Xinhua Cites Criticisms on US Annual Human Rights Report

On April 13, 2011, Xinhua published an article reporting criticism from government officials or scholars in Russia, Venezuela, and the Ukraine, rebutting the recently released State Department’s “2010 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.” The article pointed out, “Such criticism suggests that the U.S. has no right to interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs.” 

The sources it quoted include an official statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Russia; remarks from Ana Elisa Osorio Granado, Vice Chairman of the Latin American Parliament; and comments from Mikhail Levski, a scholar from the Ukrainian Center for Independent Political Research.
