Police demonstrate a water cannon equipped truck at the police tactical unit compound in Fanling, Hong Kong, China, today.

The senior official reiterated Trump's remark that it was a matter between Hong Kong and China, "with the understanding that 'they're looking for democracy and I think most people want democracy'".

The US side has frequently made irresponsible remarks on Hong Kong affairs, which confused black from white and incited troubles, Hua said.

The remarks came as Hua Chunying, a spokesperson with the Chinese Foreign Ministry, responded to a query about the "color revolution" label that Hong Kong has tended to wear recently. "Freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly are core values that we share with Hong Kong; these freedoms must be vigorously protected".

However, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Political Science Professor Dixon Sing Ming asserted the armored vehicles' presence is a blatant "psychological warfare tactic", meant to thin out protester morale and numbers in Hong Kong.

Last week, the US State Department sharply criticised reports in official Chinese media about a US diplomat who met with student leaders of the Hong Kong protests.

On Monday, demonstrators staged another sit-in at Hong Kong's global airport, chanting "an eye for an eye" amid a public outcry over the heavy-handed police response to anti-government protests over the weekend.

China said the anti-government protests that have roiled the city through two summer months had begun to show "sprouts of terrorism".
