“We urge the so-called ‘U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’ to abandon its prejudices, respect facts and stop intervening in China’s domestic affairs by means including issuing reports”
– Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu
China rejected claims of a US commission report that accused them and other countries of seriously violating religious freedoms. The annual report released last Thursday, claims that
authorities in China had severely curtailed the freedoms of Tibetan Buddhists and Muslim Uighurs, and tortured practitioners of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement.
