BEIJING, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- 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.

"We have just celebrated the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return. Over the past 20 years, Hong Kong has continued enjoying prosperity and stability, maintaining its characteristics and advantages, and has made remarkable achievements in various areas under the principle of 'one country, two systems'," said Hua.

"We always firmly oppose the UK government's so-called six-monthly report to parliament on Hong Kong," said Hua.
