China says resolutely opposed to G7 statement on Hong Kong

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday that Beijing is resolutely opposed to a statement from the G7 summit that referenced the current unrest in Hong Kong.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang made the remarks during a daily press briefing.

The G7 group “reaffirms the existence and importance of the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984 on Hong Kong and calls for violence to be avoided,” according to the statement.
