On December 21, the official twitter of the Norwegian Foreign Ministry made improper remarks on the recent election for the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong SAR. The Embassy Spokesperson’s response is as follows:

The election for the seventh-term Legislative Council of the Hong Kong SAR was smoothly held recently. It represents a successful practice to comprehensively implement the new electoral system in the Hong Kong SAR, which will reinforce good and effective governance in the Hong Kong SAR and lay a solid foundation for Hong Kong’s long-lasting peace and development.

Improving Hong Kong’s electoral system is a necessary step to maintain Hong Kong’s democracy and rule of law, ensure the full and faithful implementation of the policy of One Country, Two Systems, and to safeguard Hong Kong’s enduring prosperity and stability. It has gained wide support from the Hong Kong citizens. We urge the Norwegian side to abide by international law and the basic norms governing international relations, embrace truths and facts on Hong Kong-related affairs and make objective and fair judgments.
