对中国驻欧盟代表团的声明,欧盟外交事务部、欧盟外交及安全政策新闻发言人斯丹诺(Peter Stano)回覆本台表示,欧盟对于在香港实施《国安法》及随后的选举制度变化的立场已经多次阐明。

对于中方指「欧盟干涉香港内部事务」的指控,这名发言人说,香港正在发生的事情具有明显的国际性。 1984 年在联合国登记的《中英联合声明》,顾名思义,是一项国际协议,并规定了中国在《基本法》和「一国两制」原则对香港自治权的国际承诺。此外,作为欧盟,我们致力于促进和捍卫所有人权、法治和民主,无论是在我们欧盟本土还是在全世界范围。我们一直在极力反对北京强加的《国家安全法》,并将继续在香港人的基本自由和权利因其实施而受到侵犯时大声疾呼。

对于中国驻欧盟代表团声称推行《国安法》和更改香港选举制度「合理合法、正当必要的决定得民心顺民意」。斯丹诺反驳指,香港人大规模动员起来,反对实施港版《国安法》、反对选举改革,反对全面镇压泛民主力量,反对扼杀多元主义,反对侵蚀基本自由,这是有目共睹的。数十万人抗议中国强加给香港的决定,这些游行抗议活动的视频和图片,让任何观察者都清楚地看到了真实的情况,无论是否企图传播相反的信息。执法部门对这些抗议活动使用暴力和任意拘留的反应,以及对知名民主人士的指控和判刑的视频和图片也说明了真实情况。

斯丹诺还驳斥了中方指「欧盟无视其境内问题」的说法。他表示,正如欧盟委员会主席冯德莱恩(Ursula von der Leyen)在「 2020 年国情咨文」中所说:「欧洲并非没有问题。但我们公开讨论它们。批评和反对不仅被接受,而且受到法律保护。因此,侵犯人权的行为无论在何时或何地发生,欧盟都必须对其表态,不管是在香港或是维吾尔人身上,我们相信民主和个人权利的普世价值。

周三,欧盟外交及安全政策高级代表、欧盟委员会副主席博雷利(Josep Borrell)就香港局势发表声明。博雷利谴责香港《国安法》与最新的香港选举制度违反香港基本法原则和《中英联合声明》承诺,香港《国安法》被用来扼杀香港的政治多元化,以及香港法律和国际法保障下的人权和政治自由权利。声明还关切香港泛民主派人士被捕状况。

博雷利还表示欧盟敦促中国履行其国际承诺和法律义务,尊重香港的高度自治和自由人权,停止打压捍卫香港人权自由和民主价值的人士,欧盟将继续加强对香港局势的应对,为此,欧盟将考虑派出高级官员访港。

周四,中国驻欧盟代表团在其官网上发表措辞强烈的声明,为《国安法》及新选举条例辩解,声明还指责欧盟「无视自身人权和制度弊病,一再打著民主、人权和价值观的旗号插手香港事务」,要求欧方停止插手香港事务和针对中国搞小圈子,并警告欧盟将作出反击。

附原信:

The European Union’s position as regards the imposition of the National Security Law and the subsequent electoral changes in Hong Kong has been repeatedly stated, most recently in the statement on 9 June which contains all the elements of our position and response to the situation.

We refute the allegations that that is EU interference in internal Hong Kong affairs. There is a clear international aspect to what is happening in Hong Kong. The Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, registered at the United Nations, is by definition an international agreement, and sets out China’s international commitments as regards Hong Kong’s autonomy under the Basic Law and the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ principle. Further, as the European Union, we are committed to promoting and defending all human rights, the rule of law and democracy both within our borders and worldwide. We have been extremely vocal in our opposition to the imposition of the National Security Law by Beijing, and will continue to speak out whenever the fundamental freedoms and rights of the people of Hong Kong are violated under its implementation.

We also refute the allegation that the EU ignores issues within its borders. As European Commission President von der Leyen said at the 2020 State of the Union address: “Europe is not without issues. But we discuss them publicly. Criticism and opposition are not only accepted but are legally protected. So we must always call out human rights abuses whenever and wherever they occur – be it on Hong Kong or with the Uighurs. We believe in the universal value of democracy and the rights of the individual.”

We thoroughly question the remark made by the Chinese Mission that: “This lawful, justifiable and necessary decision have won the hearts and minds of the people.”. The mass mobilisation of Hongkongers against the imposition of the National Security Law, the electoral changes, and overall crackdown on pro-democracy forces, the stifling of pluralism, and erosion of fundamental freedoms, has been clear for everyone to see. Videos and pictures of hundreds of thousands of people protesting these decisions imposed by China make it clear to any observer what the true situation is, regardless of any attempts to spread information to the contrary. Videos and pictures of the response of the law enforcement authorities to these protests, using violence and arbitrary detention, as well as charges brought against and sentences handed down on prominent pro-democracy figures also tell the true story.
