WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. State
Department interfered with the internal affairs of China and some other
countries again, groundlessly criticizing them in its 2008 Country Reports on
Human Rights Practices presented to the U.S. Congress Wednesday.
The report turned a blind eye to the efforts and
historic achievements China has made in human rights that have been widely
recognized by the international community.
It willfully ignored and distorted basic facts,
groundlessly assailing China's human rights conditions and making random and
irresponsible remarks on China's ethnic, religious and legal systems.
It also pointed its fingers at the human rights
conditions in some other countries such as Russia, Pakistan, the Democratic
People's Republic of Korea, Cuba, Iran, Somalia and Zimbabwe.
The U.S. State Department has issued a report almost
every year since 1977 on the human rights conditions of other countries, using
it as an excuse to interfere with others' internal affairs.
