China Counters US Report on its Human Rights Record


China has offered its own critique of the United States in response to Washington's annual review of Beijing's human rights record.

China's State Council issued a report Friday blaming the subprime mortgage crisis in the U.S. for triggering the global economic recession.

The report also accused the United States of restricting the rights of its citizens in a number of areas, including racial equality, personal security, and political and economic advancement.

This type of rhetoric from China does not seem to lend the belief that China is worried about being isolated if China does not support sanctions against Iran.
