  2021年9月29日,外交部驻港公署刘光源特派员在《南华早报》发表题为《美方打“香港牌”的如意算盘终将落空!》的署名文章,驳斥美方“以港遏华”的政治操弄,阐释中央爱港护港的拳拳心意和坚强指引。文章28日亦在该报网页版刊登。全文如下:

  美方打“香港牌”的如意算盘终将落空!

  24日,中国外交部发布了《美国干预香港事务、支持反中乱港势力事实清单》,这是最确凿的证据链,也是最严肃的警告函,记录着美方2019年“修例风波”以来玩弄“以港遏华”政治操弄的黑暗时刻,也展示了中国政府和人民回击美霸权行径的坚定决心和刚强意志。

  3个月前,习近平主席在中国共产党百年华诞之际郑重宣示,中国人民绝不允许任何外来势力欺负、压迫、奴役我们,谁妄想这样干,必将在14亿多中国人民用血肉筑成的钢铁长城面前碰得头破血流!这份事实清单再次正告美方,如果谁想操弄香港议题破坏“一国两制”、甚至把香港当作对内地进行渗透破坏的前线堡垒,那都是颠倒了时空、打错了算盘、枉费了心机。中国的主权、安全、发展利益不容挑战,香港的团结和谐、繁荣稳定不容破坏!中国人不惹事、不怕事,不信邪、不怕鬼,犯中华者,虽强必败!

  “修例风波”以来,美方屡屡就香港事务说三道四,对特区政府极尽污蔑抹黑,对反中乱港势力极尽粉饰美化,明目张胆阻挠香港国安法和中国全国人大有关决定顺利实施。他们还动辄挥舞制裁大棒、滥施“长臂管辖”,甚至纠集一些盟友,企图将香港问题国际化、多边化、复杂化。美方的险恶用心就是把香港变成反中“桥头堡”、暴乱“大本营”,进而危害中国国家安全、遏制中华民族伟大复兴。其行可鄙,其心可诛。

  我们不妨跟随清单白纸黑字,回顾一下美方无所不用其极地打“香港牌”的累累恶行。从炮制“香港人权与民主法”“香港自治法”,到叫嚣“香港安全港法案”“香港人民自由与选择法案”;从取消香港特殊地位、限制国防技术出口香港、禁止使用“香港制造”标签,到编造“香港商业警告”、悍然制裁中央和特区政府官员;从捏造声明污蔑特区政府和警方,到拼凑报告抹黑中央对港政策、歪曲“一国两制”;从频繁会见反中乱港头目,到大肆为犯罪分子包庇开脱;从绑架“五眼联盟”“七国集团”兜售涉港声明,到公开施压联合国安理会、联署反华联合发言……

  乾坤朗朗,天理昭昭。铁一般的事实证明,美方就是破坏香港繁荣稳定的最大幕后黑手。美反华政客满口“与港人站在一起”,打着“民主”“自由”的旗号,装着“国际法官”的姿态,干的却是与反中乱港分子沆瀣一气、大搞双重标准、践踏国际法和国际关系基本准则的卑劣勾当。

  谁人真心为香港?香港市民心中自有一杆秤。绝不是成天盼着香港街头出现“美丽风景线”的那些人,绝不是到处唱衰香港前景、煽动移民撤资的那些人,绝不是借保护香港之名行制裁香港之实的那些人。事实已然证明,没有人比中国中央政府更爱护香港,更希望香港长治久安,更关心香港市民根本福祉。沧海横流方显英雄本色,中央坚持依法治港、果断连续出手,推动“一国两制”重回正轨,还香港一片清朗祥和的碧港蓝天。中央爱港护港的拳拳心意和坚强指引必将载入“一国两制”事业的光辉史册。

  上周香港举行了国安法实施、选举制度完善后的第一场重要选举,广大选民积极用手中选票表达对选举新制的拥护和特区光明未来的期许。随着国安法实施和“爱国者治港”落地,香港踏上了拨乱反正历史新征程,迎来了良政善治发展新气象,社会走出“泛政治化”泥潭,聚焦发展这把“金钥匙”。相信有“十四五”规划明确新定位,有粤港澳大湾区注入新动能,有刚出炉不久的“前海方案”提供新机遇,香港定能在中央坚定支持下,坚守“一国”之本、善用“两制”之利,在融入国家发展大局中实现更大发展,绽放“东方之珠”更加璀璨的光芒。

  “潮平两岸阔,风正一帆悬”。香港由乱及治、由治及兴的历史大势不可阻挡,“一国两制”行稳致远的坚定步伐不可阻挡,包括美方在内任何反华势力的聒噪、干涉、施压、制裁都注定是蚍蜉撼树,必败无疑!

