spokesperson of the commissioner's office said over the weekend that Hong Kong has entered the critical stage of its political reform, it is worth noting that some people are making unfounded comments on Hong Kong's political reform for other purposes in disregard of the facts.


"I would like to reiterate that we firmly object to any outside forces' interference into Hong Kong's internal affairs and nobody should make irresponsible comments on Hong Kong's political reform again," the spokesperson said.

 --
China’s meteorological authority has issued an alert for super typhoon Usagi that is expected to hit the country’s southern coast. 

Usagi was upgraded to a super typhoon at around 5 p.m. Beijing time on Thursday. This is the strongest classification for a Typhoon. 


It has been predicted to hit the coastal region between China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and southeastern Fujian Province on Sunday evening. 

In response, the State Oceanic Administration has initiated an I-class emergency response for the typhoon, the highest level of the nation's maritime disaster response system.
The Administration says Usagi may become one of the strongest typhoons to hit China’s southeastern coast this year.

  • Powerful typhoon hits Taiwan, Philippines...

TAIPEI, Taiwan: The most powerful typhoon of the year was sweeping through the Luzon Strait on Saturday, battering island communities and drenching southern Taiwan and the northern Philippines.

Super Typhoon Usagi had maximum sustained winds of 222 kph (139 mph) and gusts exceeding 260 kph (163 mph) early Saturday, and was 550 kilometers south of Taipei, Taiwan's capital, according to the US Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center. A storm achieves super typhoon status when winds reach 240 kph (150 mph).

In the Philippines, Usagi triggered landslides and power outages in parts of the north of the country, including Batanes province where it made landfall early Saturday. No casualties have been reported.

China's National Meteorological Center announced a red alert, the observatory's highest, as the storm maintained its track toward Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. The observatory warned Usagi will impact coastal areas of Zhejiang and Fujian provinces.

The US Navy's warning center predicted that Usagi will make landfall near Hong Kong with weaker but dangerous sustained winds of 180 kph (113 mph) early Monday morning.

In Taiwan, nearly 2,500 people were evacuated from flood-prone areas and remote mountainous regions. Torrential rains were reported along the eastern coast and in the south as officials warned of cumulative rainfall of 1,000 millimeters (39 inches) along the east coast.

Usagi retains a massive diameter of 1,100 kilometers (680 miles), with its outer rain bands extending across the main northern Philippine island of Luzon and all of Taiwan. Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau warned winds of 100 kph (63 mph) could hit Taipei.

The Office of Civil Defense in Manila said at least five families had to be evacuated from their homes in mountainous Benguet province after several landslides damaged houses and roads. Pockets of power outages were reported in at least five northern provinces, where several roads and bridges were impassable.

The government's weather bureau said Usagi was forecast to blow out of Philippine territory by Saturday evening.

In Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific Airways said Saturday that flights are unaffected but warned of delayed and canceled flights from Sunday evening to Monday morning. The airline urged passengers to postpone non-essential travel on those two days.
