The oppression of Muslims was 'the culmination of decades of repression of religious adherents' in China ,' said Daniel Nadel , a senior official in the US State Department's Office of International Freedom.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Chinese government has turned its western Xinjiang province into essentially an 'open-air prison,' a U.S. State Department official said on Wednesday as the department published a report that criticized China 's persecution of religious minorities . Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in January said that China 's actions in Xinjiang constitute crimes against humanity and genocide, a verdict his successor, Antony Blinken , has said he agrees with.

22 hours agoChina looks to Turkmenistan for more gas as it cuts Australian suppliesChina is looking to Turkmenistan to expand natural gas supplies as it cuts back on Australian energy imports. Wrapping up a meeting with his Turkmen counterpart Rashid Meredov and the country’s deputy prime minister Serdar Berdymukhamedov in Xian on Monday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said cooperation on natural gas was the “ballast stone” of the bilateral relationship. “China sees Turkmenistan as a long-term cooperative partner on natural gas, and is willing to formulate a comprehensive cooperation plan with the Turkmenistan side with a future-oriented perspective,” Wang said, according to a foreign ministry statement on Monday night.Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world?

The ministry said China and Turkmenistan agreed to “further consolidate and expand cooperation in natural gas, and create a full industry chain strategic partnership in the energy sector”. Wang also said China and Turkmenistan should also create new “engines” for cooperation beyond resources, such as trade, investment, connectivity and technology. China aims to further cut energy imports from Australia as bilateral relations continue to sour. At least two of China’s small liquefied natural gas importers were instructed by government officials not to make new purchases from Australia over the next year, Bloomberg reported on Monday. Diversifying gas and oil imports to ensure energy security is also a cornerstone of the country’s latest five-year development plan, which runs until 2025. China sends ‘warning shot to Australia’ as patience wears thin Turkmenistan is the biggest supplier of natural gas to China, and the Turkmenistan-China gas pipeline, also known as the Central Asia-China gas pipeline, is a signature project of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, a vast global infrastructure development project. Since the pipeline opened in 2009, China has imported over 240 billion cubic metres of natural gas from Turkmenistan, supplies that account for over 70 per cent of China’s total imports, according to a report by the State Grid Corporation of China in December. But the relationship has not always been smooth. In 2018, China and Turkmenistan were embroiled in a dispute over the price and supplies of the resource, prompting Turkmenistan to dramatically cut flows to China. China-Australia relations: Beijing ‘indefinitely suspends’ high-level economic dialogue with Canberra But the levels gradually recovered the next year. Australia accounted for around 46 per cent of China’s LNG imports last year, according to industry data. “As the tensions with Australia escalate, China needs to beef up energy imports from Central Asia to ensure its overall supply,” said Sun Qi, an international relations specialist at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences. Meanwhile, in a phone call with his Turkmen counterpart Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov on Thursday, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for joint efforts to lift the strategic partnership between the two sides to new levels by expanding cooperation in various sectors including aerospace and vaccines.More from South China Morning Post:China to boost natural gas production and trim imports, despite glut and pandemic-induced price slump, top distributor saysChina-Australia tensions ratchet up unease in Beijing about surging iron ore pricesChina-Australia relations: Beijing ‘indefinitely suspends’ high-level economic dialogue with CanberraThis article China looks to Turkmenistan for more gas as it cuts Australian supplies first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2021.
