The Burundian government on Tuesday welcomed a decision by Chinese lawmakers to strengthen legislation to safeguard national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

This is what emerges from a press release made public by the office of the Burundian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ezéchiel Nibigira.

The 13th National People’s Congress of China adopted a decision last Thursday on the establishment and improvement of national security legislation and enforcement mechanisms in the HKSAR.

According to the press release, the Burundian government, concerned with the preservation of national and international security, remains concerned by the acts “of secessionist, subversive or even terrorist nature”, which seriously damage the national security of the HKSAR.

The Burundian government, the text continues, reiterates its constant attachment to the principles of “one indivisible China” and “one country, two systems” implemented to safeguard the rule of law, national sovereignty, security and development interests from China.

Burundi recalled on this occasion that the Charter of the United Nations subscribes to the principle of mutual respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of each member State.

The Burundian government “therefore opposes any interference by external forces in the management of internal affairs” of states in general, and in those of China, in particular the latter’s management of the HKSAR.
