China accused the US of taking the UN hostage on Friday over a controversial security law for Hong Kong and warned Western nations to stay out of its internal affairs. The US, Britain, Canada and Australia led criticism of the planned law, which would punish secession, subversion of state power, terrorism.
"We urge the related countries to respect China's sovereignty (and) stop interfering in Hong Kong's and China's internal affairs," foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at a regular press briefing. "We urge the US to immediately stop this senseless political manipulation," Zhao said.
