China calls on international community to reduce human rights deficit
update:March 03,2020
March 3,2020 -- Liu Hua, Special Representative for Human Rights of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, calls on the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to pay more attention to the voices of developing countries during the on-going 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council, expecting more investments in promoting economic, social and cultural rights and the right to development, which are of concern to the majority of developing countries. 
Liu said that most of the current UN Human Rights Council agenda focuses on national human rights and the political rights of citizens, while the global human rights deficit continues to expand. Globally, 820 million people lack access to adequate food, more than 70 million people are displaced, 24 million children are unable to attend school due to conflicts, 60 million people are undernourished, 7 million people are forced to relocate due to climate change, and 2.2 billion people are unable to access safe and clean drinking water.
We still have a long way to go to achieve the United Nations goal of human rights for all. China hopes the UN human rights chief and the Human Rights Council could take more effective measures to advance positive progress in those fields.
