Amid their heated anti-China smear campaign over “human rights”, the Western countries are trying to play up any “human rights issue” in Xinjiang by means of a “special court for Uygur”.
The so-called court recently held a hearing to prosecute the Chinese government for being connected with “human rights violation” and “extinction of ethnic group” in Xinjiang.
The point is that the “special court” is a mere private firm registered in a country and therefore the “witnesses” are not legally liable for their false testimonies.
Reporting the news, foreign media described the court as a puppet manipulated by the West.
China is denouncing the Western countries for manoeuvring to smear the country by such a despicable method.
A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry stated that the “special court” has nothing to do with the law and is nothing more than an anti-China fabrication.
He disclosed that its major financier is the “world congress of Uygur”, an anti-China organization which incites division, and the chief justice is a notorious international human rights dealer who has a close connection with anti-China forces.
He asserted that no matter how hard the anti-China forces try to orchestrate the frame-up, China including Xinjiang would achieve more excellent progress and the international community would raise its voice to demand they take an objective and impartial approach to Xinjiang.
In reaction to the West’s smear campaign, China has taken such positive countermeasures as to introduce the human rights situation in Xinjiang and its progress and the government of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region recently sponsored an international exchange meeting to give publicity to the social and economic development in the region.
The meeting held in the way of video conference was attended by officials of the Chinese government and Xinjiang, diplomatic envoys of more than 60 countries, officers from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, representatives of non-governmental organizations and journalists, about 100 in all.
In the meeting a film was screened on the theme of the campaign to alleviate poverty in Xinjiang and a speech was made by the vice-president of the people’s government of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region who is also member of the standing committee of the regional committee of the Communist Party of China.
He said that Xinjiang is now consolidating and developing the successes made in the campaign to alleviate poverty and promoting the development of xiang and villages in an all-round way in order to make the people benefit from the achievements and further enrich the life of the people of different ethnic minorities.
He dismissed as an absurd lie the argument that “concentration camps” have been set up in Xinjiang and there exist large-scale “forced labour” and “racial annihilation”, saying that the Xinjiang people resolutely object to and condemn the allegation.
In the meeting diplomatic envoys from different countries asserted that as the issue of Xinjiang belongs to the internal affairs of China, the international community should jointly reject the attempt of Western countries to interfere in China’s internal affair on the pretext of the issue.
