A stable, open and developing Britain and European Union are in line with the interest of all parties, and China hopes that the process of Brexit can be steady and orderly, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Wednesday.

Hua made the remarks at a daily press briefing in response to a question on Brexit.

The British parliament on Tuesday voted to overwhelmingly reject the Brexit deal. Members of Parliament voted 432-202 against the Brexit deal reached between the British government and the European Union.

"China attaches great importance to Brexit," said Hua, adding that China has noticed there are some differences in Britain as well as between Britain and the EU on the Brexit.

China's established policy on promoting China-Britain and China-EU relations will not change, she said.

According to reports, following the vote, Britain's main opposition Labor Party presented a motion of no confidence in the government.

Hua said this is Britain's internal affairs, and the Chinese side will not make any comment.
