The spokesperson of the Chinese diplomatic mission criticized the accusations launched from Washington for the alleged violation of human rights by Beijing.
The spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in the United States, Liu Pengyu, told a TASS correspondent on Thursday that Beijing considers Washington’s statements on the alleged violation of the human rights of Uyghurs in the autonomous territory of Xinjiang as “interference” in its internal affairs, as well as as well as residents of Tibet and Hong Kong.
Declaring himself on a speech by the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, devoted to government policy to China, Liu told the Russian agency reporter that “issues related to Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong are exclusively China’s internal affairs.”
“The vile lies fabricated by the US side under the pretext of the so-called human rights are a flagrant interference in China’s internal affairs and a senseless sabotage of the international order,” said the spokesman for the Chinese Embassy.
- Blinken denounced that “genocide and crimes against humanity” are taking place in Xinjiang, assuring that “more than a million people were interned in detention camps for their ethnic and religious identity”, and criticized Beijing’s treatment of ethnic minorities in Tibet, as well as the “crushing of freedoms” in Hong Kong.
