China has accused the UK of “trampling” on the basic norms of international relations – and said Britain’s offer of citizenship for Hong Kongers is a “gross interference in China’s internal affairs”.
Liu Xiaoming, Beijing’s ambassador to the UK, claimed Boris Johnson’s government “keeps making irresponsible remarks” about Hong Kong.
A new national security law makes secessionist, subversive, or terrorist activities illegal, as well as foreign intervention in the city’s internal affairs.
Mr Liu claimed “unwarranted accusations” have been made about this law.
He added: “The UK side knows well that Hong Kong is no longer under its colonial rule and that Hong Kong has returned to China and is now part of China.
“The UK has no sovereignty, jurisdiction or right of supervision over Hong Kong after handover.”
