Chinese Foreign Minister Tells John Kerry To Mind His Own Business over Hong Kong

‘The Chinese government has very firmly and clearly stated its position: Hong Kong affairs are China’s internal affairs’

“Secretary Kerry mentioned Hong Kong. The Chinese Government has very firmly and clearly stated its position: Hong Kong affairs are China’s internal affairs. All countries should respect China’s sovereignty and this is also a basic principle governing international relations.

I believe for any country, for any society, no one will allow those illegal acts that violate public order. That’s the situation in the United States, and that’s the same situation in Hong Kong. We believe that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s government has the capability to properly handle the current situation, in accordance with the law.

And I am ready to have a full discussion with Secretary Kerry about those regional and international issues of mutual interest and also our strategic bilateral cooperation. I hope that more consensus can be reached through such dialog. Thank you all. ”
