The attempt of the United States and some other countries to smear China’s human rights record failed again on Tuesday after numerous countries spoke in support of China at the General Debate of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly.
The United States, Germany, the United Kingdom and some other countries made unfounded accusations against China on issues related to Xinjiang and Hong Kong.
Zhang Jun, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations, refuted their statements and acts of interfering in China’s internal affairs with the excuse of human rights and provoking confrontation among member states.
Nearly 70 countries echoed China’s position. In support of China, Pakistan, Cuba and Kuwait made joint statements each representing numerous countries on Xinjiang, Hong Kong and human rights issues. A large number of countries supported China in their own national statements.
These countries spoke highly of China’s progress in human rights and showed support for China’s efforts to safeguard national sovereignty, security and unity, denouncing the politicization of human rights issues, double standards and political confrontation.
