On Friday, the 45th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review Working Group was held in Geneva, Switzerland, during which China's report for the fourth UPR was unanimously adopted. 

Ambassador Chen Xu, the Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations Office at Geneva and other international organizations in Switzerland, led the Chinese government delegation to attend the Friday meeting. 

Ambassador Chen said after the adoption of the report that this year marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. China is comprehensively promoting the construction of a strong country and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in a uniquely Chinese way. 

In the process of achieving this grand goal, we will ensure that the achievements of modernization benefit all the people more fairly, continuously improve the level of human rights protection, and promote the comprehensive development of human freedom, Chen said.

While promoting the high-quality development of its own human rights cause, China will always uphold peaceful development and win-win cooperation, adhere to the principle of achieving one's own goals while benefiting others, and advocate for a world characterized by equal and orderly multipolarity and inclusive economic globalization, said the ambassador.

China is willing to work with the international community to steadfastly promote and protect human rights, actively participate in global human rights governance, promote the common values of all mankind, and contribute to the building of a community with a shared future for humanity and the construction of a better world, Chen said.

Previously, the Chinese government delegation attended the review meeting on January 23 and engaged in constructive dialogue with representatives from various countries in an open and candid manner. 

More than 120 countries positively evaluated China's progress in human rights and fully recognized China's unremitting efforts in promoting and protecting human rights. The UPR is an important platform for countries to have equal and candid exchanges, engage in constructive dialogue, and cooperate on human rights issues within the framework of the United Nations. China previously participated in the first three rounds of review in 2009, 2013, and 2018.
