Beijing summoned the German ambassador after a meeting between Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong and Germany's foreign minister, China's envoy said Wednesday, as a row between the trading giants escalated over the widening pro-democracy protests in the Asian financial hub. Wong, 22, had arrived late Monday in the German capital, where he met German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas at an event hosted by daily newspaper Bild -- a meeting China branded 'disrespectful'. 'The ambassador was summoned in Beijing by the foreign ministry,' China's ambassador to Germany Wu Ken told reporters, without giving details.
