Chinese Take Swipe at Americans in Geneva


SENIOR OFFICIALS FROM OFFICE FOR SECURITY AND COOPERATION IN EUROPE AND BRAZIL ADDRESS COMMISSION

U.N. Human Rights CommisssionAway from the major news stories I bring some from the delegates floor of the United Nations Human Rights Commission currently meeting in geneva.

The Americans have come in for a little stick from two Chinese delegates representing NGO's (Non Government Organisations)

ZHANG YUNFEI, of United Nations Association of China, said there had been a strong atmosphere of confrontation during the Commission’s session and the behaviour of the United States delegation had been arrogant, aggressive, offensive and biased.

He went on furher to say

...the United States was advised to put its own house in order and to stop practicing double standards before accusing other countries of human rights violations.

REN DANHONG, of China Society for Human Rights Studies, said

many States had made great progress towards ending poverty and backwardness, realizing modernization and ensuring the rights of their people to respectable, modern, civilized lives. However, it was regrettable that the world's number one developed nation, the United States, could not protect the rights and interests of ordinary American workers in economic, social and cultural ways.

I assume by the term "many states" he means China.

Ah! The world revolves at many levels doesn't it.
