HONG KONG, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) has said that it firmly opposed a recent U.S. human rights report interfering in Hong Kong affairs and other domestic affairs of China.

"We firmly opposed the United States interfering in Hong Kong affairs and other domestic affairs of China by releasing the report," a spokesperson of the commissioner's office said late Thursday in response to an annual human rights report released earlier this week by the U.S. Department of State.

Since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, the principles of "one country, two systems," "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" with a high degree of autonomy have been successfully implemented and the Chinese central government has acted in strict accordance with the Constitution and the Basic Law, the spokesperson said.

Progress has been continuously made in Hong Kong's cause of human rights, and Hong Kong residents' various rights have been fully respected and guaranteed in accordance with the law, said the spokesperson, adding that this was a fact that cannot be denied by anyone who view the issue without bias.
