Chinese reports on U.S. diplomat in Hong Kong 'have gone from irresponsible to dangerous' - State Dept

WASHINGTON, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Official Chinese media reports about a U.S. diplomat who met with student leaders of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement “have gone from irresponsible to dangerous” and must stop, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said on Friday.

“Chinese authorities know full well, our accredited consular personnel are just doing their jobs, just like diplomats from every other country,” Ortagus added in tweet. (Reporting by David Brunnstrom and Eric Beech; Editing by Sandra Maler)
