BEIJING — U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour will visit China over the coming week to help Beijing make progress on human rights-related issues, the United Nations said in a statement.

Arbour will visit China from Monday through Friday to sign an agreement with Chinese officials on "facilitating" China's ratification of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The covenant is a 29-year-old agreement that calls on nations to let their people freely determine their political status and not be arbitrarily arrested. It has been signed by 152 countries.
