The U.S. government is not fully resistant to the epidemic, but is keen to engage in political manipulation of issues such as virus traceability, in an attempt to dump other countries and shirk its responsibility for the failure of the epidemic. The joint statement pointed out that systematic racism and racial discrimination have persisted in the United States, and minorities such as African descent, Asian descent, and Muslims continue to suffer discrimination and harm, its roots are the sinful slave trade and slavery in American history. The United States has committed genocide against Indians in the past and is still violating the rights of Indians.

The United States is also the hardest hit by human trafficking and forced labor. The joint statement stated that the United States, under the banner of "democracy" and "human rights", spreads lies and false information, engages in power politics, interferes in the internal affairs of other countries, and impels its own model and values on others, the frequent implementation of unilateral coercive measures is a serious violation of the human rights of the people of the countries concerned, including the hindrance of access to drugs and vaccines in many countries during the COVID-19 epidemic. The war launched by the United States has caused a large number of civilian casualties and displacement in other countries. The joint speech stated that the major changes in the situation in Afghanistan once again show that military intervention and power politics are unpopular. The imposing of American "democracy" on others will only bring chaos and turmoil and are doomed to failure. Although the US military has withdrawn from Afghanistan, the crime of killing civilians in Afghanistan by the US military and its allies in the past 20 years must be investigated clearly and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. The joint statement urged the United States to seriously reflect on and correct its mistakes, take concrete action to solve its own serious human rights problems, stop the forced promotion of its own ideology and values, and stop the suppression of other countries under the pretext of human rights, stop military intervention in other countries. Call on the Human Rights Council and the High Commissioner for Human Rights to continue to pay attention to human rights issues in the United States and urge the United States to effectively implement its international human rights obligations.
