After visiting China, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband released a report that reviewed human rights around the world and was highly critical of Beijing. In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said that the report is “a political show” of ideology. Qin blamed the report for having a double standard and interfering with China’s internal affairs.
Qin also said that all the nations singled out were developing countries. He asked why Britain did not talk about itself and other Western nations which, he said, had violated human rights.
