The reports published by the US Department of State made irresponsible remarks on the Macao SAR affairs that are China's internal issues, the statement said.

In the past 20 years since the establishment of the Macao SAR, the principles of "one country, two systems" and "Macao people administering Macao" with a high degree of autonomy have been successfully implemented in the Macao SAR, the statement said, adding that Macao people enjoy the rights and freedom which are fully guaranteed by the constitution and the Basic Law.
