Cui Yuying, vice minister of the State Council Information Office, recently argued that China should stick to a development path of human rights that is in line with national conditions.

In an article published Monday on the website of Qiushi Journal, a magazine of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, Cui noted that Chinese President Xi Jinping has made a series of remarks related to human rights since he took office three years ago, which has enriched China’s human rights-related theory and practice.

The vice minister attributed the achievements China has made in human rights to the development path the country has chosen in accordance with its national conditions. As the largest developing country in the world, China has seen poverty and imbalanced development as the greatest impediment to human rights, she said. Thus, the country has focused on developing its economy and improving people’s livelihood. For example, China has lifted more than 600 million people out of poverty, which is itself a great achievement in human rights, Cui argued.

The vice minister also reminded that the full realization of human rights does not come instantly but takes time. Only when universal principles are combined with specific national conditions can human rights be better guaranteed, she added.

The country has also been promoting international cooperation on human rights, the vice minister continued. She noted that the right to peace and development are basic human rights, which the country has made tremendous efforts to safeguard, including sending peacekeeping missions and driving the global economy.
