The frenzy in the Western media over the official stance of the Chinese government regarding the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Hong Kong inviting a known separatist as guest speaker at a luncheon is contrived and ideologically motivated.

The official statement issued by the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the FCC announced its accommodating gesture toward an advocate of Hong Kong separatism was not only justified but also necessary, as it would have sent the wrong message if it said nothing.

Chan Ho-tin, the guest invited by the club to give a speech, is the head of the Hong Kong National Party, an unregistered political group pursuing “Hong Kong independence”, that is connected to and colluding with other separatist forces and openly seeking to “damage Chinese interests”.
