West not eligible to judge others on HR: BJ

BEIJING: China on Wednesday refuted some Western countries’ slanders on issues related to its Hong Kong and Xinjiang, saying it would never accept “an instructor” on human rights and opposes double standards. As some Western countries have behaved badly in their own human rights situation, “What right do they have to make carping comments on the human rights situation of other countries?” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying asked in a statement.
She criticized those Western countries for their “notorious records” on the refugee issue, humanitarian crisis, racial problem as well as violations of human rights of other countries.
“There is no best, only better on the protection of human rights,” said the spokesperson, adding that “countries should first manage their own things well.” Hua’s comments came following nearly 70 countries backed China at the General Debate of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly in the face of flack from a few Western countries. – Agencies