  China won’t be intimidated by US bullying over Hong Kong

  On September 24, the Chinese foreign ministry published a long list of US actions that sought to interfere in Hong Kong affairs. This fact sheet provides irrefutable proof of how Washington has played the Hong Kong card to try and contain China since the 2019 turbulence.

  In a speech to mark the centenary of the Communist Party of China, President Xi Jinping declared that “Chinese people will never allow any foreign forces to bully, oppress, or subjugate us. Anyone who would attempt to do so will find themselves on a collision course with a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.”

  In a similar vein, the ministry’s list sends a clear signal to the United Sates that it would be a miscalculation on its part to try and exploit Hong Kong-related issues to derail “one country, two systems”.

  Chinese people will never give in to coercion or intimidation, and China will brook no challenge to its sovereignty, security and right to development. Neither will it tolerate any damage to Hong Kong’s unity, harmony and stability.

  Since the 2019 chaos in Hong Kong, the US has made irresponsible remarks about Hong Kong affairs and discredited the Hong Kong special administrative region government. Washington has tried to thwart the implementation of the national security law and other relevant decisions of China’s National People’s Congress.

  With its arbitrary sanctions, the US sought to exercise “long-arm jurisdiction” over Hong Kong, and even teamed up with some allies to complicate Hong Kong issues by hyping them up on the international stage.

  The motive of the US has been laid bare – to turn Hong Kong into a base from which to endanger China’s national security and stunt the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The 102 examples in the ministry’s fact sheet are the smoking gun.

  These examples fall into five categories.

  First, bills related to Hong Kong. The US enacted the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, and put forward the Hong Kong Safe Harbor Act and the Hong Kong People’s Freedom and Choice Act.

  Second, sanctions against Hong Kong. The US revoked Hong Kong’s special status, ended exports of US defence equipment to the city, banned imported goods produced in Hong Kong from indicating “Hong Kong” as their origin, issued a so-called Hong Kong Business Advisory and sanctioned mainland and Hong Kong officials.

  Third, defamation of Hong Kong. The US made unfounded charges against the Hong Kong government and Hong Kong police and vilified the central government’s policy on Hong Kong and one country, two systems.

  Forth, support for anti-China forces. The US met often with leading figures who are against China and who attempt to destabilise Hong Kong. It also called for providing shelter for offenders.

  Fifth, ganging up with allies to pressure Hong Kong. The US has issued negative statements on Hong Kong jointly with other Five Eyes and G7 countries.

  The hawks in Washington proclaim to “stand with the people of Hong Kong”, yet collude with others to disrupt Hong Kong. People can clearly see America’s double standards.

  Who truly cares about Hong Kong? Definitely not those who yearn for “a beautiful sight to behold” on Hong Kong streets or those who impose sanctions on Hong Kong in the name of protecting Hong Kong.

  No one hopes for Hong Kong’s lasting stability and values the well-being of Hong Kong people more than the Chinese central government. Facing the social unrest two years ago, it took a series of decisive actions in accordance with law to bring one country, two systems back on track and restore peace to the city. The transformation taking place in Hong Kong is the strongest testimony to the sincerity of the central government.

  The 2021 Election Committee elections, the first polls after the implementation of the national security law and the improvement of Hong Kong’s electoral system, were held earlier this month. Voters expressed their support for the electoral changes and their expectations for a brighter future for Hong Kong with a turnout of about 90 per cent.

  Under law and the principle of “patriots administering Hong Kong”, the city is on a new journey to right wrongs and improve governance. The society has stepped out of the quagmire of “making everything political” and is now focused on development, which holds the key to resolving deep-seated issues in Hong Kong.

  Hong Kong enjoys firm support of the central government. With the benefit of the abundant opportunities brought by the 14th five-year plan, the Greater Bay Area and the newly released Qianhai plan, Hong Kong will stay more committed to the foundation of one country as it leverages the benefits of two Systems. Further progress can be expected as the city integrates itself further into the overall national development.

  The city’s shift from chaos to stability and prosperity is irresistible, and the steadfast implementation of one country, two systems is unstoppable.

  All anti-China forces, including those in the US, should not overestimate their ability to pressure China and hamper its development. Their tricks will only boomerang.
