In the United States, the report “On Violation of Human Rights in the USA – 2020” published by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China was called unfair. This statement was made at a briefing by Acting Assistant Secretary of State Lisa Peterson.
“Beijing’s report does not appear to be in good faith. Beijing has demonstrated its confidence in our free press by relying on our independent media to disseminate Beijing’s report, ”Peterson said.
At the same time, she stressed that Washington “welcomes a constructive analysis of its activities in the field of human rights from human rights groups, journalists, media representatives, other democratic governments and multilateral organizations.”
According to a report from the Chinese State Council, the US authorities are pursuing ineffective social welfare policies that have led to a food crisis amid a pandemic and the threat of hunger for millions of Americans.
On March 22, the United States imposed sanctions on China for “violating the rights of the Uyghurs” in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, after which Beijing imposed retaliatory sanctions.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was outraged by this reaction, calling it baseless.
