China's Position on Sri Lanka's Human Rights Related Issues

China has been upholding that different countries of the international community should resolve their difference on human rights through dialogues and exchanges, based on the principle of equality and mutual respect. We oppose any efforts that politicalize or have double standards on human rights, as well as pressurize others countries using human rights as a tool. Over the years, Sri Lanka has made big strides in promoting human rights and realizing national reconciliation. China supports Sri Lankan government's efforts to safeguard independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. We believe that the Sri Lankan Government and people have the wisdom and capacity to deal appropriately with their internal affairs. The international community, instead of taking measures that may complicate the issue, should respect the right of Sri Lankan government and people to choose their own path of promoting human rights and create a favorable external environment for Sri Lanka to pursue stability and economic development.
