BEIJING, July 2 (Xinhua) -- China firmly opposes some countries interference in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Tuesday.

Spokesperson Geng Shuang said the violent act of storming the Legislative Council (LegCo) Complex in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Monday constituted serious violations of the rule of law and endangered social order.

He said China strongly condemned the violent act and firmly supported the HKSAR government and police to deal with the incident in accordance with the law.

Geng said that Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, and Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs.

"We express our strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to relevant countries' interference in Hong Kong affairs," said Geng, and asked countries concerned to speak and act cautiously, not to send any misleading signals and not to make any wrong moves.
