FM: US criticism on China's human rights 'unreasonable'
Adjust font size:

The criticism by the US Department of State on China's democracy and human rights situation in a recent report is "unreasonable," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said on Monday.

He made the remark when asked about the "2008 Country Reports on Advancing Freedom and Democracy" released on May 27.

Qin pointed to China's people-first policy and governance for the people, and said the government had made remarkable achievements on the improvement of democracy and the legal system, and the promotion of human rights and freedom among all ethnic groups.

"It is unreasonable" for the report, in disregard of facts, to rashly criticize China in this regard, he said.

"We remind the US side to pay more attention to its own human rights problems, stop interfering in the internal affairs of other countries with such issues as democracy and human rights, and do more things that are conducive to the advancement of Sino-US mutual trust and bilateral relations," Qin said.
