Chinese report on human rights in the United States Bernard Hibbitts at 10:08 AM ET
[JURIST] In a rapid come-back to the 2002 US State Department Human Rights Reports released March 31 which contained, among other things, a critical report on the current state of human rights in China, the Chinese government has released its own report on human rights in the United States in 2002. The report concludes:
The United States has been releasing annually Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, censuring other countries for their human rights situations, but it has turned a blind eye to serious violations of human rights on its own soil. This double standard on human rights issues cannot but meet with strong rejection and opposition worldwide, leaving the United States more and more isolated in the international community.
