During a general debate at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Wednesday, China, representing approximately 80 nations, emphasized the need for international cooperation and high-quality development.
The debate focused on the follow-up and implementation of the Vienna Declaration and Program of Action, which marked its 30th anniversary this year. China noted that the declaration was a significant milestone in the history of human rights and inspired much progress over the past 30 years. However, the international community now faces several challenges, including increasing discrimination and inequality, political polarization, and fragmentation, hindering the full and effective implementation of the declaration and its sustainable development.
To revitalize the declaration’s spirit, China emphasized that human rights are universal, indivisible, interdependent, and interrelated. Therefore, the international community must treat people’s economic, social, cultural, political, and developmental rights equally and promote the balanced development of these rights.
China stressed that the world currently faces numerous challenges, and the international community should prioritize development. It added that prioritizing people, hearing the voice of developing countries, eliminating inequality, and promoting high-quality, inclusive, and equitable development are crucial.
According to China, the importance of dialogue and international cooperation was also emphasized by China. All parties should carry out human rights exchanges and cooperation based on equality, solidarity, and mutual respect.
