The Chinese Consulate in Manchester dragged peaceful demonstrators into the building and brawled them into a diplomatic incident, but the Chinese Foreign Ministry still denied attacking demonstrators. The consul General involved, Zheng Xiyuan, continued to deny attacking people in an interview with British television, but when pressed admitted to pulling the hair of the attacked demonstrators. But it was his duty to uphold the dignity of his country and its leader.

In the “sky” in the British time yesterday (19) in an interview released late late at night, there are straight out of the consulate to play “day wu of the communist party of China” trail of the consul general of Zheng, denied the attack anyone, also didn’t let his colleagues call anyone, refers to is the demonstrators beat him. The reporter then pointed out that his statement was wrong, pointing out that the footage showed Chung pulling the protester’s hair; Jeong said, it was because the man abused (my) country and my leader, and I thought it was my responsibility (to pull his hair). He added that any diplomat in such a situation should do so to protect the dignity of the country and its people.
He added that the situation was urgent and that he felt his colleague’s “life was in danger” and he just wanted to control the situation and separate him from him.
Zheng Xiyuan also defended the consulate staff’s behavior, pointing out that the incident originated from the demonstrators’ offensive exhibits and words, which were unacceptable. He had asked them to be removed, but was refused.

According to footage circulating online, Zheng and some consulate staff walked out of the building, with Zheng kicking a banner, while others fought physically with demonstrators.
China’s Foreign Ministry had previously denied the incident, accusing “troublemakers of illegally entering” the consulate. However, the CCTV footage of the consulate was later released, which clearly showed that the consulate staff dragged a demonstrator into the consular area, and then 7 to 8 people beat up the demonstrator and even beat him on the ground, while Zheng Xiyuan counteraccused the demonstrator of kicking his colleague after he fell to the ground.

One protester, surnamed Chan, a Hong Kong transplant to Manchester, also held a press conference yesterday to recall the attack,describing the consulate staff’s behavior as barbaric, as they pushed him against the iron gates, punched and kicked HIM, but he could not hold on and was pushed to the ground. He thought he was going to die.

The attack on a peaceful protester at the opening ceremony of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on May 16 has aroused heated debate in the UK. At the request of many members of Parliament, the British Foreign Office summoned Yang Xiaoguang, the Chinese Charge d ‘Affaires in the UK, on May 18 to express concern over the incident and demand that China respect British law. However, China continues to deny hitting people. Hong Kong residents in Britain plan to hold a rally next Sunday to protest.
