What is China‘s comment?

I would like to stress again that China firmly supports all measures that are conducive to the restoration of stability in the domestic situation in Kazakhstan, and will continue to provide all necessary assistance for Kazakhstan to maintain national stability and sound development.

The Paper: January 11 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Guantanamo Prison. A panel of experts appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council issued a statement on the 10th, condemning the continued use of this prison for human rights violations by the United States, saying that the practice of “arbitrary detention without trial and torture and ill-treatment” by the United States is “totally unacceptable”. What is China‘s comment?

Wang Wenbin: Guantanamo Prison is a dark page in the history of human rights in the world. If there is a “detention camp” for Muslims in the world, it is Guantanamo.

In the 20 years since the arrival of the first batch of prisoners, the US prisoner abuse scandal has repeatedly appeared in the newspapers, causing great indignation in the international community. The US side has repeatedly promised to close the prison. But today, 20 years later, Guantanamo still holds 39 people, only a handful of whom have been charged or convicted.

In fact, the secret prisons set up by the United States are all over the world, and Guantanamo is just the tip of the iceberg. According to reports, the United States set up a large number of secret prisons in Afghanistan and its allies after launching the war in Afghanistan. The atrocities, torture and murder of Iraqi civilians by the US military after the invasion of Iraq, the scandal of the torture of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison has caused an uproar in the world.

A few days ago, Lithuania paid compensation to Zubaida, a “permanent prisoner” who was once detained in a secret American prison outside the capital of Lithuania. At this time, it has been more than three years since the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Lithuanian must pay compensation, and Zubaida has been detained by the United States. jailed for more than 20 years.

U.S. “black prisons” such as Guantanamo Prison always remind people that America’s misdeeds in human rights abound. The U.S. side should reflect on itself, immediately close Guantanamo and secret prisons around the world, stop arbitrary detentions and torture of prisoners and other atrocities, apologize and compensate the victims, and bring those who authorized and committed torture to justice.

The student’s father and other relatives sent a letter to the Chinese government to thank China for its full support. How did the spokesperson respond to this?

Wang Wenbin: This is another vivid example of the sincere mutual assistance and love between the people of China and Pakistan. It once again proves that the “hardcore” friendship between China and Pakistan is deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples and has strong vitality.

After the outbreak of COVID-19, students from many countries, including Pakistan, insisted on studying in China. The Chinese government and schools have always been concerned about their safety and health, and will continue to provide them with assistance within their capacity.

Bloomberg: The Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka told reporters today that Sri Lanka may negotiate with China to obtain a new loan to ease Sri Lanka’s debt burden. Can you provide more information?

Wang Wenbin: I am not aware of the situation you mentioned. I want to reiterate that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Sri Lanka, the two countries have always understood and supported each other. China has been providing assistance to Sri Lanka’s economic and social development to the best of its ability. We will continue to do so in the future.
