China, US law experts discuss human rights issues

BEIJING, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Experts from China and the United States held talks on various human rights topics during the Sixth Sino-American Dialogue on Rule of Law and Human Rights in Beijing.

The two-day event, which started on Monday, brought together 40 experts, scholars, judges and lawyers from the two countries to discuss protecting the interests of people involved in legal cases, human rights protection in judicial reform and guiding lawyers to contribute to the judicial system.

At Monday's opening ceremony, Cui Yuying, deputy director of the State Council Information Office, urged the two countries to view each other's human rights progress objectively and reasonably, and fully understand the differences resulting from history, culture, political systems and the stages of economic and social development.

According to a statement released Tuesday during the meeting, American attendees expressed confidence in the rule of law in China, praising the country's progress in the realm of human rights and the role of legal reform in solving historical problems.

The event is jointly organized by the China Foundation for Human Rights Development, China Society for Human Rights Research and National Committee on US-China Relations of the United States.

First held in 2009, the dialogue serves as a crucial platform for Chinese and American non-governmental organizations to boost exchanges and mutual understanding in rule of law and human rights protection.
