BEIJING -- China on Friday rebuked U.S. Vice President Mike Pence's criticisms over its treatment of the Muslim Uighur minority, stressing that it will not tolerate foreign intervention on domestic issues such as Hong Kong.

Pence "intentionally misrepresented China's social system, human rights and religious conditions, and wantonly criticized China's domestic and foreign policies," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said at a press briefing, adding that his remarks "are full of political bias and lies."
