BEIJING, May 25 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday described a recent U.S. government report on China's human rights practices as "biased."

The spokesman urged the United States to stop interfering in the internal affairs of other nations.

"It's a solid fact that remarkable, well-recognized progress has been achieved in China's field of human rights over the past 30 years and more," spokesman Hong Lei said in response to the "Country Reports on Human Rights for 2011," which was issued by the U.S. State Department on Thursday.

Hong said the report's criticism of China is biased and baseless.

"There is always room for improvement on human rights for any country," the spokesman said, adding that all the countries in the world can deepen mutual understanding for common improvement through equal dialogue.

But no single country should use human rights as a tool to interfere with another's internal affairs, he said.

"We sincerely advise the U.S. side to do more self-examination and stop its wrong thinking and doings on the issue," he added.
