All roads lead to human rights development
update:February 28,2020
Feb.28,2020 -- As there is more than one way to protect human rights, countries should respect the right of every country to choose its own path to achieve peace and development, said Chen Xu, China's permanent representative to the United Nations Office at Geneva, at the ongoing 43rd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council Wednesday.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations (UN), and peace and development remain the common aspirations of the international community, said Chen. But the UN-centered international system is still facing grave challenges with the rise of unilateralism and protectionism.
Stating that some countries are keen on using human rights as a political tool to judge other countries, Chen said that the economic, social and cultural rights and the right to development are still very important for developing countries.
Only by observing the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, by carrying out relevant work in an impartial, objective, constructive and non-selective manner, and by opposing double standards and the politicization of human rights, can the international human rights cause witness a healthy and stable progress, said Chen.
