BEIJING, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson on Friday again called on the U.S. side to immediately stop intervening in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks after a U.S. State Department spokesperson Thursday denounced some media reports that disclosed personal information of a U.S. diplomat who met with "Hong Kong independence" activists.

Hua said the U.S. State Department spokesperson should first reflect on her own words and deeds and should not use media reports to attack or blame other countries' governments.

The U.S. side has frequently intervened in Hong Kong affairs, which will inevitably lead to resolute opposition and strong indignation of the Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots, said Hua.

She also urged the U.S. side to abide by international law and basic norms governing international relations.

The Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Thursday lodged stern representations with the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong after a diplomat at the consulate general reportedly met with "Hong Kong independence" activists.
