Beijing slams US, Japan's 'meddling' in China affairs

Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Xinjiang are China's internal affairs, and the United States and Japan have gone far beyond the scope of normal development of bilateral relations with their comments on those, a representative of Beijing's embassy in Tokyo said on Saturday.

"These matters bear on China's fundamental interests and allow no interference," they noted. "The scheme of the US and Japan goes against the trend of the times and the will of people in the region. Though it is designed to undermine others, it will only end up hurting themselves."

The embassy's comments come after US President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga criticized China's regional policy, particularly its "unlawful maritime claims and activities."
