Reuters – The Hong Kong government issued a stern warning on Wednesday reiterating that foreign legislatures should not interfere in any form in the internal affairs of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) after some Hong Kong people made “serious and unfounded allegations” on recent violent protests in Hong Kong.
An HKSAR government spokesman also expressed deep regret over their action.
On Tuesday, some protest leaders appealed to the United States Congress for a Hong Kong-related bill at a hearing in Washington. On Wednesday, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a press conference with them to back the bill that calls for evaluations of whether Hong Kong still meets the conditions of a 1992 U.S. law granting it special economic status.
On Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang also said that “We urge the U.S. and other relevant parties not to interfere in China’s affairs.”
