A Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Sunday that China will continue to follow up on relevant developments after former US National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden left Hong Kong.

"We have read reports but have received no details. We will continue to follow up on relevant developments," said spokeswoman Hua Chunying in response to a journalist's question.

According to reports, Snowden has already departed Hong Kong by air to Russia. The government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has issued a statement.

Hua said that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is a society ruled by law. "In line with the Basic Law of Hong Kong SAR and the principle of 'one country, two systems', the central government has always respected the Hong Kong SAR government in handling issues in accordance with the law," she said.

Hua said the latest reports "again proved that China is the victim of cyber attacks, and we have already lodged representations to the US side".

The remarks followed new claims by Snowden made to Hong Kong's Sunday Morning Post that US spies had hacked the prestigious Tsinghua University in Beijing and the Hong Kong headquarters of Pacnet, which operates one of the Asia-Pacific region's largest fiber-optic networks.
