    Ambassador Zhang Ming, Head of the Mission to the EU, interviewed by the BBC to discuss the current situation in Hong Kong

    Ambassador Zhang Ming Speaks to BBC on the Situation in Hong Kong

    August 9, 2019

    9 August 2019

    BBC: How do you see the situation now in Hong Kong?

    BBC: What do you think of the current situation in Hong Kong?

    Ambassador: I think it's extreme violence, not peaceful demonstration. Some radicals defaced the national emblem and flag, stored explosives, set fire on public buildings, smashed cars, and so on. So this is law-breaking. Should the “chaos” and “Violence” continue, prosperity and stability in Hong Kong would be put to ruins. And so would “One Country, Two Systems”. The top priority at the moment is to stop violence and chaos and restore law and order.

    Ambassador Zhang: This is extreme violence and has nothing to do with peaceful demonstrations. Some extremists insulted the national emblem, stored explosives, carried out arson, and smashed vehicles. These are serious violations. If such "violence" and "chaos" are allowed to continue, it will inevitably destroy "one country, two systems" and the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. Hong Kong's most important task at present is to stop violence and restore order.

    BBC: You say that. But certainly earlier in these protests some two million people were taking to the streets. That's a quarter of the population of Hong Kong. That's a significant number of people dissatisfied with the way in which the territory is being run.

    BBC: But before two million people took to the streets to protest, accounting for a quarter of Hong Kong's total population. (Note) A considerable number of people were dissatisfied with Hong Kong's current governance.

    Ambassador: But now, as we saw, it is turning into riots and chaos. So we have to stop the chaos.

    Ambassador Zhang: But what we are seeing is that there are riots now, and the riots must be stopped. Candidates can book SMS reminders for free if they are afraid that they missed the exam registration time and time , You will be reminded by SMS to register and test time.

    BBC: You don't say that violence is growing out of frustration by a younger generation of Hong Kongers, who weren't even born when Hong Kong was returned by Britain to China, who feel that they want more control over their own destinies, and who perhaps have different aspirations than those who were around in 1997.

    BBC: Do you agree that violence is the frustration of the younger generation in Hong Kong? These young people were not even born when they returned to Hong Kong. They want more control over their own destiny, which is different from the demands of the 1997 (pre-born) generation. .

    Ambassador: There are some people who are plotting behind the scenes and who are trying to use the youngsters as a political pawn, which is very dangerous. I believe that, as their real motives are laid bare, more and more young people would come to realize this and change course.

    Ambassador Zhang: Some people are hiding behind the scenes, using young people as chess pieces and cannon fodder for their political plots. I believe that with the gradual exposure of the manipulators behind the scenes, more and more young people will see their face and get lost.

    BBC: This week, Head of Chinese Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office Mr Zhang Xiaoming told reporters, and I quote, that if the situation worsens further, and there's turmoil that the Hong Kong government is unable to control, the Central Government will absolutely not just watch without doing anything. Could you maybe expand on that?

    BBC: Zhang Xiaoming, director of the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, told reporters this week that if the situation continues to deteriorate, the central government will never sit idly by without the Hong Kong government's control. Can you talk about this?

    Ambassador: As we know, Hong Kong is part of China. All Chinese people, including people in Hong Kong, treasure and uphold peace and stability in the Hong Kong SAR. The Chinese people would not allow the situation to get out of control. According to the Basic Law, the Central Government has sufficient means and capabilities to maintain stability and prosperity and a peaceful life for people in Hong Kong, and to safeguard the "One Country, Two Systems".

    Ambassador Zhang: As we all know, Hong Kong is part of China. All Chinese people, including Hong Kong people, value and maintain peace and stability in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and will not allow the situation to get out of control. According to the Basic Law, the central government has enough methods and sufficient power to maintain the stability and prosperity of Hong Kong and "one country, two systems".

    BBC: Are you referring here to the possible deployment of the People's Liberation Army in Hong Kong?

    BBC: Do you mean that (the central government) might use the army in Hong Kong?

    Ambassador: The Central Government, as I mentioned, has sufficient means and capabilities to maintain Hong Kong's stability and prosperity.

