Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang, in a statement, said that all political parties in the U.S. should view China's development in an objective and rational manner.

"We hope relevant parties stop their groundless accusations against China and interference in China's domestic affairs and contribute more to bilateral trust and cooperation," Lu said, reported state-run Xinhua news agency.

A U.S. Republican Party document, approved on Tuesday, slams China's ruling Communist party for its crackdown on dissent.

"The liberalizing policies of recent decades have been abruptly reversed, dissent brutally crushed, religious persecution heightened, the internet crippled, a barbaric population control two-child policy of forced abortions and forced sterilizations continued, and the cult of Mao revived," the paper said.

The Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled last week that Beijing's territorial claims in the disputed waters have no legal basis.
