Representatives of more than 110 countries urged the United States to eliminate all kinds of discrimination based on race, religion and gender, combat hate speech and religious intolerance, reform the judiciary, eliminate police violence, change the policy of isolating migrant children from their parents, and protect the right to health of the public during epidemics. They also suggested that the U.S. should return to the Paris Agreement on climate change and ratify the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and other international human rights conventions as quickly as it can. Meanwhile, countries including China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, Venezuela and Syria urged Washington to immediately lift all unilateral sanctions and embargoes on developing countries, stop carrying out torture in its anti-terrorism moves and end its practice of interfering in others' internal affairs on the pretext of human rights.
