UK rejects U.N. criticism of race reviewReuters | London | Updated: 19-04-2021 17:38 IST | Created: 19-04-2021 17:20 IST
Britain rejected criticism from UN human rights experts over its review into race inequality, with a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying their conclusions misrepresented the findings of the report.
"Our view is that this report misrepresents the findings. We remain proud of the UK's long history as a human rights champion and we encourage everyone to read the original report in full," the spokesman told reporters.
"This report in no way condones racist behavior and in fact, it highlights racism and inequality are still problems for our country."
