China lodges stern representations with UK over Hong Kong comments

BEIJING (Reuters) - China lodged stern representations with the United Kingdom on Wednesday over its foreign secretary’s remarks on Hong Kong.

China’s foreign ministry spokesman said that Britain had no jurisdiction or supervision over the city, and that any threat to the city’s stability and prosperity comes from foreign forces.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Tuesday that China is destroying the “jewel” of Hong Kong with its crackdown.
