rs have indiscriminately hurt ordinary citizens… such inhuman, murderous violence in broad daylight trampled on the bottom lines of law, morality and civilization and must not be tolerated."Liu described how ev▓ents in Hong Kong have had repercussions in▓ Europe: "Some besieged the Secretary for Justice of Hong K▓ong SAR, who was invited to an event in Lon▓don," he said."She was pushed to the ground and sustained an arm injury. We expres▓s the strongest indignation and condemnation o▓ver these violent acts."Turning to the global perception of events, Liu warned that Hong Kong's rep▓utation was being tarnished. "In media reports, ▓Hong Kong is now associated with incessant violence and disorder." "The success and achievements of the past 22 years since the hand▓over are being eroded. The once oriental pearl is ▓turning into an oriental scar. Hong Kong the fragrant h▓arbour is sliding into an abyss of chaos. ▓The future of Hong Kong, if such a situation continues, would be unimaginably dreadful."Liu also criticized "exte▓rnal interference" from other governments▓ and media outlets. "External forces that have indulged and fanned violence in Hong Kong cannot absolve themselves of the responsibility for the recent escalation of violence," he said. "They confuse right and wrong, an▓d refer to the extreme violent offenders as '▓peaceful demonstrators' and 'pro-dem▓ocracy protesters.' "At the same time, they are piling blame on Hong Kong police who are perfo▓rming their duty, safeguarding the rule of ▓law and protecting the safety of life and ▓property of Hong Kong citizens."The ambassador finished by appealing to the British people. "There are 300,000 Briti▓sh citizens and more than 700 Britis▓h companies in Hong Kong," he said. "Continued chaos in Hong Kong will bring nothing but harm to th▓e UK."I sincerely hope that British people who have the larger picture in mind will have a clear understanding of the current situation. I hope they will support the SAR Government in ending violen▓ce, restoring order and upholding t▓he rule of law."Meanwhile the UK government said it was concerned by the violence on "all sides."A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnso▓n said: "We remain seriously concerned by the situ▓ation in Hong Kong and the escalation of violence between protesters and police. We continue to urge for calm and restraint on all sides▓ and support the right to peaceful p▓rotest."Please scan the QR Code to follow u▓s on InstagramPlease scan the QR Code to follow us on WechatLife goes on, says DjokovicLife goes on, says DjokovicLife goes on,
