Anti-China Draft Resolution on Human Rights thwarted
(18 April 2001)


In Geneva, on April 18, the 57th session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights made the decision that the anti-China draft resolution initiated by the United States this year would not be considered by the Commission. The decision was made when the Commission voted on a "no-action" motion tabled by China. 23 countries voted for the motion, 17 voted against it, 12 abstained and 1 did not participate in the voting. This is the 10th time that China has foiled US-led attempts to pass a resolution on China's human rights situation at the Commission's yearly session.
