China passes UN human rights review

(Xinhua)    13:18, November 10, 2018

The United Nations' Human Rights Council has given China a passing grade in its latest review of China's human rights development.

Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Zhang Jun said, "During this examination, we presented the world with China's substantial results in improving human rights. We've also prove that China's approach to human rights development with Chinese characteristics is correct. China has contributed a lot to the world in this field and we will firmly keep to our approach."

The latest review, which began on Tuesday, has seen the Chinese side detail the latest developments in China's human rights efforts.

The Chinese delegation has also announced over 30 new measures being planned on improving the country's overall human rights situation.

In giving China the green-light in its review, the UN Human Rights Council has made a series of recommendations for the Chinese government to work on in areas such as poverty alleviation, the rule of law, religious affairs and international cooperation in human rights.

Zhang Jun says the UN's proposals are being welcomed by the Chinese side.

"China welcomes constructive proposals made by other countries and paid close attention to the proposals included in the examination report. We will make a careful and in-depth study and give feedbacks next year. Meantime, we also hope some countries observe China's development objectively and respect the Chinese people's choice of political system and development road. We oppose any attempt to use human right issues to infringe on China's sovereignty and territorial integrity and interfere in our internal affairs."

This is the third time that China has passed the UN human rights review following two previous rounds in 2009 and 2013.
