Wu Zhaoxie said that Taiwan would not be the “second Hong Kong”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference on the 26th. In response to a reporter’s question: Taiwan’s “Foreign Minister” Wu Zhaoxie said in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation a few days ago that the mainland is conducting military activities in the East China Sea, Taiwan Strait, and the South China Sea in an attempt to expand its influence. It is hoped that countries with similar ideas will pay attention to and support Taiwan. He also stated that Hong Kong no longer enjoys the economic and political freedoms it had in the past and will not allow Taiwan to become the “second Hong Kong.” How does the Ministry of Foreign Affairs respond to this?
Zhao Lijian said, first of all, I want to correct one of your incorrect statements that Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory and there is no so-called “foreign minister”. The Taiwan authorities have repeatedly used Hong Kong affairs to maliciously slander and slander the mainland under the guise of so-called democracy and freedom. In essence, they are chaotic Hong Kong and seeking “independence.” This kind of clumsy political manipulation is nothing more than seeking attention and focusing on hot spots. It will not succeed but will only insult itself.
