|Xi Jinping: The Most Urgent Task for Hong Kong at Present Is to End Violence and Chaos and Restore Order|
On November 14, 2019 local time, President Xi Jinping made clear the Chinese government's solemn position on the current situation in Hong Kong when attending the 11th BRICS Summit in Brasilia, Brazil.
Xi Jinping noted, the continuous radical, violent and criminal activities in Hong Kong have severely trampled on the rule of law and social order, severely undermined Hong Kong's stability and prosperity, and challenged the bottom line of "one country, two systems" policy. The most urgent task for Hong Kong at present is to end violence and chaos and restore order. We will continue to firmly support Chief Executive in governing Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in accordance with law, and support the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing law, and support the Hong Kong judicial organs in bringing violent criminals to justice according to law. The Chinese government is determined to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, implement the "one country, two systems" policy, and opposes any foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs.
