UN approves China’s human rights progress report

The United Nations Human Rights Council meeting unanimously adopted the report submitted by China on Friday during the third round of the Universal Periodic Review in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting was chaired by Vojislav Suc, president of the Human Rights Council and permanent representative of Slovenia to the United Nations Office in Geneva.

“China resolutely opposes the practice of using human rights as an excuse to interfere in China’s internal affairs and undermine China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

“We will build a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2020, achieve basic socialist modernization by 2035, and make China a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful by 2050,” Zhang said. “We have every confidence in that.”
