update:February 25,2021
Feb.25,2021 -- Human rights must be about putting people first, China's top diplomat has said after the UK foreign minister launched a direct attack on China's policies. 
Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a speech to the United Nations Human Rights Council that China's policies were succeeding in improving the health, economic prospects and security of all its citizens.
"The people's interests are where the human rights cause starts and ends. Increasing people's sense of gains, happiness and security is the fundamental pursuit of human rights as well as the ultimate goal of national governance," Wang Yi said.
