May 25, 2016 -- The New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued a report on human rights in Tibet on May 22, bashing "the Chinese government's campaign to suppress Tibetans".
"I have no comment on this report released by the so-called human rights organization. How many of its members have been to China? How many of them have been to Tibet in particular? Do they really know about the true picture of Tibet? We hope they would take an objective and fair stance on China," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said at a regular press conference on Monday.
Dating back to May 23, 1951, Chinese central government and the local government of Tibet signed the Seventeen Points Agreement, realizing the peaceful liberation of Tibet. Over the past 65 years, great achievements have been made since Tibet’s peaceful liberation.
The HRW, an international non-governmental organization (NGO), labels itself as an advocate of human rights. It also criticized China's application for the 2022 Winter Olympics in March last year.
