No Human Rights Progress In China

The top U.S. envoy for human rights appealed for the release of Wei Jingsheng, China’s most famous dissident, but had no progress to report Sunday in Wei’s case or others after talks with Chinese officials.

John Shattuck said he told Chinese officials that the human rights situation in China has not improved over the past year.

No progress has been made in freedom of speech, association and religion, Shattuck said after 2 days of talks with Vice Foreign Minister Liu Huaqiu and other officials.
