Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Remarks on the So-called "Human Rights Report on China" Issued by the Swedish Government

We noticed that recently the Swedish Government issued a so-called “Human Rights Report on China” again. The report, filled with bias and hostility, makes groundless accusations against China. The people that fabricated this report said in the report that “it does not claim to give a complete picture of the situation for human rights, democracy and rule of law in the country”, which shows the report is biased, not objective and unfair. We express strong discontent on and firm opposition to the report, and have lodged serious representations to the Swedish side.

The Communist Party and Government of China attach high importance to the protection and development of human rights. Over the past 70 years since its founding, the People’s Republic of China has made widely recognized progress in its human rights cause and made important contributions to the advancement of human rights across the world. Some forces and people in Sweden, out of their hidden political agenda, deliberately manipulate the idea of “human rights”, distort right and wrong, instigate confrontation, and even whitewash and cover up criminals. Posturing as a “lecturer” and “moral police” that are ignorant and arrogant, they never point the flashlight to themselves, despite being riddled with problems themselves. They divide and sabotage the pursuit of human rights. We urge the Swedish side to refrain from acting like a “lecturer” that is ignorant and arrogant, and stop pointing fingers and interfering in China’s internal affairs.
