China asks foreign firms to respect sovereignty after Marriott gaffe


Photo: ReutersBeijing: China on Friday asked foreign companies investing in the country to “respect” its sovereignty and territorial integrity as it ordered a probe after a leading US-based hotel chain listed Tibet and Hong Kong as “countries”. The options included Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. “I should stress that Hong Kong, Taiwan and Tibet are parts of China. “China welcomes foreign companies to invest and operate in China but they in the meanwhile should respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China, respect our laws and regulations, as well as the feelings of the Chinese people,” Lu said. Former British colony Hong Kong and former Portuguese colony Macau are ruled as Special Administrative Regions (SAR) by China.
