Updated: 2005-10-13 10:53

China has rejected a U.S. report criticizing the country's human and religious rights as a distorted attack and meddling in its internal affairs.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan expressed China's "resolute opposition" to the report by the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China released on Tuesday.

Kong said the report to the U.S. Congress and the president distorted facts, continued to attack China on human rights, religion, Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong and women's rights, and disregarded the country's achievements.

"The report wantonly interferes in China's internal affairs and we express resolute opposition to it," Kong said in a statement on the Foreign Ministry Web site.

China has maintained sustained, fast and healthy economic development and people of all ethnic groups enjoyed their full legal rights and basic freedoms, Kong said.

He suggested U.S. officials and lawmakers focus more on the affairs of their own country and contribute more to mutual understanding and cooperation between China and the United States.
