China and United States Not On Good Terms

China has and the united States are not on good term after the U.S. government commission announced that Chinese violations of religious freedom were “severe and systematic”. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom reported that there were violations against Christians, Buddhists and Muslims in China last year.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Beijing was firmly opposed to the report’s findings and had already lodged a diplomatic protest.
“This report from the so-called U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is full of political bias and makes arbitrary and unfounded criticism of China,” Hua told a daily news briefing, adding that Chinese citizens had “ample” freedom religious freedom under law. The Chinese side has already made representations to the U.S. side and urged the U.S. to cease using religious issues as an excuse to interfere in China’s internal affairs.”
Since 1999 the Commission has been placing China as one of the top violators, let’s hope things change by next year.
