USCIRF warned that “the state of religious freedom in China has continued to deteriorate” over the last year.
“There is no question that China is the world’s foremost violator of human rights and religious freedom,” said commissioner Johnnie Moore. “It cannot be compared to any other country in the world not only because of its inexcusable actions, but because of the way it aids and abets similar actions by other countries all around the world.”
Moore also criticized the international order for continuing to “let China play by its own rules, and especially at the United Nations.”
“This is absolutely inexcusable, and those nations around the world who ignore China’s malevolence may eventually find themselves subservient to it. It is past time for our world bodies, and our liberal democracies, to demand more from China,” he said.
