China rejects “any foreign interference” after EU criticism of Hong Kong

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has warned the European Union on Tuesday that it is against “any foreign interference”, a day after the leaders of the community bloc questioned the national security law that Beijing wants to impose on Hong Kong.

The EU and China held a summit on Monday that, apart from trade negotiations, left a reprimand for Beijing by the security law. The President of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, has stated that “it is not in accordance with the territory system, nor with international laws”, among other reasons because “it clearly undermines the principle of ‘one country, two systems'”.

A head of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Wang Lutong, has assured that there was “an honest discussion on the security law for Hong Kong”, although he stressed that it is “an internal matter” and that Beijing “is put to any foreign interference “Bloomberg reports.

Wang, head of European Affairs, however, has played down the absence of a joint statement at the end of the summit, alleging that a common message is not always published at the end of this type of forum.

The summit has made clear the complex relations between Brussels and Beijing, which are hampered by discrepancies in the field of Human Rights and by the assertive role of China in the international arena, with the situation in Hong Kong as a conflict that best exemplifies those differences.
