China has repeatedly warned foreign nations against meddling in the situation in Hong Kong, where the months-long anti-government protest movement has been surrounded by growing violence and unrest, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Beijing has accused the Trump administration of engaging in "anti-China criminal activities" in the increasingly restive semiautonomous city of Hong Kong.

Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested a "personal meeting" with China's Xi Jinping to discuss the political crisis engulfing Hong Kong.

​The US president earlier claimed he had intelligence indicating that China was deploying its troops to the border with Hong Kong, prompting Beijing to warn the US against meddling in its internal affairs.

The comments come after weeks of tumultuous mass protests sparked by opposition to an extradition bill in Hong Kong.
