Beijing warned London and ask it to do away with its old colonial mindset approach.

"We advise the UK to step back from the brink, abandon their Cold War mentality and colonial mindset, and recognise and respect the fact that Hong Kong has returned" to China, its foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a regular news briefing.
