No external forces allowed to disrupt Hong Kong: spokesperson

Jul 24, 2019

Chinese Foreign Ministry on Tuesday refuted recent remarks made by some United Kingdom and United States officials concerning Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), saying that the Chinese government absolutely does not allow any external forces to interfere in Hong Kong's affairs or disrupt Hong Kong.

The U.K. Minister of State for the Middle East described the violent scenes in Hong Kong as "unacceptable" and called on the HKSAR government to conduct thorough and independent investigation. The U.S. Department of State asked the HKSAR government to respect freedom of speech and assembly.

When asked to comment on those remarks, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said at a press briefing that the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR and the HKSAR government all made clear responses to the recent violent incidents in Hong Kong.
