Liu Xiaoming angrily rejected Britain’s calls for calm in Hong Kong amid clashes between activists and police and warned the protestors would not be allowed to drag Hong Kong into a “dangerous abyss”. He told a press conference in London there must be justice “no matter who they are and however they hard they try and whitewash their actions”.
Mr Liu said: “If anyone in this country questions this point let me ask them this, would the UK allow extremists to storm the Palace of Westminster and damage its facilities and get away with it?
“Would the UK give permission for attacking police officers with lethal weapons or set fire to police stations without any punishment?
“Would the UK allow so-called pro-democracy rioters to occupy the airport, obstruct traffic, disturb social order or threaten the safety and people’s life and property?
“Aren’t all these regarded as crimes in the UK?”
