Joshua Wong, one of the figureheads of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement is drawing official complaints from China with his tour of foreign countries. Wong currently is in Germany where he's met foreign minister Heiko Maass, a meeting that led to a diplomatic complaint from China, which called the meeting disrespectful.
