Hong Kong is an inalienable part of China and any form of separatism will be crushed, state media said on Monday, a day after demonstrators gathered at the US consulate to seek help for democracy in the city.

Sunday’s rally in Hong Kong is evidence that outside forces were behind the protests that began in mid-June, and warned demonstrators to “stop testing the patience of the central government”, the China Daily said.

Chinese officials have accused outside powers of trying to harm Beijing by stirring up chaos in Hong Kong over an unpopular bill that would have allowed suspects to be tried in the Communist-controlled courts of China.

Anger over the bill has turned into sometimes violent protests demanding greater freedom for Hong Kong, which returned to China in 1997 under the “one country, two systems formula.

“Hong Kong is an inalienable part of China, and this is the bottom line that no one should challenge, whether protesters or outside forces playing dirty roles”, China Daily said in an editorial.

The demonstrations in Hong Kong are not about rights or democracy. They are the result of outside interference, so that the central government’s own control is not misinterpreted as weakness. Let it be known that any form of separatism will be crushed, the Chinese paper stated.

The rule of law must be affirmed and Hong Kong could pay a higher price if the status quo continues, Xinhua said in a separate comment.

Earlier in August, China sent its strongest warning so far to use its troops on the streets of  the region where Beijing said protests turned to the ‘Color Revolution’ with water cannons and tear gas fired in clashes between police and protesters during a weekend protest -12 in a row.

“It is not just Chinese central government, but also the responsibility to intervene in the event of riots in Hong Kong”, Xinhua news agency said in a statement, echoing the comments of former top leader Deng Xiaoping saying Beijing should act accordingly.

US President Donald Trump on August 13 said, a report from his country’s intelligence agency showed that the Chinese government was moving its troops to the Hong Kong border.
