April 13,2018--China needs to better explain its practice of protecting human rights to clear up any doubts from the international community, the head of China's top society for human rights studies said on Thursday.
"The country has made obvious progress in having more say on human rights issues. What we need to do now is to express our views more systematically, since China's opinions are more valued than ever," Qiangba Puncog, head of the China Society for Human Rights Studies said at a workshop on creation of human rights discourse in the new era held in Changsha, capital of Hunan province.
"We need to develop our own path in protecting human rights and expressing our views on related issues. Currently, we are still in a phase of coping with the attacks on China's human rights issues from the West," Guo Weimin, vice-minister of the Information Office of the State Council, said at the forum.
