Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks on July 2, 2020
2020/07/02

BBC: The Australian government said today they are planning some form of offer to Hong Kong citizens to have asylum or something like that. The exact plan hasn't been finalized yet but the Australian prime minister today said they're definitely considering this. Does the Chinese side have any response to that yet?

Zhao Lijian: We note relevant reports. We advise the Australian side to look at the national security legislation in Hong Kong in a correct and objective light, stop interfering in China's internal affairs with Hong Kong as a pretext, and refrain from going further down the wrong path.
