Beijing has expressed its discontent with the European Union over its statements regarding controversial amendments to the extradition law in Hong Kong, which sparked mass protests across the semi-autonomous territory earlier in the week, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Thursday.

“The Chinese side expresses its strong discontent and resolute protest against the irresponsible EU statements on amendments to the extradition law … We hope that the European Union will treat the legal process of making amendments objectively and stop interfering in the internal affairs of Hong Kong in any form,” Geng said at a briefing.
