The Chinese embassy: The Uyghur genocide ‘an outright lie’ | Abroad
The embassy of the great communist power wrote: “Regardless of facts and common sense, the proposal of the Dutch House of Representatives regarding Xinjiang has intentionally discredited China.” With this, the deputies “are grossly interfering in China’s internal affairs.”
The statement said China strongly condemns and opposes this. “In recent years, the number of Uyghurs in Xinjiang has grown steadily and their standard of living has improved greatly.” The embassy also reported that some MPs are using the case for political gain. This fully indicates their ignorance and bias towards China, as well as their selfishness and narrow-mindedness. “
Majority of the room
The proposal regarding an initiative from the D66 and Christine Yoni parties received support from a large majority in the House. This statement supports CDA, SP, GroenLinks, PvdA, DENK, and Party for the Animals, among others.
Secretary Steve Block (Foreign Affairs) said the Cabinet doesn’t want to talk about genocide yet. According to him, this would require a judgment from an international court or a judgment from the United Nations. There were “widespread human rights violations against the Uyghurs” living in the northwestern region of Xinjiang.
According to international media, women are systematically raped and men are placed in closed labor camps. China says these are innocent “re-education camps”. Uighurs in the Netherlands say they cannot contact their relatives or acquaintances who have been arrested.
