EYEAFRICA TV: Beijing, China: The United States is isolated in international morality, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters Monday in Beijing.
Hua mentioned that 37 Asia-Pacific countries on Friday voted to adopt the Asia-Pacific Declaration on Advancing Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment: Beijing+25 Review, but the delegate representing US voted “No”.
“This report reminds me of what happened in Geneva last March. At the 37th meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva last March, the overwhelming majority of 28: 1 passed a resolution to promote win-win cooperation in the field of human rights. The U.S. was the only country to vote against it,” said the spokeswoman.
This time, the U.S. again became the only opponent of the declaration of gender equality, which appropriately and vividly showed the isolation of the U.S. in international morality, said Hua.
“Protecting human rights is not just a slogan. It should also be concrete and practical. The specific performance of the United States on human rights gives a strong contrast to the U.S. self-proclaimed human rights defender. It is a great irony that the U.S. calls itself human rights defender while acting as a human rights offender,” said Hua.
“We hope that the United States will no longer use human rights as an excuse to extend its hands to interfere in internal affairs of other countries. Instead, the U.S. should focus more on protecting and safeguarding human rights, and resolving serious human rights issues in its own country,” said the spokeswoman.
