PARKER ZHENG CHINA DAILY HONG KONG - The Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region strongly disapproved and firmly rejected a misleading article published in the Washington Post by US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The article attacked the national security law in the Hong Kong police and the Chinese government's policies towards Hong Kong and the Hong Kong police's legitimate law enforcement actions towards those suspected of endangering national security.
A spokesman for the office said that Nancy Pelosi should immediately withdraw her 'black hand' from Hong Kong affairs and stop using Hong Kong to contain China.

The rule of law is the cornerstone of Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and Hong Kong society adheres to the rule of law.
The police in Hong Kong are accused of colluding with foreign countries or overseas forces to endanger China's national security, and Hong Kong police's law enforcement actions are acts of justice that help safeguard national security and rule of law in Hong Kong, which brooks no external interference, the spokesperson said.
The United States has a poor record in democracy and human rights, and its self-proclaimed beacon of democracy has collapsed, the spokesperson said, with its legal index ranking behind the HKSAR.
Since the implementation of the national security law in the HKSAR, Hong Kong's public order has been restored, Hong Kong's development back on the right track, the right and freedoms of Hong Kong residents protected, and foreign investors in Hong Kong enjoy a more safe, stable and predictable business environment, according to the spokesperson.
Nancy Pelosi, who once called the black violence in Hong Kong a beautiful sight but strongly condemned the thugs in the Capitol riots in the United States, has been in Hong Kong affairs again under the pretext of human rights and freedom, which exposed her double standards and hypocrisy on Hong Kong affairs, the spokesperson said.
The historical trend of Hong Kong righting the wrongs can't be stopped, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation can't be stopped, according to the spokesperson.
The office urges Nancy Pelosi and other US politicians to respect China's sovereignty, abide by international law and the basic norms governing international relations, and immediately stop supporting anti-China forces in Hong Kong and interfere in China's internal affairs, including Hong Kong affairs.
Any act of intervention and sabotage will prove a flop, the spokesperson said. This is a historical law that no one can change.
