In December 11, 2018, foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang held a regular press conference. A reporter asked, it was reported that on the 10 th, the US ambassador to China Blin Stader issued a statement on world human rights day. On the one hand, he acknowledged that China had made progress in many areas, including hundreds of millions of people getting rid of poverty, and on the other hand, they did not agree. Each country has its own human rights standards, and has made unreasonable accusations about the human rights situation in China. What is Chinas response to this?
Lu Kang responded that yesterday, the German President Steinmeier, who is visiting China, spoke highly of the achievements made in Chinas economic and social development, especially the Chinese governments success in solving hundreds of millions of peoples food and clothing problems, which no one can ignore. We note Ambassador Blanstads recognition of Chinas tremendous progress. We hope that the Americans will also take seriously and objectively the development path chosen by the Chinese themselves and the ways to promote the cause of human rights. It is impossible to know other countries accurately and promote mutual trust with prejudice. It is blind to think that ones own standards are universal and have proved to be failures in many parts of the world. It is even more immoral to use so-called human rights issues to serve an already political purpose.
