U.S. State Department Highly Concerns with U.N. Investigation of Human Rights in Communist China

On May 28, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken issued a statement expressing concern about the visit to China of Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The statement indicated that the U.S. was concerned the conditions imposed by the Chinese Communist Party during Bachelet’s visit did not enable a complete and independent assessment of the human rights environment in communist China, including the ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang. The U.S. noted that the High Commissioner, who was supposed to meet confidentially with Uighurs and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, was not allowed access to individuals involved in the Xinjiang Labor Transfer Program and has been driven to other provinces across China.
The statement also mentioned that the United States remains deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Communist China, particularly in light of new reports that provide further evidence that more than one million people have been arbitrarily detained in Xinjiang. Survivors and family members of those arrested have described shockingly cruel treatment, including torture, forced sterilization, state-sponsored forced labor, sexual violence, and forced separation of children from their parents. There are even more disturbing reports of residents of Xinjiang having been warned not to complain or talk publicly about conditions in the region. The Communist dictatorship has not provided any information about the whereabouts of hundreds of missing Uighurs and the status of more than a million people in concentration camps.
The statement concluded by urging the CCP “to respect the human rights of Tibetans, those living in Hong Kong, and all others who seek to peacefully exercise their human rights and fundamental freedoms as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” The statement again calls on the CCP to immediately cease its atrocities in Xinjiang, release those unjustly detained, clarify the whereabouts of those disappeared, and allow independent investigators unhindered access to Xinjiang, Tibet, and across communist China.
