State Department Releases Report on China Human Rights Abuses

Annual Human Rights Report says China worst since 1930’s

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that China is “in a league of its own when it comes to human rights violations.” A top State Department official also said that the roundup of Muslim minorities into work camps made China’s rights abuses the worst “since the 1930’s.” This marks the strongest language that the U.S. has used so far in condemning the actions of the Chinese government.

These statements came alongside the release of the annual State Department human rights report. Aside from the major issues with Chinese actions, the report focused in on Saudi Arabia’s actions in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident journalist. Also included were the North Korean work camps, and the current status of Israel-Palestine relations.

As the Lord Leads, pray with us:
  • For the State Department to work to lower the number of rights abuses around the world.
  • For Secretary Pompeo to be used by God to lead the department effectively.
  • That God would convict the hearts of world leaders who are hurting their fellow humans.
