China warns UK against interfering in Hong Kong's affairs

China has warned the United Kingdom against interfering in Hong Kong's affairs, after the former colonial power promised sanctuary to locals who may flee the city, if a security law is passed.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian at a regular news briefing in Beijing, accused the UK of having a colonial mentality with its historical links to Hong Kong stemming from "aggressive and unequal treaties".
