Along with EU partners, we will be expressing our concern about the human rights situation in China in the common statement on country situations at the forthcoming 57th session of the UN Commission on Human Rights. Discussion on this EU common statement is under way. We will be pressing for the statement to include a call for the rights of the child in China to be recognised.
