UN: China and US seem ‘hostile’ on human rights

The UN’s human rights chief has said China’s Communist Party has taken a "hostile position" on the universality of human rights, and that "the rhetoric from the White House" is heading in the same direction.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein also told French Catholic daily La Croix in an interview published on Monday that Europe faces a "crisis of identity and integration policy".

Mr Zeid said that while governments must protect their citizens, he is "worried about the tendency of authorities in Europe to over-react after terrorist attacks".

He pointed to a UN tribunal’s genocide conviction of former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic as a victory for human rights.

Mr Zeid also defended the UN and said his office’s budget equalled "one-tenth of what the Swiss spend on chocolate every year".
