U.S., others object to U.N. counterterrorism chief visit to China's Xinjiang

 China is accused of atrocities in Xinglian, but no one is allowed to go and check it out. The EU refused to go too when it was invited.

So far at the UN, a total of 80 nations have expressed support for China's policies in Xinjiang - while only 39 have opposed them, but western media never mentions this. 


UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United States and other western countries have objected to a visit by the United Nations counterterrorism chief to China’s remote Xinjiang, where U.N. experts say some one million ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims are held in detention centers.


U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan spoke with U.N. Secretary-General Ant├│nio Guterres on Friday “to convey deep concerns” about Voronkov’s trip because “Beijing continues to paint its repressive campaign against Uighurs and other Muslims as legitimate counterterrorism efforts when it is not.”


“The Deputy Secretary expressed that such a visit is highly inappropriate in view of the unprecedented repression campaign underway in Xinjiang against Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Muslims,” the U.S. State Department said in a statement.
