HONG KONG, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) — Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Carrie Lam and Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR Luo Huining on Sunday visited the Hong Kong police headquarters and Tsim Sha Tsui Police Station, and greeted the police officers ahead of the Chinese New Year.
Police officers have done tremendous work over the past year to stop violence and fight the COVID-19 pandemic, and have shouldered the vital responsibility of safeguarding national security since the national security law in the HKSAR took effect in late June last year, Lam said.
As the police are committed to protecting the safety and health of Hong Kong residents, they will have the support of the general public, she said.
During the visit, Luo spoke highly of the hard efforts the police officers have made to protect the safety of ordinary people and restore peace and order in Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong police have developed into a strong and trustworthy force safeguarding Hong Kong’s stability and national security, Luo said, adding that no matter what difficulties are, the motherland is always the firm backing of them.
Commissioner of Police of the HKSAR government Chris Tang Ping-keung said the police will continue to make all-out efforts to safeguard national security and Hong Kong’s stability in the future. Enditem
