LONDON, July 3 (Xinhua) -- A delegation of China's largest national non-governmental organization in the field of human rights wrapped up its visit to Britain on Tuesday after meeting with politicians, researchers and senior lawyers in the country.

The China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) delegation held symposiums with Alex Pinfield, Head of East Asia Department of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Champa Patel, Head of the Asia-Pacific Program at Chatham House, Lord Davidson of Glen Clova and Lord Garnier at House of Lords and attended a roundtable discussion organized by the Great Britain China Center in their four-day visit.

Head of the delegation Fu Zitang, CSHRS vice-president and also president of Southwest University of Political Science and Law, told Xinhua that the visit aims to enhance mutual understanding between the Chinese and British sides in the field of human rights and also to reduce misunderstanding.

He said the delegation introduced to the British side the latest achievements of China's human rights protection and development.

"China has combined the universal principle of human rights with the country's reality and found a route suited to its own national conditions," he said.

The British side welcomed the delegation and appreciated China's remarkable achievement in poverty reduction, hoping to conduct deeper and more extensive discussion and cooperation with China.

The delegation will also visit Greece.
