China’s Response to the “Five Eyes Alliance” Statement Concerning Hong Kong: Watch Out for Your Eyes

At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China on the 19th, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian answered questions from reporters regarding the “Five Eyes Alliance” statement on Hong Kong, China-Australia relations, and U.S. documents on China.

A reporter asked: The foreign ministers of the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom issued a joint statement requesting the Chinese government to reconsider its actions against Hong Kong legislators and immediately restore the relevant membership qualifications. How does China respond to this?

Zhao Lijian said, “The Chinese never cause trouble, nor are they afraid of trouble. Regardless of whether they have ‘five eyes’ or ‘ten eyes,’ as long as they dare to harm China’s sovereignty, security and development interests, they should watch out for their eyes, or they will be pricked blind.”
