STATE DEPARTMENT - The United States is accusing authoritarian governments around the world of suppressing people with severe human rights "violations and abuses" to control any activities that might threaten their power.
"Experience teaches that government officials who oppress, abuse, and tolerate the denial of the human rights of their own people are also responsible for creating social environments that are ripe for both economic and humanitarian crises, and that encourage corruption, violent conflict, and terrorism," said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a statement Wednesday unveiling the 2019 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.
