Calmy-Rey reminds China about human rights - Robert Brookes

From NZZ online:

Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey has warned that while China’s economy is booming, the country’s respect for human rights still needs to be improved.

Speaking at the Swiss International Business Forum in Zurich, she said the “substantial progress” made by the Chinese government in recent years was to be welcomed.

“But there still remain big challenges, particularly regarding protection of minorities, religious freedom and freedom of expression, torture and the death penalty,” she said.
