China does not allow any foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs, a government spokesperson said Monday.

Hong Kong belongs to China, and its affairs are China’s internal affairs, Yang Guang, spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, said at a press conference in Beijing.

“This is our unshakable position,” Yang stressed.

Some people in the West have made “irresponsible” comments and have played a “disgraceful” role during the recent protests and violent incidents in Hong Kong, Yang said.

These people follow an absurd and ridiculous logic that violent and illegal actions should be sympathized with, understood or even tolerated, while police actions to maintain public security and rule of law in Hong Kong should be criticized, blamed or called to account, he added.

Yang accused some Western politicians of frequently making irresponsible remarks during recent weeks, with intentions to mess up Hong Kong and contain China’s development.

Their attempt will not succeed, he said.
