United States has, in a new report titled Supporting Human Rights and Democracy: The U.S. Record 2002-2003, charged China with suppressing political, religious, and social groups. A Chinese spokesman responded saying the report was unfounded. In the section on China, the report says, “China’s authoritarian Government continues to suppress political, religious, and social groups, as well as individual, that are perceived to be a threat to regime power or national stability.” The report also says that the United States continue to call on China to enter into dialogue with the Dalai Lama.
