BEIJING, December 10. /TASS/. China condemns any torture of prisoners and demands that the United States must obey international laws, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday, commenting on a report of the Congress about tortures of prisoners in the US Central Intelligence Agency’s black sites.
“We have paid attention to the report,” he said, adding China always condemned tortures.
The United States must revise and correct its approaches and obey international laws in full, the diplomat said.
Chinese media, including Xinhua, said that cruel methods used by the CIA when torturing prisoners without trial and investigation violated international laws on human rights and also values the United States tried to defend. The Chinese public has condemned the facts revealed in the report.
The US Congress Select Committee for Intelligence on Tuesday published a 528-page report revealing that various tortures were used when suspected terrorists were interrogated. It lasted many years. The United States had to tighten security at their embassies and consulates and recommended Americans to remain cautious for fear that the report would cause protests in some countries, first of all in the Middle East, and may lead to attacks against US citizens.
