"China hopes the process of Brexit can be steady and orderly, and China's established policy on promoting China-Britain and China-EU relations will not change," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying during a regular briefing Wednesday.
"China has noticed that there are still some disagreements in Britain as well as between Britain and the EU on the Brexit," Hua said, noting that a stable, open and developing Britain and European Union are in line with the interest of all parties.
China will not make any comment on the no-confidence vote in the British government, she said, adding "it is Britain's internal affairs." 
Britain's parliament on Tuesday resoundingly rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal, triggering a no-confidence vote in her government and plunging its plans to leave the EU into further disarray.
