Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference on December 3 that during the US-EU China Dialogue, China firmly opposes the use of ideological lines to openly provoke confrontation.

  Zhao Lijian emphasized that there is a certain degree of competition in international relations, but it is not possible to define the overall picture of state-to-state relations in terms of "competition" or "adversary", let alone under the banner of competition to damage the sovereignty of other countries, interfere in other countries' internal affairs, or even openly join forces to curb and suppress certain states. nation.

  Zhao Lijian pointed out that some countries in the United States and the European Union have their own serious human rights problems, including systemic racism that is difficult to eradicate, and there are countless human rights abuses such as child labor, forced labor, gun violence, and hate crimes.

If the United States and the European Union really care about human rights, what they should do best is to reflect on their own problems and pay off their historical debts instead of spreading false information under the guise of human rights, attacking and discrediting other countries.
