Since the return of Hong Kong to the motherland, China has been firmly implementing the principles of "one country, two systems," "the people of Hong Kong governing Hong Kong," and a high degree of autonomy, Wang said.王晨说,香港回归以来,国家坚定贯彻“一国两制”、“港人治港”、高度自治的方针。

The practice of "one country, two systems" has achieved unprecedented success in Hong Kong, he said.“一国两制”实践在香港取得了前所未有的成功。

But the increasingly notable national security risks in the HKSAR have become a prominent problem, the vice chairman said, citing activities that have seriously challenged the bottom line of the "one country, two systems" principle, harmed the rule of law, and threatened national sovereignty, security and development interests.同时,香港特别行政区国家安全风险日益凸显。很多行为和活动严重挑战“一国两制”原则底线,严重损害法治,严重危害国家主权、安全、发展利益。

Law-based and forceful measures must be taken to prevent, stop and punish such activities, he noted.必须采取有力措施依法予以防范、制止和惩治。

Article 23 of the Basic Law of the HKSAR stipulates that the HKSAR shall enact laws on its own to prohibit any act of treason, secession, sedition, subversion against the Central People's Government, or theft of state secrets, to prohibit foreign political organizations or bodies from conducting political activities in the HKSAR, and to prohibit political organizations or bodies of the HKSAR from establishing ties with foreign political organizations or bodies.香港基本法第23条规定:“香港特别行政区应自行立法禁止任何叛国、分裂国家、煽动叛乱、颠覆中央人民政府及窃取国家机密的行为,禁止外国的政治性组织或团体在香港特别行政区进行政治活动,禁止香港特别行政区的政治性组织或团体与外国的政治性组织或团体建立联系。”

More than 20 years after Hong Kong's return, however, relevant laws are yet to materialize due to the sabotage and obstruction by those trying to sow trouble in Hong Kong and China at large, as well as external hostile forces, Wang said.然而,香港回归20多年来,由于反中乱港势力和外部敌对势力的极力阻挠、干扰,23条立法一直没有完成。

Considering Hong Kong's situation at present, efforts must be made at the state-level to establish and improve the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security, to change the long-term "defenseless" status in the field of national security, Wang said.在香港目前形势下,必须从国家层面建立健全香港特别行政区维护国家安全的法律制度和执行机制,改变国家安全领域长期“不设防”状况。

This will advance the institutional building to safeguard national security on the course of China's Constitution and the Basic Law of the HKSAR, he said. This will also strengthen the work of safeguarding national security and ensure the steady and enduring growth of the cause of "one country, two systems", he added.在宪法和香港基本法的轨道上推进维护国家安全制度建设,加强维护国家安全工作,确保香港“一国两制”事业行稳致远。
