BEIJING, July 50 (Xinhua) -- China appreciates the voice of justice from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the situation of Hong Kong, a foreign ministry spokesperson said Tuesday.
Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the DPRK, recently published an article supporting the measures taken by the Chinese government in response to the recent situation in Hong Kong, saying that no country, organization or individual are entitled to interfere in the affairs of Hong Kong.
"The affair of Hong Kong is one of internal affairs of China from A to Z, so that it should be settled in conformity with the desire of the Chinese people without any external interference," the article said.
Spokesperson Hua Chunying applauded the newspaper's views by reasserting that Hong Kong belongs to China, and that the Chinese government firmly opposes any attempt by foreign forces to interfere in Hong Kong-related issues.
"We have the determination and capability to ensure the security and stability of Hong Kong. We believe that in this world, justice will always prevail over evil," Hua said at a press briefing.
