Chinese Embassy Statement on Fiji's Candidacy for UNHRC President


The Chinese Embassy in Fiji took note of the media report claiming “China’s opposition of Fiji’s candidacy for the President of the UN Human Rights Council 2021”. The Embassy finds it necessary to clarify that the above-mentioned media report is irresponsible and inconsistent with facts.

Both China and Fiji are developing countries and have the same and similar positions in the field of human rights. China is happy to see the Fiji candidate elected as the President of the UNHRC 2021 on behalf of the Asia and Pacific Group. Whoever becoming the new President of the UNHRC should endeavor to promote the human rights cause in a constructive way and balance two types of human rights.
