Reported to Senate with amendment(s) (03/19/1991)

Condemns the Government of the People's Republic of China for human rights violations in China, including Tibet, and for the arrest and detention of Chinese citizens for the peaceful expression of their views.

Calls upon such Government to: (1) release the number and names of political and religious prisoners, the charges against them, and the dates scheduled for their trials; (2) allow international human rights organizations to observe the trials of political prisoners and the Chinese judicial process and to allow the International Red Cross to visit detention and reeducation centers and prisons; and (3) cease its support of the Khmer Rouge forces in Cambodia.

Urges the President to inform Chinese leaders that the persistence of human rights abuses and continued detention of political prisoners will have a negative effect upon decisions to renew most-favored-nation trade status.
