After the Cold War, the role played by the American congress in the diplomatic field is constantly increasing. The great concern of the Congress became a great impetus to the U.S. human rights diplomacy in the post-Cold War. The U.S. Congress has always taken a tough stance on human rights issues of China, and has repeatedly accused the administrative department who always take weak human rights policy toward China. The U.S. Congress should not be a neglected factor to relax the conflict of human rights between China and the United States.The United States is a country whose public power is divided into three parts and Congress is the legislative body. In foreign affairs, Congress has various powers endowed by the constitution. Congress restrains the U.S. administration’s foreign policy by several means of intervention, such as legislation, oversight, and public opinion and so on. In recent years, the U.S. Congress has more participated in the policy-making process to China, and behaved more actively. China has always been regarded as a "non-democratic and totalitarian state", and existed a serious occurrences, so-called" human rights violations". The members of the U.S. Congress unanimously advocated to take tough measures on human rights to China, link human rights with the MFN status of China and actively participate in the Tibet issue.Each Congress would submit a large number of anti-China proposals, of which proposals on human rights in China occupy a large proportion.It strengthened contact and understanding between China and America by some members of Congress visiting to China and inviting Chinese officials to visit the United States. But the U.S. Congress overally played a negative role in human rights diplomacy towards China. Therefore, China should fully understand the importance of the U.S. Congress in the U.S. human rights diplomacy to China and carry out more exchanges with the U.S. Congress to downgrade the resistance of the Congress in Sino-US relations.
