Washington: US President Barack Obama on Friday strongly criticized China`s human rights record at a joint summit appearance with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.

"I expressed in candid terms our strong view that preventing journalists, lawyers, NGOs, and civil society groups from operating freely or closing churches and denying ethnic minorities equal treatment are all problematic, in our view, and actually prevent China and its people from realizing its full potential," he said.
