“Turning a blind eye to these facts and truth, the United States and some other countries had fabricated and spread numerous lies and rumors, in an attempt to smear China, undermine Xinjiang’s stability and contain China’s development,” he said. “It is a typical example of political manipulation and the gravest violation of the human rights of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang.”
Chen further stressed that so far, all country-specific resolutions of the Human Rights Council are aimed at developing countries, and the United States and some other countries, in disregard of their own serious human rights violations, are indulged in pointing fingers at others.
“This is typical double-standards. The international community must not allow any attempt to politicize or instrumentalize human rights issues, with a view to preventing multilateral human rights bodies from serving the political goals of certain countries,” the Chinese ambassador said.
