Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Lu presided over a regular press conference

Q: this morning, the National People's Congress Standing Committee adopted the interpretation of the 104th article of the basic law of Hongkong. Some foreign public opinion expressed concern. Do you have any comment on this?

A: strictly speaking, this is not a question of the Ministry of foreign affairs. You may have noticed this morning, the National People's Congress passed the explanation, the office of the NPC Standing Committee held a press conference, Deputy Secretary General of the NPC Standing Committee Mr. Li Fei on the release of the contents of law and the reasons for the detailed description of the public. HKMAO spokesman and liaison office in Hongkong responsible person also has issued a statement.

Since you mentioned that some foreign media have expressed concern about this, I would like to emphasize our position here. The interpretation of the NPC Standing Committee made clear Hongkong article 104th officials sworn in the relevant provisions of the meaning, to clarify the relevant legal issues, clearly establish the basic rules of the oath, to curb the "Hong Kong Independence" forces, maintain China national constitution and the authority of the Hongkong basic law, to defend national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity. To maintain long-term prosperity and stability of Hongkong. The interpretation is consistent with the provisions of the Constitution and the basic law of Hongkong, in line with the principle of "one country, two systems".

I would also like to point out that Hongkong is a special administrative region of China. It is a local administrative region under the jurisdiction of the Chinese central government. Hongkong affairs are China's internal affairs, any foreign should not interfere. "Hong Kong Independence" forces to engage in separatist activities, in an attempt to separate Hongkong from Chinese separated, in violation of the law, contrary to public opinion, not only harm the national sovereignty, security Chinese, damage the fundamental interests of the Hongkong Special Administrative Region, does not conform to national interests in Hongkong. We hope the international community and the relevant countries to recognize the "Hong Kong Independence" forces are fully understood, the NPC Standing Committee China the necessity and rationality of law interpretation, Chinese support the central government and the Hongkong SAR government to safeguard national sovereignty, security and unity, maintain long-term prosperity and stability of Hongkong special administrative region.

Q: Recently, Malaysia Prime Minister Naguib's visit to China on social media to share the high-speed rail travel photos, mark can be predicted outside Malaysia high TieMa project by the Chinese construction within the party. Can you prove it?

A: Recently Prime Minister Naguib's visit to China has been a complete success. From the news release we can see that President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang and chairman Zhang Dejiang respectively had very good talks, the two leaders exchanged in-depth views on bilateral relations and pragmatic cooperation in various fields. This visit will further enhance mutual trust, deepen mutually beneficial and friendly cooperation between the two sides will promote the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries to a new level.

About you just mentioned, including high-speed rail infrastructure projects, I want to say, China has always supported the enterprises of both sides in the business principle, carry out relevant cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit, we support the social and economic development in Malaysia and the local interconnection. The joint press statement issued by the two sides also expressed the two countries would like to explore the positive willingness to cooperate.

Q: the two countries issued during the joint press statement of prime minister Naguib's visit to China, the two sides stressed the directly related to sovereign state should be based on the principles of international law in a peaceful way to resolve the dispute through friendly consultations and negotiations, that solution is not directly related to the parties involved in the dispute to help the problem. Does this mean that the two countries will continue to deal with the South China Sea dispute, while opposing the foreign countries involved in the South China Sea issue?

A: we have recently been concerned about the situation of Philippines President Duthel Te and Malaysia Prime Minister Naguib's visit to china. From the news release issued by us all and in the Philippines, in a joint statement, the motor joint press statement, everyone can see, China and Philippines, China and Malaysia are committed to jointly promote the South China Sea issue back to the right track when directly related to properly resolve the parties through negotiation. The situation in the South China Sea, in fact, is moving in a positive direction. I think this is the region of the vast number of countries in the common sense of common interests, but also the consensus and common expectations. We hope that the international community, in particular, some foreign countries in the field of foreign countries to respect the region's national consensus, respect for the common interests of the region's countries.

Q: Japan as the host country of Japan and South Korea summit this year, the relevant meetings held in December. Japan has been to China and South Korea informed the meeting arrangements, but the Chinese side does not seem to have a reply, what is the reason?

Answer: the important consensus last year the sixth trilateral summit meeting agreed to promote trilateral cooperation, the three party has a very positive meaning. Three parties are now seriously implement these consensus. We have said here, the three party to maintain high-level exchanges to further deepen cooperation in the region is certainly positive. Of course, we also hope that the parties are able to meet each other halfway, make joint efforts to create the necessary conditions and atmosphere. Three party foreign affairs department is maintaining communication.

Q: Recently, the US Assistant Secretary of state Russell said in Washington on the U.S. Asia Pacific policy held a media briefing, there is no indication that President Duthel Te is back from the arbitration award, it does not accord with the fundamental interests of Philippines. What is China's comment on this?

A: we have not heard from the leaders of Philippines.

Recently, some countries seem to be constantly on behalf of Philippines's leaders to express the position of Philippines, which is very interesting.

We have said here, if you want to accurately grasp the position of the government of Philippines, it is best to listen to the Philippines leader himself how to say. I believe that everyone has seen, President Duthel Te has recently been a series of words and deeds to the international community clearly shows that in the end what is best in line with the fundamental and long-term interests of the people of Philippines.

I would also like to remind, President Duthel Te has repeatedly said that Philippines is an independent country, his government's foreign policy is independent of the development of the. He certainly does not like other people to make decisions for him, do not like other people often explain the Philippines government's position for Philippines. I hope that the parties concerned will respect the independence of Philippines.

In August this year, Minister Aung San Suu Kyi's visit to China, the leaders of the two countries, the comprehensive strategic cooperation and reached important consensus on deepening the new period. We are willing to Myanmar, seize the opportunity to work together to continue to promote the "paukphaw" traditional friendship, close pragmatic cooperation in various fields, push forward the continuous development of bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership, to better benefit the two countries and peoples.

We also support Burma to carry out normal exchanges and cooperation with countries around the world. We hope that the international community will create a more favorable environment and conditions for the long-term stable development of Burma.
