Chinese Foreign Ministry earlier warned the UK of the consequences over allegations of "total interference" and "irresponsible remarks" regarding Hong Kong affairs and China's domestic issues.
China has warned Britain to stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs or face "consequences," according to the Sputnik newspaper, June 6, 2020.
Chen Wen, the first minister and staff member of the Chinese Embassy in London, told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the country had to give up its "colonial status".
"We believe Hong Kong-born Hong Kong people are Chinese," said Chen Wen on BBC World. There will be consequences, for sure. ”
The official later retracted the statement, rejecting her statement, which was linked to threats, and stressed that it was the UK's visa scheme for the Hong Kong people that was the real threat.
