BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday expressed hope that the United States and some of its Western allies can abandon double standards, and face up to their own human rights problems and take concrete actions to improve and protect human rights.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks at a daily news briefing when responding to the U.S. State Department's comments on a China-sponsored resolution, titled "Promoting Mutually Beneficial Cooperation in the Field of Human Rights," adopted on Tuesday by the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council.
