China slammed Japan on Monday for allowing the World Uyghur Congress to host meetings in Japan despite China's objections. During a news conference in Beijing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei stressed China's displeasure over Tokyo's interference in the country's internal affairs.

Hong Lei, Spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry, said, "China is strongly displeased with Japan for ignoring China's firm objections and obstinately allowing the World Uyghur Congress to host meetings in Japan. The World Uyghur Congress has strong ties with terrorist groups. It is an anti-China group. Xinjiang affairs concern China's internal affairs. They are not to be interfered with by any external force. We request that Japan respect China's demands and take measures to mollify the repercussions of this, and maintain the China-Japan relationship."
