China on Wednesday asked the US to stop issuing orders regarding political reforms in Hong Kong asserting that Washington has no right to interfere in its internal affairs.
Reacting to US Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs Daniel Russel’s remarks about Hong Kong’s political reform and universal suffrage in the chief executive election, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, “Political system development is Hong Kong’s own affair and China’s internal affair.
