China slams British MPs’ attempt to visit Hong Kong

China on Monday explained its refusal to allow British lawmakers to visit Hong Kong and urged them not to interfere in Hong Kong's affairs.

"The Chinese central government and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region have told Britain several times that they resolutely opposed the so-called delegation of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee going to Hong Kong for a so-called investigation and asked for the visit to be canceled," said Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a regular press briefing.

Hua was responding to a question regarding remarks made by the chairman of the British House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee who said China had acted in an overtly confrontational manner by refusing to allow them to visit the former British territory.

Hua said if certain British lawmakers were determined to travel to Hong Kong, that would be genuinely overt confrontational move and not beneficial for Sino-British ties.

"China has many times expressed its firm opposition to any foreign government, organization or person's interference in HK affairs, which are China's internal affairs," she added.
