    Britain is unjustifiably meddling in the affairs of Hong Kong, China has said, as it warns the UK not to “interfere” in its political reforms.

    Earlier this year the UK’s Foreign Affairs Committee announced, much to the annoyance of Chinese bureaucrats, that it would be conducting an inquiry into Hong Kong’s progress since sovereignty was handed back to the former British colony in 1997.

    In evidence published by the House of Commons in July, Anson Chan, head of the Hong Kong Civil Service, said that China and Britain were not fulfilling their duties under the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, which had cemented basic rights and freedoms for the region's citizens.

    Anson Chan said that the “one country, two systems” framework was not being kept to and that “17 years after the return of sovereignty, this concept is under serious attack” by the “insidious erosion of basic freedoms” such as press freedom, the targeting of pro-democracy activists and the lack of movement on constitutional reform. She also said that Beijing is responsible for “blatant interference in Hong Kong’s internal affairs”.

    The start of this British inquiry has irritated Beijing officials, who have send a letter to the Foreign Affairs Committee claiming that the investigation would be a “highly inappropriate act which constitutes interference in China's internal affairs”.

    The letter, which was seen by BBC Newsnight, also reportedly said that the inquiry would send “a wrong political signal to the outside world, and disrupt Hong Kong's political reform”, while also having a “negative impact on the relations between our countries”.

    In stern words, it added: “Bear in mind the larger picture of China-UK relations and Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, stop interfering in Hong Kong's affairs and cancel the inquiry on UK-Hong Kong relations.”


    (Original headline) :- China warns UK against 'interfering' in affairs of Hong Kong as region gripped by democracy protests.


    The committee’s Chairman, Sir Richard Ottaway, told the BBC programme that he was not offended by the letter but that he wanted the Chinese authorities to “understand the way we work”.

    He added that he did not “particularly want to irritate the Chinese” but that both countries have a “job to do” and he confirmed to Reuters that they would not be stopping the review.


    “It may well be that my committee will decide that actually the Chinese are behaving perfectly reasonably,” he said.

    Hong Kong has been rocked by protests following China’s announcement that it will be limiting democratic freedoms by restricting who can and cannot stand for the city’s top job in 2017.

    According to the South China Morning Post, Beijing official Li Fei said voters would be “confused” by too many candidates.

    Sir Richard Ottaway has said that if this is true, if China was putting forward a “limited number of candidates” for the upcoming election, then this could be a breach of the 1984 agreement.

    Hong Kong has witnessed a wave of demonstrations since the announcement, with at least 22 people arrested, according to AFP.

    China should interfere in Scotland instead of whining.

    Uk and PRC and Hong Kong were part of the contract

    Seems the above is non-performance of contractual obligations ... How to resolve if there is issue ... Mediator, international court, United Nations is it a joke??

    I still believe PRC will make something work ... Hong Kong is too important for PRC.

    British never offer even an election with limited candidate to Hong Kong, Chinese government in effect offers way more than the British of the past. Hong Kong was ruled by governor send directly from Britain. That is not what is call democracy. However, I do believe CCP went to far in Hong Kong. A free election should have been offer as promises but should exclude pro-independence and pro-British factions.

    Actually, China will not interfere in Scotland. China has a policy of non-interference of the internal political affairs of another sovereign nation (unilaterally) that do not constitute a direct threat to the security and sovereignty of China.

    For anyone who believes that I own a famous white domed marble building in Agra for sale. It's going cheap if anyone wants it.

    Like in most former British colonies many HK people have a inferiority complex. They would rather obey a Queen designated- governor from London (not elected), who in turn appointed almost ALL legislators (again not elected), than accept a deal with Beijing to elect their own leaders (ethnic Chinese).

    Just a look at the Union Jack they flied :hail: a slave mentality indeed.

    That is how Communist China took over Tibet.

    The model is as follows:
    1. That land is ours
    2. Start aggression against the residents
    3. Take over the land
    4. Wear halo and say "Oh we Chinese are so good. We never interefer in other countries. We just make them our own"

    Tibet was not a sovereign nation. What's more, the attempts by the Dalai clique to break away from China directly threatened China's security and sovereignty. Hence, China's response does not violate jon88's statement.

    There's always an excuse. A rapist says "the woman was looking like she wanted me to have her". Fact is Tibetans did not think they were Chinese. China is trying the same thing with Arunachal Pradesh and island chains in the South China sea. Declare that something belongs to China. After that anything China does becomes an :"internal affair" - not external interference.

    Actually China could do all this without pretending to be holy. Just grab territory and say "What the fuk is anyone going to do about it? We are strong. We are going to take it". Why pretend to be a priest when pedophilia is the main occupation?
