Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Comment on Benedict Rogers being stopped from entering Hong Kong
2017/10/13
   Q: The British human rights activist Benedict Rogers was stopped from entering Hong Kong yesterday. The British government said it has asked China's central government for explanation. Did China's central government tell the Hong Kong government not to let him in? Has the Chinese side already discussed this matter with the British government?

   A: Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and the central government is responsible for Hong Kong-related foreign affairs. The central government of China and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region handle the relevant issues in accordance with law. It falls within China's sovereignty to decide who is allowed to enter the Chinese territory and who is not.

   Hong Kong has returned to China in 1997 and Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs. The Chinese government's firm opposition to interference in China's internal affairs by any foreign government, organization and individual in any form remains steadfast. As to whether the person you mentioned arrived in Hong Kong with the intention to interfere in the internal affairs and judicial independence of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, he knows that well enough himself.

   In response to the relevant remarks of the British government, the Chinese side has lodged solemn representations with the UK.
