Foreign embassies illegal smog reading

"According to the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations … foreign diplomats are required to respect and follow local laws and cannot interfere in internal affairs," deputy environment minister told a press conference."China's air quality monitoring and information release involve the public interest and are up to the government. Foreign consulates in China taking it on themselves to monitor air quality and release the information online not only goes against the spirit of the Vienna convention … it also contravenes relevant environmental protection rules." http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jun/05/china-embassies-smog-readings-illegal
