The 12th Sino-German Human Rights Symposium was held from July 13 to 14 in Beijing, with a theme of international law and human rights protection. Chinese and German participants at the symposium discussed international legal protection for sovereignty and civil rights, and coordination between international human rights conventions and national laws in respective countries, exchanged their views in a candid method and reached extensive consensus on related issues.

Huang Mengfu, former vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and chairman of the China Human Rights Development Fund, and Cui Yuying, deputy director of the Information Office of the State Council, attended the opening ceremony.

Huang said the human rights dialogue mechanism between China and Germany helps build up a common, open and interactive platform of exchange for pushing forward human rights legal construction in a bid to promote the advancement of human rights in the two countries. He underlined that human rights protection requires appropriate attitudes and principles, which should integrate the universality of human rights and particularity of different countries, integrate international and domestic laws and integrate national sovereignty and human rights protection. China earnestly implements relevant norms of international law in human rights, considers the real conditions in China, transforms international human rights conventions into domestic laws in a strict and orderly legal procedure, and comprehensively, fully and effectively implements international human rights conventions in the country.
