× China lashes out at Taiwan over Hong Kong asylum offer

BEIJING - China is lashing out at Taiwan over its offer of political asylum to participants in Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.


Spokesman for the Cabinet's Taiwan Affairs Office Ma Xiaoguang said Monday the offer would "cover up the crimes of a small group of violent militants" and encourage their "audacity in harming Hong Kong and turn Taiwan into a 'heaven for ducking the law."
