A senior U.S. administration official said Kerry raised the issue of human rights in a “direct, candid way” with senior Chinese officials on Wednesday, citing individual cases, including arrests made over the last several months.
“He described our perception of a trend in China, with an increase in arrests and an increase in harassment of individuals who are expressing political views,” the official said, briefing reporters after the first day of talks.
Kerry also discussed the treatment of minorities as well as the situation in the western regions of Xinjiang and Tibet.

John Kerry was Right, again.

The US congress/executive is fascist and therefore it will always grant China the free trade agreement extension regardless of what Military Communist Chinese do.
Voters in America continue to elect such a government, and continue to support Communist filth.

US concern for Human Rights allows US citizens to be killed by drones because some secret committee fingered them. Drones kill random women and children all the time and Kerry never asks about their human rights.
