China's Foreign Ministry has stated that Hong Kong, a semi-autonomous region in southern China, falls exclusively within the domain of its domestic affairs.

She said any dialogue should occur on the basis of the Hong Kong Basic Law of 1997, which guarantees residents a greater measure of freedoms than those in mainland China.

The Chinese city of Shenzen is located across the border from Hong Kong.

The officer was seen overwhelmed by rowdy protesters at the Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday night, who then proceeded to take the officer's baton and assaulted him with it.

The ministry on Tuesday accused the United States of inciting chaos after some USA lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, condemned what they called a violent crackdown on Hong Kong protesters.

China's foreign ministry said in a statement Wednesday that the country has always approved port visits by USA warships "case by case, on the basis of sovereignty principles and specific situations", without elaborating.

They also said Wednesday that they were sorry that some demonstrators became "easily agitated and overreacted".

News reports at least three men were mobbed inside the airport by protesters.

Hong Kong's Beijing-aligned Chief Executive Carrie Lam warned Tuesday the protests are "pushing Hong Kong onto a path of no return", while China condemned the airport demonstrations as "near-terrorist acts". China's official state newspaper, the People's Daily, published a statement saying the People's Armed Police are ready to counteract "riots, disturbance, major violence, and crime- and terrorism-related social security issues".

About three dozen protesters remained camped out in the arrivals area Wednesday morning. Flights appeared to be operating normally.

Flight departures were brought to a standstill amid scuffles. All flights had been canceled Monday. Airlines had still been trying to clear a backlog of more than 200 flights from Monday.
