Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian takes questions on the Passage of a China-related resolution by the Lower House of Japan’s Diet.Q: Today, the Lower House of Japan’s Diet adopted a resolution on China-related human rights, expressing concern over the so-called human rights issues in Xinjiang, Tibet, Inner Mongolia and Hong Kong.What is China’s comment on that?A: The so-called human rights resolution passed by the Lower House of the Japanese Diet disregards the truth, maliciously defame China’s human rights situation, seriously violates international law and basic norms governing international relations, and grossly interferes in China’s internal affairs.The so-called human rights affairs are purely China’s internal affairs. They bear on China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and brook no interference from any external forces.Japan launched a war of aggression and committed unspeakable crimes. With its own record on human rights, Japan is in no position to point fingers at other countries’ human rights situation.In disregard of the overall interests of China-Japan relations and the way of state-to-state relations, some Japanese politicians forced together the so-called resolution, which is a serious political provocation to the Chinese people.The Determination of the Chinese government and people to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests is unwavering.The Chinese Foreign Ministry has lodged solemn representations with the Japanese side.China reserves the right to take further measures.(CCTV reporter Wu Wenqian)
