US Calls On allies To Speak Up Against China’s Abuses Of Uighurs

Biden administration said on Friday that it was rallying its allies and partners to speak with one voice in condemning China’s human rights abuses of Uighurs in Xinjiang and the repression in Hong Kong. President Joe Biden, who assumed presidential office on January 20, has endorsed a determination by Trump that Beijing is committing genocide against Uighur Muslims.

While talking to the news reporters, US State Department’s spokesperson Ned Price added that the US must be prepared to impose costs on China for its actions in Xinjiang, its crackdown against the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and continuing threats towards Taiwan.


It comes a week after the Human Rights Watch claimed in a report that Beijing had been cracking down on the Muslim minority population by handing them long prison time over dubious charges. Michelle Bachelet, the UN’s human rights chief last week blasted reports of ill-legal detentions of Uighurs, including cases of sexual violence as well as forced labor. He further called on the world authorities for an open investigation into the situation.

Previously, the US State Department has maintained that Beijing has committed several crimes in Xinjiang province and continues to detain more than one million Uighurs. During Friday’s press conference, Washington also criticized China’s decision to revamp Hong Kong’s electoral system and called it an assault on the city’s autonomy and its democratic process.

Earlier that day, Beijing introduced legislation that would toughen its grip over the territory by making changes into its electoral committee that elect’s the territory’s leader. Price said that the United States condemned the continuing assault on democratic institutions in the city and added if such a step is implemented it would drastically undermine Hong Kong’s democratic process.
