China tells UK to avoid meddling in its affairs referring to city

112

China has urged uk to avoid meddling in its affairs after reports that Britain was poised to suspend an extradition treaty for Chinese-ruled city.

Foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin made the remark during a daily media briefing, adding that China would react resolutely to actions within the former British colony of port that interfere in China’s internal affairs.

Hong Kong returned to China in 1997.

Britain on Monday suspend its extradition treaty with port in an escalation of its dispute with China over its introduction of a national security law for the previous British colony, newspapers reported.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who on Sunday accused China of gross human rights violations, will announce the suspension of the treaty in parliament, the days and Daily Telegraph newspapers said, citing sources.

Education Minister Gavin Williamson declined to touch upon the reports prior Raab’s statement but he said Britain was always able to speak out when it disagreed with Beijing.

“We want to figure with China and that we always will want to figure with China – it’s a very important player on the planet stage. But we shouldand can always, speak out where we predict they’re doing things that are wrong,” he told Sky News.

Asked about the reports in Beijing on Monday, Wenbin had urged Britain to “stop going further down the incorrect path”.

Any locomote extradition would be another nail within the coffin of what then Prime Minister David Cameron in 2015 cast as a “golden era” of ties with China, the world’s second-largest economy.

But London has been dismayed by a crackdown in metropolis, which returned to Chinese rule out 1997, and also the perception that China didn’t tell the full truth over the coronavirus outbreak.

Last week Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei Technologies equipment to be purged completely from Britain’s 5G network by the tip of 2027.

China has accused Britain of pandering to the us.

Britain says the new security law breaches the guarantees of freedoms, including an independent judiciary, that have helped keep Hong Kong one in all the world’s most vital trade and financial centers since 1997.
