On December 4, 2014, the 12th round of China-Germany human rights dialogue was held in Berlin of Germany, which was co-chaired by Director-General of the Department of International Affairs of the Foreign Ministry Li Junhua and Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid Christoph Strässer of Germany and attended by officials from the Supreme People's Court, the United Front Work Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, the State Ethnic Affairs Commission, the Ministry of Civil Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the State Administration for Religious Affairs. Both sides candidly exchanged their respective views on human rights and discussed issues concerning all kinds of discrimination, international cooperation on human rights and so on. The Chinese side presented a comprehensive introduction to China’s development in various fields of human rights, in particular the decision adopted at the 4th Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee to comprehensively promote the rule of law, hoping that Germany could view China’s progress in human rights objectively by standing in China's shoes and that the two countries could enhance mutual understanding and respect through sincere communication and carry out constructive cooperation. The Chinese side also expressed concerns over issues confronting Germany in social inclusion, immigrant and refugee rights, the protection of women’s rights and other aspects.
