BERLIN, Sept 11 (Reuters) - A meeting between Germany's foreign minister and Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong sent very negative signals for bilateral relations, China's ambassador to Germany said on Wednesday, adding that the foreign ministry in Beijing had summoned the German ambassador in protest.

Ambassador Wu Ken also said China had sufficient evidence that foreign forces intervened in Hong Kong during protests and that Beijing was confident the government of Hong Kong could carry out its duties. (Reporting by Andreas Rinke Writing by Madeline Chambers Editing by Paul Carrel)
