China retorted the U.S. criticism on its human rights situation by publishing a report of the U.S. human rights record on April 10, 2011.

The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2010 was released by the Information Office of China's State Council, or cabinet, in response to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2010 issued by the U.S. Department of State on April 8.

The U.S. reports were "full of distortions and accusations of the human rights situation in more than 190 countries and regions including China. However, the United States turned a blind eye to its own terrible human rights situation and seldom mentioned it," China's report said.

The United States had taken human rights as "a political instrument to defame other nations' image and seek its own strategic interests," the report said.
