Storyline


China urged some Western countries to stop groundless accusations against China on human rights issues and interference in China's internal affairs, said a foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Thursday.

Geng made the urge at a press briefing when commenting on a letter by 22 countries to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, urging China to stop detention of Uygur people in Xinjiang.

Geng said: "Ignoring facts and truth, the letter by related countries groundlessly accuses, attacks and smears at China, brazenly politicizing human right issues and rudely interfere in China's internal affairs. China is strongly dissatisfied with and resolutely opposes it. We have already lodged stern representations with relevant countries. We urge these countries to respect facts, discard bias, strictly abide by the purposes and principles enshrined in the UN Charter, and stop politicizing human rights issues, and stop interfering in China's internal affairs on the pretext of Xinjiang issue."

He stressed that Xinjiang affairs are purely China's internal affairs, concerning China's sovereignty, security and territorial integrity. The Chinese government and Chinese people have the best say on the Xinjiang-related issues and it brooks no interference by any other country or external force.

"Facing the stern threats from terrorism and extremism, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has taken a series of counter-terrorism and de-extremism measures, including setting up vocational education and training centers and turned the table on Xinjiang's security situation. There have been no violent terrorist attacks in Xinjiang for more than two years. It enjoys social stability, solidarity among all people and improving living standards. People of all ethnic groups there feel more secure, have a greater sense of fulfillment and contentment and support various measures by the government," said Geng.