    Ambassador Zhang: As I said just now, the central government has enough methods and powerful enough to maintain the stability and prosperity of Hong Kong.

    BBC: But does the Central Government in Beijing have any red line when it comes to maintaining stability? You yourself have been speaking about the chaos and violence in Hong Kong.

    BBC: Does the central government have a red line in maintaining stability?

    Ambassador: In any country, any society, such chaos and riots are not allowed. So that is the red line.

    Ambassador Zhang: No country or society will allow riots. This is the red line.

    BBC: So the red line has been crossed already according to you.

    BBC: In your opinion, this red line has broken?

    Ambassador: I think some rioters are touching (the red line).

    Ambassador Zhang: I think those thugs are touching this red line.

    BBC: So the protesters, in your view, are getting very close to crossing that red line, which would then prompt the Central Government to send in the People's Liberation Army.

    BBC: So in your opinion, the demonstrators are very close to crossing the red line, which may prompt the central government to send troops?

    Ambassador: I think some people are acting very dangerously. They are violating the Basic Law and ruining the order and system in Hong Kong. So they are playing fire.

    Ambassador Zhang: The behavior of some people is very dangerous. They violate the Basic Law and disrupt the order and system of Hong Kong. These people are playing with fire.

    BBC: How important is it to your government to maintain the “One Country, Two Systems”?

    BBC: How important is it for the Chinese government to maintain "one country, two systems"?

    Ambassador: That's the basic policy for the Central Government and the Hong Kong SAR. We will try our best to safeguard the “One Country, Two Systems”.

    Ambassador Zhang: "One country, two systems" is the central government's basic policy on Hong Kong. We will do our best to maintain "one country, two systems".

    BBC: Because a couple of years ago, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in uncertain terms that the “One Country, Two Systems” was not binding on Beijing. It was only, and I quote, “a historical document that lacked practical significance”.

    BBC: A few years ago, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated in a vague way that "one country, two systems" is no longer binding on the Chinese government, and believes that the "Sino-British Joint Declaration" is only a historical document and has no practical significance.

    Ambassador: At the moment Hong Kong was handed over in 1997, the British rights and obligations under the document were fulfilled. Now, Britain has no sovereignty, no jurisdiction, and no right of supervision over Hong Kong.

    Ambassador Zhang: With the return of Hong Kong in 1997, all the rights and obligations related to the British side stipulated in the joint statement have been fulfilled. The British side has no sovereignty, no governance and no supervision over Hong Kong after the reunification.

    BBC: So China could tear up that joint declaration at any time? They could say, “Sorry, the 'One Country, Two Systems' no longer exists. We are not interested in it.”

    BBC: Will China tear up the Sino-British Joint Statement at any time? You can say, "Sorry, 'one country, two systems' no longer exists, and we are no longer interested in this."

    Ambassador: We'll try our best to safeguard the “One Country, Two Systems”.

    Ambassador Zhang: We will make every effort to safeguard "one country, two systems".

    BBC: Why? Why should you?

    BBC: Why?

    Ambassador: This is for the interest of Hong Kong, for the interest of China, and for the interest of people all over China.

    Ambassador Zhang: Because it is in the interests of Hong Kong, China, and the interests of all Chinese people.

    BBC: Are you worried, Ambassador, about the possibility of what might be described as “contagion” that these pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong might spread to the Chinese mainland? What the people are asking for in Hong Kong, which is a greater say in the election of their leaders, might be copied in China itself.

    BBC: Are you worried that Hong Kong ’s "pro-democracy" protests may be "contagious" to the mainland? The people of Hong Kong are asking for more voting rights. Will this demand be replicated on the mainland?

    Ambassador: The people in Hong Kong are asking for stopping “riots” and “chaos” in Hong Kong. And no one would allow such acts to spread into the mainland.

    Ambassador Zhang: The people of Hong Kong demand to stop "violence" and "disorder". No one will allow "violence" and "disorder" to spread to other parts of China.

    BBC: But you're worried that might happen.

    BBC: So you worry that this might happen?

    Ambassador: No worry.

    Ambassador Zhang: I have no worries about this.

    BBC: Ambassador, thank you very much!

    BBC: Thank you for the interview with the BBC.
