BEIJING: China has noted US President Trump's comment that Beijing needs to resolve the crisis in Hong Kong on its own, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday (Aug 15).

Ten weeks of increasingly violent confrontations between police and demonstrators have plunged the international business hub into its worst crisis since it reverted from British to Chinese rule in 1997.
