BEIJING, Dec. 17 (People's Daily Online) -- The Chinese Foreign Ministry has urged some countries to stop interfering in China's internal affairs, slamming statements issued by some foreign officials on Tibet.

At a daily press briefing, ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, "Tibetan affairs are totally China's domestic affairs."

Recently, politicians in the United States, the European Union and Canada had disregarded facts, confused right and wrong and groundlessly accused China on Tibet-related issues, according to Hua.

She stressed that the comments were rude interferences in China's internal affairs and the country was strongly dissatisfied with them and resolutely opposed those acts.

Tibet has made great progress in politics, economy, culture and other fields since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, Hua said, noting that it is widely recognized by the international community.

The spokeswoman urged relevant sides to immediately correct erroneous words and deeds, earnestly respect China's sovereignty and no longer do anything to interfere in the country's internal affairs.
