Beijing, Oct 11 - China Thursday criticised a US report involving the country, and urged the US to stop issuing such groundless remarks against it, Xinhua reported.
Foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei was commenting on the annual report by the US Congressional-Executive Commission on China.
He said China hopes the commission would respect facts, forsake prejudices and stop behaviours and words that interfere with China's internal affairs and harm bilateral ties.
Hong said China puts people first and governs for the people, while protecting and promoting Chinese citizens' rights in accordance with the law, and that China has achieved remarkable progress in this regard.
The US should truly respect and objectively view China's development, and do more things conducive to creating closer mutual trust and cooperation in a responsible way, he said.
Such moves will also be in the fundamental interests of the US, the spokesman said.
He said it was the common cause for China and the US to build a cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit and to shape a new type of relationship between them.
