China here on Saturday refuted the criticism by some U.S. Congress members of its failure to crack down on intellectual property rights infringements.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu made the remarks Saturday when commenting on media reports that the U.S. Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus condemned Canada, China, Mexico, Russia and Spain on May 19 for failing to crack down on piracy of copyrighted films, music, videogames and other entertainment products and placed them in the "2010 International Piracy Watch List."

Ma said the Chinese government attached great importance to intellectual property rights protection and has embedded it into its national strategy.

China had continuously promoted the building of a system and mechanisms for intellectual property rights protection, improved laws and regulations in the field and strengthened law enforcement, said Ma.

"The policies we have implemented, the measures and actions we have taken and the effects of our efforts are there for all to see," Ma said.

"The involved U.S. Congress members should respect the fact and stop making groundless accusation against China," he said.
