China says Hong Kong matters purely an internal affair

Beijing, China demanded that the United States stops interfering in Hong Kong’s affairs, after the US voiced concern over extradition laws.

“Hong Kong matters are purely a Chinese internal affair,” said Geng Shuang, Spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Tuesday.

The US said on Monday it was “gravely concerned” about proposed amendments to Hong Kong laws that would allow suspects to be extradited to Beijing, and warned that such a move could jeopardize Hong Kong’s autonomy.
