Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng Sums up the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Outcome Report on China at the United Nations (UN) with Three Types of Wide Recognition

2019/03/15

After attending the Adoption of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Outcome Report on China at the United Nations (UN), Head of the Chinese Delegation and Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng told the journalists that the UN Human Rights Council unanimously endorsed the third Universal Periodic Review Outcome Report on China. The whole process was smooth and achieved a complete success. It can be summarized with three types of wide recognition: first, China's achievements in human rights have been widely recognized; second, China's human rights development path has been widely recognized; and third, China's determination to protect human rights is widely recognized.

Le Yucheng said that last November, I announced 30 new measures of the Chinese side on human rights protection, and many early harvests have been made so far. Just now, I announced at the meeting that China would accept 284 of the 346 proposals put forward by all parties during the review period, accounting for 82 percent of the total, and covering economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights. It ranks first among the permanent members of the UN Security Council in terms of both the number and the ratio. All parties spoke highly of it and believed that it shows China's determination to promote and protect human rights. This once again shows that the Chinese people value their word and honor their promise and the Chinese people once made commitments, we will deliver on our commitments with concrete actions.
