China published a report on the United States’ human rights record on Friday, in response to U.S. criticism and “irresponsible remarks” about China.
“The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2013” was released by the Information Office of the State Council, China’s cabinet, in response to “Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2013” made public by the U.S. State Department on Thursday.
China’s report states that there were serious human rights problems in the U.S in 2013, with the situation deteriorating in many fields. Once again posing as “the world judge of human rights”, the U.S. government “made arbitrary attacks and irresponsible remarks” on almost 200 countries and regions, the report says.
The United States carefully concealed and avoided mentioning its own human rights problems, according to the report.
