BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s foreign ministry said on Thursday a U.S. State Department human rights report critical of China was filled with “ideological prejudice and groundless accusations”.
China hoped the United States would take a close look at its own rights record, ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a daily news briefing.
