4:32 pm
just listen to what china's ambassador to the u.k. lil shalmi said in london on wednesday i'm calling the british government to reflect the consequences of his words and deeds with regard to hong kong i do hope that after his government would realize. the consequences and would refrain from further into hears from furthering damaging their relationship now this in response to a series of tweets and media statements over 3 days from u.k. foreign secretary jeremy hunt in support of the people of hong kong today he responded to those criticisms and issued clarification's i was not supporting the violence what i was saying is the way to deal with that violence is not by repression it is by understanding the root causes of the concerns of the demonstrators that freedoms that they have had for their whole life could be about
4:33 pm
to be undermined by this new extradition rule. but hunt earlier comments had come in for criticism from beijing as well this is what the foreign ministry said we don't hear i have responded to mr hans eroni as remarks in hong kong for 2 straight days. expressing china's strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition i can he however he seems to be indulging in the illusions of faded british colonialism and is obsessed with pointing fingers at other countries affairs in a condescending manner he he can call home. strong words there but what do they all mean from all of this been joined by deborah porter clifford conan in the studio with big welcome now you worked in beijing for a number of you as an attentive very many such press conferences in the foreign ministry headquarters is this sort of language that be heard in this entire water floods unusual it's not unusual this is the classic rhetoric one hears from from
4:34 pm
beijing the focus is always on an internal matter whether it comes to human rights the side china sea any of these international issues that china finds itself in the middle they always focus on internal affairs and how this is it's china's business and they urge other people to to say steer clear of that so i think it's very much it within the in the tone now beyond the internal affairs question ambassador lu in london that press conference that he held he also said that under british rule people in hong kong cannot elect their own representatives they could not elect their own leaders it was britain that appointed governors people could not go out onto the streets to demonstrate and then they accused britain of being potentially hypocritical by talking about democracy in that a tree do the chinese have a point there well the hypocrisy argument is always it's always a slightly difficult one obviously for the british because they run they run the territory the crown colony as it was then using governors as they did elsewhere in
4:35 pm
the british empire and towards the end of british rule in 1907 and they did try to implement more democracy and reforms to make represent greater representation for the hong kong people and i think the british tend to pointed out when when china makes these accusations and i think myself that hypocrisy is probably a strong word given that britain i think was trying to move towards more representation but at the same time it's something that the chinese contrail this is something that has been that they have begat begun playing on for quite some time but this war of words has really picked up steam from. monday when the latest of council was breached by for testers i just like to talk about the timing of this war of words now does this in some way take away the focus from what's actually happening on the streets of hong kong i think so i think the chinese government is in a real quandary here it's in a difficult position to know what to do about what's happening in hong kong. the

chief executive is very much from the beijing side at the same time she's also struggling a little bit with the initial protests which were very peaceful. she was put into a difficult position now that there's violence in terms of the alleged attack it's become easier maybe for beijing to involve itself but at the same time it's much more comfortable in these areas dealing with other governments. be talking about things like internal matters and coming out with this kind of rhetoric that we discussed rather than dealing with the actual newsy gritty of what's going on in hong kong at the moment you might be easier on the international stage but that we've must all struck about jeremy hunt himself he is in a sense for reelection if i can call it that we have to head the tory party and by extension become british prime minister is there potentially more to the motivation here for joining me to bring this issue up in the middle of a tory party leadership campaign but i think that the timing is no coincidence i
4:37 pm
think in fairness that the british foreign minister has been very he's been pretty good on hong kong in terms of standing up for the british side. but at the same time i think he's there is definitely a political dimension to this and if you can show leadership and if you can show strength in dealing with china and in protecting the basic law that after all the tory party was instrumental in drafting with the chinese back in in the run up to the back and i said before i think that i think it could certainly work for him in political terms david graham we just have to wait and see if that does. thank you so much for coming in and breaking bad down for us in iran on the streets of hong kong there's fear things could get worse that's in the words of pro-democracy lawmaker claudie are more this after police arrested more than a dozen people involved in the protests on monday with another demonstration planned for sunday did i met some young hong kong guys who are documenting the
