China will 'not allow' G-20 to discuss Hong Kong: senior official

Demonstrations 'purely an internal affair,' Beijing insists

BEIJING -- The Chinese government is determined to keep the recent demonstrations in Hong Kong off the table at the Group of 20 summit in Japan later this week, a senior Foreign Ministry official indicated Monday.

"What I can tell you for sure is that the G-20 will not discuss the Hong Kong issue," said Zhang Jun, assistant minister of foreign affairs, in response to a question at a press briefing here.
