China on Friday urged the United Kingdom to stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs after the UK government released its latest six-monthly report on Hong Kong.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks at a routine news briefing, saying that Hong Kong affairs are China's domestic affairs and no foreign country has the right to interfere.

"Since the return of Hong Kong, the principles of 'one country, two systems' and 'Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong' as well as Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy have been comprehensively implemented," Hua said, adding Hong Kong residents enjoy every right and freedom they are entitled to in accordance with the law.

"We have expressed strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to the UK government's so-called six-monthly report on Hong Kong. We urge the UK to face reality and stop releasing such reports as well as interfering in Hong Kong affairs," said Hua.
