China on Thursday rebuked Britain for hyping up the British National Overseas (BNO) passport issue to interfere in Hong Kong affairs.

“The British side, in breach of its promise, has chosen to obstinately and repeatedly hype up the BNO issue to interfere in Hong kong affairs and China’s internal affairs,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a press briefing when asked to comment on Britain’s move to accept citizenship applications from BNO-eligible HK residents beginning Jan. 31.
