Amnesty International welcomes statement at Human Rights Council addressing China’s appalling violations in Xinjiang
Amnesty International welcomes a statement issued by a group of 22 countries at the UN Human Rights Council this week, expressing concern over the arbitrary detention, surveillance and other violations against Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Amnesty International reiterates its own call for China to provide independent human rights monitors immediate and unfettered access to Xinjiang. If China fails to respond positively to this request, the Council should take more robust action at future sessions.
