Xi Jinping goes to Macau on the 20th anniversary of the administration transition
The Chinese President will go to Macau to participate in the 20th anniversary of the transition of Macau’s administration from Portugal to China in December, according to a South China Morning Post newspaper.
Guangdong security chief Li Chunsheng has also announced the establishment of a police communication centre to be set up in October in Qiao Island, Zhuhai, near Macao.
This communication centre will handle all operational and security details during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Macau, Li Chunsheng said, quoted by the South China Morning Post (SCMP).
The official also recalled that this year is “a politically significant year“.
“Hostile forces within China have long marked this year as an important moment to implement their plan – which is a vain attempt – to overthrow our system.”
This year, in addition to the 20th anniversary of the transfer of the administration of the territory of Portugal to China, the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China is also celebrated, as well as “the anniversary of a series of incidents, occurred 20, 30 and 10 years ago, ” he said, without naming them.
In 1989, initiated by students at Beijing University, the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy movement was crushed by the military on the night of June 3 to 4, 1989, when military tanks were sent to end seven weeks of protests.
The exact number of dead people remains a state secret, but the “Mothers of Tiananmen,” a non-governmental association made up of women who lost their children at that time, have already identified more than 200.
In 1999, the Chinese Communist Party banished the Falun Gong religious cult from the country as an evil cult.
“We need to resolutely defend the political security of the country,” said the Guangdong official, adding that “among all types of security, political security is the most prominent and its two essential parts are the security of the socialist system and the security of the regime of the Chinese Communist Party. “
