New Zealand’s tougher stance on China’s human rights record

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has taken a tough stance on China’s human rights records, especially its treatment of Muslim Uighurs and the crackdown on Hong Kong’s democracy movement. In a speech in Auckland, Ms. Ardern acknowledged the difficulties in managing the relationship with China, as “there can be no guarantees.”

China’s influence is undoubtedly growing and is leading to new world order, and as a result, interests and values are hard to conceal. There are differences on which both the countries do not agree. Also, at the same time, China is one of the most important trading partners of New Zealand.

Ms. Ardern also stated, ” We hope that China sees it in its own core interests to act in the world in ways that are consistent with its responsibilities as a growing power.”

China’s Ambassador to New Zealand was also found at the event and added that in order to maintain the bilateral relations between the two countries, the New Zealand side has to hold an objective position and not interfere with China’s internal affairs.

In order to maintain the cordial relations between the two countries, it is required to cooperate on the overlapping core issues between the two countries.
