China accused the US of monopolising human rights

Washington is using the topic of human rights as a political tool to suppress countries, but rights are not a monopoly or privilege of the US, said Lin Suntian, head of the China Overseas Friendship Society (OOSF)

China accused the US of monopolising human rights

“Human rights are not a privilege or monopoly of the US, but a common aspiration of all humanity. Ensuring equal rights and freedoms, decent work, basic necessities, housing, education and healthcare for all people in the world, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or culture, is an integral part of the international human rights cause”, –  said Lin Suntian.

He said the United States and other Western countries “do not care about real human rights and should be ashamed to talk about them.” The politician said the United States had been allegedly “protecting human rights” in Asian, African and Latin American countries for decades, but had never taken action to help any country successfully tackle development.

“The US cares about capital and politics, protecting the human rights of the rich. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The wealth of the 50 richest people in the US is equal to that of the poorest 165 million people”, –  Lin Suntian summarised.
