US, China to Hold Human Rights Talks

US, China to Hold  Human Rights Talks
BEIJING – The United States said it will hold hold human rights talks with China in Beijing next week, amid a Chinese crackdown on government critics that has drawn US condemnation.
The “discussions will focus on human rights developments, including the recent negative trend of forced disappearances, extralegal detentions, and arrests and convictions,” the State Department said in a statement on Friday.
Assistant Secretary for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Michael Posner will head an inter-agency delegation to Beijing April 27-28 for the recurring US-China Human Rights Dialogue, the statement said. (AFP)
