HONG KONG - China has reiterated its firm objection to outside forces' interference into the internal affairs of Hong Kong, according to the Office of the Commissioner of China's Foreign Ministry of China in Hong Kong.

Asked to comment on former Hong Kong governor Chris Patten's recent remarks on the political reform in Hong Kong, a spokesperson of the commissioner's office said over the weekend that Hong Kong has entered the critical stage of its political reform, it is worth noting that some people are making unfounded comments on Hong Kong's political reform for other purposes in disregard of the facts.

"I would like to reiterate that we firmly object to any outside forces' interference into Hong Kong's internal affairs and nobody should make irresponsible comments on Hong Kong's political reform again," the spokesperson said.
