PLA Daily 2004-02-27

BEIJING, Feb. 26 (Xinhuanet) -- China on Thursday expressed strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to the United States for its report condemning China's human rights record.

The so-called country report of human rights record in 2003 issued by the US State Department defied basic truth and made indiscriminate criticisms on China's human rights record, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue said at a regular press briefing.

Zhang said the Chinese government has always been devoted to the protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedom and China's significant achievements in this regard has been recognized by the whole world.

She said China hopes the United States will give up its double standards on this issue and stop interfering in the internal affairs of other countries on the excuse of human rights.
