China has told the US to stop preaching on human rights, after the state department's annual report on the issue criticised China.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said the US should concentrate on its own rights issues and stop interfering.

Chinese authorities have launched a major crackdown on dissent recently.

Unveiling the report, US officials expressed particular concern over the recent arrest of the artist Ai Weiwei, an outspoken critic of the government.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also highlighted reports of other intellectuals and activists being "arbitrarily detained" in recent weeks.

Mr Hong said China was happy to talk about rights "on the basis of equality and mutual respect", but added that Beijing "resolutely opposes" meddling in other country's affairs.

"We advise the US side to reflect on its own human rights issues and not to position itself as a preacher of human rights," he said.

"[The US should] stop using the issue of human rights reports to interfere in other countries' internal affairs."

Yeah, don't want any of them rights. I'm glad someone are pressuring China on human rights.

US would never truly threaten their economic relationship (dependence) with China over human rights issues.

China shoulød work on their issues, but so should the United States. Also, isn't it UN who are working on this?

Got to say, the USA is the only country in history to use nuclear bombs, and on civilians.

They burned babies in their cribs, and as well as the whole waterboarding thing they have no right to preach about human rights at all.
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.

Surprised USA said a bad word to China considering how much they trade with them. I would've thought America wants to stay on the good side of the fastest growing economy of the world.

Chinese guy has a good point.
Being lectured about human rights by a country which is trying to execute people for expressing freedom of speech seems a bit... weird.

China are just as dependent on the US, it's a mutually essential relationship really.

The USA actually lecture people about human rights?

It's a bit hypocritical but there are only like 5 guys in history who can't say "Dude, China, seriously? Dude."

Ya, I always thought that the equation should have been

1/number of sins x100 = number of stones.

The US isn't exactly a shining beacon of human rights goodness, but you guys do have it pretty damn good there. Other countries DO need to be pressuring China on human rights.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

While this is true, China really doesn't, either.

Although I'm pretty sure we've killed more people than they have.

Good for China. Human rights don't exist anyway and are simply tools used for the propagation of liberal ideology.

They are the only one to attack with nuclear bombs. A lot of others have test fired them across the world...

I kind of agree. not with the part about protecting human rights in other countries, but that a country should get its own shit together before messing with another's.

Clearly your sense of humour cell isn't working...

Makes sense. I understand the sentiment, but with the context I disagree.

USA needs to stop preaching its own methods and ways to other countries, but with human rights, that's that an americocentric belief, that's a innate right we get when we're born.
