After the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab suspended the extradition treaty on Monday, China has warned Britain that they will “bear the consequences.”
A Chinese embassy spokesman to the UK, warned on Tuesday that the UK will “bear the consequences if it insists on going down the wrong road.”
He added, “Now the UK side has gone even further down the wrong road in disregard of China’s solemn position and repeated representations.
“It once again contravened international law and the basic norms governing international relations and blatantly interfered in China’s internal affairs in an attempt to disrupt the implementation of the National Security Law for Hong Kong SAR and undermine the city’s prosperity and stability.
“China urges the UK side to immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs, which are China’s internal affairs, in any form.
“The UK will bear the consequences if it insists on going down the wrong road.”
The Chinese ambassador to the UK Liu Xiaoming hit back on Monday morning, and said it would be “totally wrong” to impose these sanctions on officials.
Speaking to the BBC Xiaoming warned, “If the UK goes that far to impose sanctions on any individuals in China, China will certainly make a resolute response to it.
“I think the UK should have its own independent foreign policy rather than dance to the tune of the Americans like what happened to Huawei.”
