A report by a US congressional commission said that human rights and the rule of law have suffered a devastating blow since China’s president Xi Jinping assumed the presidency.

The U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China – set up in 2000 to monitor human rights and the development of the rule of law in China – said that it saw “a disturbing deterioration in human rights and rule of law conditions that pose a direct challenge to U.S. national interests and U.S.-China relations,” Reuters said.

“By nearly every possible measure, China today is more repressive and more brutal,” said U.S. Senator and Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who co-chairs the commission, according to CNN.

It also criticised Beijing’s treatment of ethnic minorities.

The report warned that Hong Kong’s unique rule of law is under attack, and that attacks on journalists has contributed to the steady erosion of press freedoms.

A spokesperson for China’s foreign ministry said US officials must be more objective. “This report has nothing new, embraces a persistent bias in order to make irresponsible remarks about China’s domestic affairs, and makes criticisms that don’t accord with the facts,” Hua Chunying said. “China’s 1.3 billion people have the greatest authority to pass judgement.”
