US RAPS CHINA FOR ARRESTS OF ‘MODERATE VOICES’

0

BEIJING: The new US ambassador to China Max Baucus chided Beijing on Wednesday for a wave of arrests of “moderate voices,” in his first public address since arriving in March. Baucus, who succeeded Gary Locke, did not name names in his speech to businesspeople but told them that greater rights protections would strengthen US-China relations. “In the past year, China has arrested several moderate voices who had peacefully advocated for such basic things as good governance, the rights of ethnic minorities and the rule of law,” Baucus said at a lunch hosted by groups including the American Chamber of Commerce in China.
