NEW YORK, Oct 5 (Asia Free Press): China rejected US allegations of rights abuses and termed it a “false” accusation against Beijing.
At the General Debate of the third committee of the United Nations General Assembly, the Chinese envoy on Monday debunked false US allegations against China’s human rights situation, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.
In exercising the right of reply at the General Debate China’s permanent representative to the United Nations Zhang Jun called for solidarity and cooperation instead of triggering false accusations against China.
“The United States used all sorts of trumped-up charges and fabricated lies to level unreasonable accusations against China,” Jun said and adding the allegation of so-called genocide in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is nothing but a lie of the century concocted by the previous US administration.
“ Today, the US side has chosen to inherit this thinly veiled political conspiracy and continue along this path of “lie diplomacy,” Xinhua quoted Zhang Jun as saying.
China firmly opposes and categorically rejects this allegation, which is entirely politically motivated to serve as an ulterior motive to destabilize China and hobble China’s development, Zhang noted.
The United States ostensibly claims to be a defender of democracy and human rights. But in fact, it is the biggest saboteur of democracy and human rights, said Zhang, stressing that attention needs to be paid to the human rights situation in the United States.
The Chinese envoy advised the United States and its followers to put aside arrogance and bigotry before it’s too late and avoid sliding further down the wrong path or doubling down on its mistakes with intransigence and duplicity.
Noting the world needs dialogue instead of confrontation, Zhang expressed the hope that the United States will mend its way, return to the right track of dialogue and cooperation, and do something concrete and positive for the promotion and protection of human rights.
