III-1 Question: The United States again put China and some other countries on the list of "countries of particular concern" in its annual "International Religious Freedom Report" for 2006 for alleged "lack of religious freedom." How does China respond to this? What is the real situation of religious freedom there?
III-2 Question: What did it mean to China when it was elected as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC)? What does China expect of this new council?
III-3 Question: In its annual World Report for 2006, the New York-based Human Rights Watch claimed that the "human rights conditions in China deteriorated significantly in 2006" due to the government's "stricter controls on the press, Internet, academics, lawyers, and nongovernmental organizations." Is that true? How should the changes in China's human rights situation be viewed?
III-4 Question: Some have accused the Chinese Government of practicing a policy of "cultural genocide" in Tibet aimed at destruction of Tibetan cultural heritage. They claim that the Qinghai-Tibet Railway poses a threat to Tibetan and Buddhism culture, which will lead to eventual extinction of the unique way of life of Tibetan people. Do these accusations have any factual ground?
III-5 Question: The Dalai clique and some Western media have often said that China built the railway link to Tibet mainly to plunder the region of its mineral resources. What is China's response to this? Who, the Han people or the Tibetans, will benefit most from this railway?
III-6 Question: Since the Democratic Progressive Party came to power and since early 2007 in particular, it has unveiled a series of "de-sinicization" activities in Taiwan. How does the Chinese mainland view these activities? What stance will it take toward the possible extreme moves of the "Taiwan independence" secessionist forces?
III-7 Question: The 59th World Health Assembly (WHA) in 2006 decided by consensus not to include in its agenda the proposal by a small number of countries to "invite the Republic of China (Taiwan) to participate in the assembly as an observer," which once again frustrated attempts by the Taiwan authorities to attend WHA sessions and get into the World Health Organization (WHO). What does it mean and what is China's position regarding Taiwan-related proposals at the WHO?
III-8 Question: July 1, 2007, marks the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China. Has Hong Kong developed as the Chinese Government expected? How do you appraise the practice of "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong? What role will Hong Kong play in China's future economic development?
