Q: According to media reports, a British MP was denied a Chinese entry visa for his expression of support for “Occupy Central” in Hong Kong. As a result, a delegation of British MPs cancelled its planned visit to China. What is China’s comment on that?
A: You must be referring to the China-UK Leadership Forum. The China-UK Leadership Forum is an important platform for China-UK exchanges and mutual learning. China welcomes British political leaders who want to contribute to the development of China-UK relations to attend the forum and generate positive energy for the bilateral ties. It is regrettable that the forum is unable to take place as scheduled likely due to the reasons of an individual. We hope the UK side will do more to enhance China-UK mutual trust and move China-UK relations forward.
