UK summons Chinese ambassador over foreign interference allegations

A spokesperson for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) said:

Today, on the instructions of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Chinese Ambassador was summoned to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

The FCDO has unequivocally stated that China’s recent behavior towards the UK, including cyberattacks, reports of espionage links and issuing bounties, is not acceptable.

The summons follows Monday’s announcement that three people have been charged with offenses under the National Security Act as part of an investigation by officers from the Met Police’s counter-terrorism command. The foreign intelligence service targeted by the accusations is that of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
