China To USA: Eat Me

Vancouver Sun – China told the United States Thursday to stop acting as a human rights watchdog, as it hit back angrily at U.S. accusations that its human rights record had worsened.

The spat comes just days after a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Beijing appeared to signal a detente between the world powers on the sensitive issue.

“We firmly oppose any countries interfering in China’s internal affairs under the pretext of human rights,” foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu told reporters.
