State secretary Sullivan calls UN for 'immediate, unhindered, and unmonitored' access to Xinjiang. FMTNews

NEW YORK: The United States led more than 30 countries on Tuesday in condemning what it called China’s “horrific campaign of repression” against Muslims in the western region of Xinjiang at an event on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly that was denounced by China.

Sullivan said Tuesday’s event was co-sponsored by Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and Britain, and was joined by more than 30 UN states, representatives of the European Union and more than 20 nongovernmental organisations, as well as Uighur victims. Paola Pampaloni, deputy managing director for Asia of the European External Action Service, said the EU was “alarmed” by the situation and also urged “meaningful” access to Xinjiang.

He reiterated his comments in a speech to the General Assembly gathering of world leaders on Tuesday. “Volume is coming up at a pace that we hope that the Beijing government recognises not only US but the global concern about this situation,” David Stilwell, US Assistant Secretary, Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs told reporters at a briefing.A representative for the Chinese delegation to the UN General Assembly accused Washington of violating the UN Charter by criticising China.

He said there were also many reports that the Chinese government forces detainees to renounce their ethnic identities as well as their culture and religion.
