A request to the international community from China on behalf of Sri Lanka.

Tuesday, 19 November 2013 - 8:28

China says that international community should offer constructive help for countries to improve their human rights through their efforts.


China's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang said China holds that since national conditions of countries differ and levels of economic and social development vary, countries can have differences or even disagreements on human rights protection.


He was responding to media question at the regular press conference yesterday on what is China's comment on Britain setting a deadline for Sri Lanka to set its human rights record straight.


Describing the query as a "domestic affair" of the British Commonwealth, the spokesman said "What is most important is that human rights conditions should be improved by the governments of countries concerned through their efforts."


He added that Constructive help should also be offered by the international community.
