On February 15, 2019, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng met with permanent representatives to the United Nations Office at Geneva and principal diplomats of eight countries, namely Belarus, Cambodia, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Senegal, Russia and Venezuela.

Le Yucheng pointed out that the current international situation is faced with increasing unstable, uncertain and insecure factors as well as increased human rights deficit. Various parties should continuously follow the path of multilateralism, adhere to the promotion of human rights through peace, development, fairness and cooperation, respect the human rights development paths independently chosen by other countries, and jointly oppose human rights hegemony, so as to promote the sound development of the world human rights cause.

Members of the visiting delegation spoke highly of the development path, concept and achievements with Chinese characteristics and expressed the willingness to make joint efforts with the Chinese side to push various parties to attach equal importance to all kinds of human rights, enhance dialogue and cooperation, oppose the politicization of human rights issues, and constantly improve global human rights governance.

Both sides also exchanged views on China's participation in the third Universal Periodic Review at the United Nations Human Rights Council, measures for counter-terrorism and de-extremization in Xinjiang and current international hotspot issues.

The delegation will also visit the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
