Chinese ambassador banned from UK Parliament

United Kingdom Parliament members Sir Lindsay Hoyle and Lord John McFall have decided to bar China’s ambassador to the UK Zheng Zeguang from attending an event hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on China.

The decision comes in response to Beijing’s sanctioning of British lawmakers in March for accusations of human rights violations of the Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang area.

“I regularly hold meetings with ambassadors from across the world to establish enduring ties between countries and parliamentarians. But I do not feel it’s appropriate for the ambassador for China to meet on the Commons estate and in our place of work when his country has imposed sanctions against some of our members,” Hoyle said.
