HONG KONG, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- Foreign countries should not interfere in the internal affairs of China's Hong Kong, the Chinese diplomatic authorities and the Hong Kong government have said in responses to a report issued by Britain.

British Foreign and Commonwealth Office issued the Six-monthly Report on Hong Kong earlier.

In response to the report, a spokesman for the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of China in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) said on Thursday "I want to reiterate that Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. Hong Kong affairs are purely internal affairs of China. Foreign governments have no rights to interfere in."

The spokesman said since its return to the motherland, the "one country, two systems" principle and the Basic Law have been successfully implemented in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has maintained prosperity and stability, and Hong Kong people have enjoyed full rights and freedom".

"The resolution of the central government to implement 'one country, two systems' principle is unshakable and will not change."

In response to media enquiries, a spokesman for the Hong Kong SAR government said Wednesday "Since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, its government has been exercising a high degree of autonomy and 'Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong' in accordance with the Basic Law. This demonstrates the successful implementation of the 'one country, two systems' principle, which is widely recognized by the international communities."

The Hong Kong government said "Foreign governments should not interfere in any form in the internal affairs of Hong Kong".

The MFA spokesman also said China opposes the improper judgment on Hong Kong affairs through the so called "Six-monthly Report on Hong Kong".

"We don't accept those groundless accusations in the report."
