National security is a nation's top priority and the prerequisite for a country to survive and thrive. The legislation for Hong Kong is aimed at eliminating the loopholes in national security and ensuring Hong Kong's long-term stability and prosperity, which is part of China's internal affairs in which no other country has the right to interfere.
He recalled that leaders and statesmen of the elder generation in China and the United States acted in the fundamental interests of the two peoples and made the political decision of historic significance with their exceptional strategic vision and political courage to rise above the differences in ideology and social systems.
Yang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, said that China's rapid development over the decades, which benefited from interactions and cooperation with countries around the world, has in turn provided the United States and other countries with sustained growth impetus and important opportunities.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The United States is not qualified to build a coalition of "clean countries" because the country itself is dirty all over, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday.
He noted that at a recent UNHRC session, 70 countries supported China's formulation of the law and condemned interference in China's internal affairs by using Hong Kong as a cover.

"China is firmly opposed to such practices," said Zhao.
