Envoy: China against terrorism, discrimination and extremism

Chinese Ambassador Dr Huang Huikang (in red batik shirt) along with his wife made an impromptu visit to Petaling Street to handover mooncakes to various traders. Accompanying them was Hawkers and Petty Traders Association president Datuk Ang Say Tee.

KUALA LUMPUR: China is against those who resort to violence to disrupt public order, said the country's ambassador to Malaysia Dr Huang Huikang. 

"The Chinese government opposes terrorism and any form of discrimination against races and any form of extremism,” he told reporters during his visit to Petaling Street on Friday. 

Dr Huang warned that Beijing would not fear voicing out against incidents which threaten the interests of the country, infringe upon the rights of its citizens in doing business, or disrupt the relationship between Malaysia and China.

During his visit, Dr Huang, his wife, along with other officials from the Chinese embassy presented traders with moon cakes in conjunction with the Mid Autumn Festival. 

He was impressed that Malaysia's Chinatown was not run solely by the Chinese but also comprised of traders of various races. 

"Business is good here. There are many tourists. I am proud to see Chinese traders working closely with Malay and Indian traders in harmony in developing this area," he said. 

He added that it would be sad if the peaceful environment was destroyed by those with questionable intentions, referring to the planned red-shirt rally on Saturday. 

Dr Huang said he was confident that the police would ensure public order. 

On another note, he said the embassy was aware of the terrorist threat at Jalan Alor as well as travel advisories issued by the US and Australian embassies. 

"We will monitor the situation closely," Dr Huang added.
