BEIJING, July 7 (Xinhua) -- China presented its second report on the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights to the United Nations on June 30, said a news release by the Foreign Ministry Wednesday.

The report gave a comprehensive account of China's achievements in promoting and protecting its citizens' economic, social and cultural rights in recent years, according to the news release.

The report also answered questions raised by relevant departments of the UN when they reviewed China's first implementation report.

Submitting the report is an important move China has made toward human rights, said the press release. "The act shows the Chinese government has always valued human rights and has all along advocated international cooperation on human rights issues."

The covenant, one of the most important international human rights instruments, was entered into force with respect to China on June 27, 2001.

The Chinese government submitted its first implementation report to the UN on the covenant in June 2003.
