China censures America on human rights

Report issued in response to US global study

BEIJING — China slammed the human rights record of the United States in response to Washington’s report on rights around the world, saying that US military operations have infringed on rights abroad and that political donations at home have thwarted the country’s democracy.

The report released Sunday in China, which defines human rights primarily in terms of improving living conditions for its 1.3 billion people, also cited gun violence in the United States among its examples of human rights violations, saying it was a serious threat to the lives and safety of America’s citizens.
