Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying on Saturday urged the United Kingdom to im亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419论坛
mediately stop interfering in China’s internal affairs and stop making random and inflammatory accusations on Hong Kong.
“It is simply wrong for the British government to directly call Hong Kong’s Chief Executive to exert pressure,” Hua said in an online statement.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419论坛
Hong Kong today is a special administrative region of the People’s Republic o
f China, long gone are the days when it was under British colonial rule, the spokeswoman added.
Noting the UK has no sovereignty, jurisdiction or right of supervision over Hong Kong, Hua said that亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419论坛女神会所
affairs of Hong Kong brook no foreign interference.
According to the Basic Law, the central government shal

adicals. Other protestors are kindhearted citizens who have been misguided and coerced to join.
The anti-China forces both in and out of Hong Kong are the mastermin亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419论坛女神会所

The immediate task for Hong Kong citizens is to stop the viole

China’s State Council, or the cabinet, has issued an overall plan for the new Lingang area of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone.
The new area will be set up to the south of Dazhi River, east of Jinhui Port, and south of X
iaoyangshan Island and Pudong International Airport in Shanghai, says the plan.
The district launched first is to cover an area of 119.5 square kilometers, it says.
According to the plan, the new section will match the standard of the most competitive free trade zones worldwide
and implement opening-up policies and systems with strong global market competitiveness.
The SAR government, in a statement issued at around 6 pm on Sunday, said Hong Kong will descend to a d

China said on Friday it will place sanctions on US companies involved in the lates亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419论坛女神会所
