BBC Chinese recently reported that the United States and another eleven countries jointly made an announcement in the United Nations Human Rights Council, condemning China’s human rights record and asking China to release detained human rights activists and lawyers. The U.S. representative Keith Harper delivered a speech at the Council, also representing Australia, Britain, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, and Sweden. Chinese U.N representative Fu Cong responded with a stern rebuttal with very strong language pointing out that the U.S. attitude is hypocritical, which can be proven by its Guantanamo Bay detention camp, its wide-spread gun violence, and its deep racism. Fu also asked the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein to stop making unfounded subjective comments.
