Hong Kong is part of China's territory and Hong Kong affairs fall within China's internal affairs, Wang stressed during an interview with Xinhua.
"It is certainly something that we can achieve together," he said.
BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that gross interference in Hong Kong affairs undermines "one country, two systems."
A similar executive order has also been issued for WeChat, a messaging and social media app owned by Chinese tech giant Tencent.
With the help of advanced Chinese equipment and 50,000 diagnostics kits, so far the new lab has tested some 28,000 samples. Approximately 20 percent of them were positive, Mahdi said.
Unfortunately, seven members of the lab staff have been infected by COVID-19, Mahdi said, "but fortunately they all returned to work after recovery."
In the meantime, China will firmly defend its sovereignty, security and development interests, because this is a legitimate right inherent in China being an independent sovereign state, Wang stressed.
In a minus-80 degree Celsius freezer Mahdi and his colleagues are saving all positive cases in the lab for future research and testing.
"We hope these treaties could continue," he said. Enditem
