BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) — The United States was responsible for many humanitarian disasters around the world, according to the Record of Human Rights Violations in the United States in 2019, which was released on Friday.

The United States had been engaged in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen, causing enormous civilian casualties and property losses, said the report issued by the State Council Information Office.

The report said the United States hindered the International Criminal Court (ICC) from carrying out its duties to investigate the alleged war crimes committed by the United States, threatening the ICC staff with fund freeze and economic sanctions.

It pointed out that the economic embargo against Cuba and the unilateral sanctions against Venezuela imposed by the United States had been a massive and flagrant violation of the human rights of people in these countries.

The report also said that the United States withdrew from several multilateral mechanisms, including the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Global Compact on Migration, shirking off its international obligations and making troubles to the international governance system.  ■
