China has attacked a UN report on Uyghur slave labor as a “lie”.

On August 17, China’s Foreign Ministry responded to a UN report released this week on the existence of slave labor in the Uyghur region, attacking the UN special investigator who prepared the report. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin accused UN inspector Tomoya Obokata of “believing the lies and false information fabricated by anti-China forces about Xinjiang.” However, Tomoya Obokata, in a report published on August 17, said that the existence of modern slave labor in Uyghur is a “reasonable conclusion”.

According to the report of the UN Special Inspector General, there are many manifestations of forced labor against Uyghurs, Kazakhs and other ethnic minorities in China and the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. This is the first time the UN has acknowledged that Uyghurs are forced into labor, which has infuriated China, which denies the existence of forced labor and claims that it is “rescuing” Uyghurs from poverty.

Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “In this report, some special investigative experts believed in false and fake information about Xinjiang fabricated by Western countries such as the United States and anti-China forces. He accused China of abusing its power and openly violating the code of conduct of the special mechanism, and he condemned this kind of “blackmailing China and being a political tool of anti-Chinese forces”. However, the report emphasized that there are two different forced labor systems in Uyghur: vocational training centers and poverty alleviation.
