"The Chinese Central Government and the HKSAR Government have always dealt with entry and exit affairs in acoordance with the law. Allowing or blocking anyone to enter the country is China's sovereign power," China's Ministry of Foreigh Affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a routine press briefing Monday in response to the refusal of entry of xxxxxx Roth.
Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch, said that he was blocked from entering Hong Kong.
Geng pointed out that numerous facts and pieces of evidence have shown that some non-governmental organizations, using various methods, support anti-government rioters in Hong Kong, strongly abet them to engage in extremely violent crimes, and incite "Hong Kong Independence" separatist activities.
"They bear major responsibility for the current chaos in Hong Kong. These organizations ought to be sanctioned and must pay for what they have done," said Geng.
