Before presenting the National Security law for Hong Kong to the National People’s Congress (NPC) on Friday, the Vice Chairman of the NPC Standing Committee Wang Chen said, “China firmly opposes any form of interference by foreign forces or countries in Hong Kong affairs and, if necessary, will take countermeasures against such interference.”
Wang noted: “The NPC authorized its Standing Committee to formulate relevant laws to effectively prevent, stop, and punish all activities related to secessionism, subversion, harboring terrorists, or allowing foreign forces to interfere with the internal affairs of Hong Kong SAR.”
