Hong Kong, Nov 18 (Canadian-Media): As protesters continued to battle Hong Kong police, Foreign countries, China's ambassador to London, Liu Xiaoming, said Monday that United States and Britain, should stop interfering in Hong Kong's internal affairs, media reports said.
The U.S. House of Representatives' adoption of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in support of extreme violent offenders was dismissed by Xiaoming who told reporters that any interference in Hong Kong affairs, which, he said were China's internal affairs.
"Some Western countries have publicly supported extreme violent offenders, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act to blatantly interfere in Hong Kong affairs, which are China's internal affairs," ambassador Liu Xiaoming told reporters and continued, "What is worse certain British politicians even planned to present [an] award to a chief propagandist for Hong Kong independence."
Hong Kong police had started firing rubber bullets and tear gas to stop anti-government protesters -- trapped in the Hong Kong University campus -- armed with petrol bombs and other weapons and stop them from fleeing amid bloody clashes.
"We remain seriously concerned by the situation in Hong Kong, and the escalation of violence between protesters and police," a spokesperson for Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday. "We continue to urge for calm and restraint on all sides and support the right to peaceful protest.
"It is vital that those who are injured are able to receive appropriate medical treatment, and that safe passage is made available for all those who wish to leave the area," Britain's Foreign Office said.
