On April 24, State Council of PRC reported on publishing The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2017 prepared as a response to a recently released Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for a number of countries including China, RIA Novosti reports.
The State Council stressed that Washington appointed itself to be a “human rights judge” and “the guardian of human rights” notwithstanding human rights degradation in the U.S.
“On April 20 local time, the State Department of the United States released its country reports on human rights practices for 2017, posing once again as “the guardian of human rights” and a self-styled “human rights judge.” It continued to point fingers and cast groundless blame on the domestic affairs and human rights situation of other countries as if it had the most perfect human rights condition in the world,” the authors of the China’s report said.
According to the authors of the document, the situation with human rights in the U.S. is deteriorating. Crime in the U.S. is on the rise, the issue of fire arms is still on the agenda, the police continues to demonstrate cruelty, the authorities interfere into private life of its citizens on the Internet aggressively and arbitrarily, it breaches all the boundaries of personal inviolability, whereas life and freedom of the people are under serious threat. The document points to continued escalation of inter-racial relations.
Chinese experts also point to a high poverty level in the U.S., where over 40 million people live beyond the poverty line, 18.5 million people live in deep poverty. China’s State Council also showed concern on the issues of educational and medical services, providing security for the minors, discrimination of women facing psychological, physical, and sexual violence more and more often. Children also often become victims of such violence.
China also noted multiple cases of shooting in different states of the U.S., such as Las-Vegas. 60 people were killed in the shooting, over 500 people were injured.
At the same time, The Global Times issue of April 24 contained an editorial, saying that China understands human rights more extensively than the West. For China, human rights include wealthy life, social justice, clean public toilets, the possibility to travel and not to have an inferiority feeling caused by poverty. All these are tangible human rights. The authors also reminded that promotion of “democracy” in such countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lybia left these countries in chaos.
