From BBC News:
China has accused foreign diplomats of meddling in its internal affairs, after some were critical of the trial of prominent Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.
The country’s foreign ministry urged those who had expressed concerns about the trial to respect its legal process.
Spokeswoman Jiang Yu said the criticism was a “gross interference” in China’s internal affairs.
Dissident Liu Xiaobo is on trial for “inciting subversion of state power”. A verdict is expected on Friday.
