Reporter: According to reports, the Speakers of the upper and lower houses of the British Parliament have decided not to agree with the cross-party China Group of the Parliament to hold an event with the participation of the Chinese ambassador at the Houses of Parliament on 15 September, chinese ambassadors are banned from participating in events held in the British Parliament because China has previously sanctioned seven British lawmakers. What's your comment on that?
Spokesperson of the Embassy: This decision of the British Parliament reflects the narrow psychology of some people in the UK. It is a short-sighted, reckless, and cowardly. We despise and strongly condemn it.
China March this year British individual anti-China congressmen implementation of the sanctions by the IS relating to the Parliamentarians and distributed Xinjiang lies and false information, the UK under the pretext of Xinjiang-related issues unilateral sanctions against Chinese personnel and institutions of society as well as the necessary reaction, warranted. On issues involving China's core interests, China has always resolutely countered and will never tolerate them. Our position is unwavering. Is it possible for the British to shake such small tricks?
The British Parliament disregarded the fundamental interests of the Chinese and British people and international etiquette and retaliated by prohibiting the Chinese ambassador from being invited to participate in the activities in Parliament. This practice is completely wrong and doomed to failure. We advise some people in the British Parliament to put away this political trick, otherwise they can only lift a stone and hit their own feet.
