US human rights violations rebuked
Serious human rights infringements are threatening democracy with ruin, China claimed in its Human Rights Record of the United States in 2004 released yesterday.
The Chinese record lists a multitude of serious violations of human rights in America.
Lin Bocheng, secretary general of China Foundation for Human Rights Development, said the report exposes and "castigates the misdeeds of the US on human rights and its power politics, hegemonism and double standards on human rights issues."
Lin added: "The record reminds the US of its own violations and asks the country to dedicate energy into improving its own poor human rights situation instead of interfering in domestic politics of other countries or playing a role of 'human rights police'."
The report was compiled on a basis of world peace and development and interprets the correct stand China holds on human rights issues, he said.
"China always proposes the development of human rights is a gradual process and should be connected with different national conditions. China insists dialogues in solving this issue," he added.
Professor Feng Zhuoran of the Capital Normal University said it is important for the global community to jointly educate the US on human rights equality and other related culture.
"The report urges the US to approach the human rights issues of other countries from an equal perspective," said Feng.
Both experts claim the Chinese Government enacted significant advancements last year in shielding human rights for its people. They believe each nation should handle its own problems.
