Liz Truss, the new British Prime Minister, “there may be hope for the Uyghurs”

Liz Truss, one of the main candidates for the new prime ministerial election that started after the resignation of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, became the new Prime Minister of England.

Mrs. Liz Truss, who was originally the Foreign Secretary of Boris Johnson’s government, nominated herself for the position of Prime Minister after the resignation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He was officially appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on September 5 after receiving the most votes in the Conservative Party.

Ms. Liz Truss, 47, said during her tenure as foreign minister and in her election campaign speeches that she would pursue tougher policies toward China as prime minister. In addition, Ms. Liz Truss is reported to have promised party insiders that she would declare the Chinese government’s atrocities against Uighurs as “genocide.”

On September 5th, after it was confirmed that Mrs. Liz Truss was elected as the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Luke de Pulford, a British political researcher and the chief coordinator of “International Parliamentary Cooperation on China Affairs” tweeted, “Today is a very important day for Uyghurs.” “Maybe,” he wrote. He explained this in a speech to our radio station.

“During her campaign for Prime Minister, Ms. Liz Truss said she would officially recognize the genocide against the Uyghurs. I think this is very important. Because nothing like this has happened in England yet. If this turns out to be true, it will be a truly historic event. “Lady Liz promised she would.”

Mrs. Rahimah, a British Uyghur activist intellectual and representative of the World Uyghur Congress, said that Liz Truss paid special attention to Uyghur issues even during her tenure as Foreign Minister, and she even wanted to meet Uyghur representatives directly.

Ms. Rahima said that although it is too early to say that the British government will officially recognize the Uyghur massacre after Liz Truss becomes the prime minister, she believes that she will treat the Uyghur issue more specifically than Boris Johnson and she will strengthen her work to make it happen.

Liz Truss was known for her scathing campaign speeches about the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party. The prime minister promised that he would take strong action against Beijing and deal with China’s growing international influence. He also stopped short of calling China a “systemic competitor” for the UK and called it a “threat” to Britain’s national security.

According to the news of “Nikki Asia” published in Japan, Mrs. Liz Truss promised to admit the “Uyghur genocide” and declare China as a “threat” to the UK to those who are strict against China in the party. .

Luc de Pulfort also said in his speech that there may be a change in the UK’s China policy. He said:

“Yes, it looks very likely that a Liz Truss-led government will make a big change in China policy. We will see this clearly in the coming days. But in any case, I believe that he will take a tougher policy than the Boris Johnson administration, which was very soft on the threat posed by China.

Mrs. Liz Truss, who is hailed as “Iron Woman” in the field of British politics, won more votes than her main rival, Rishi Sunak, the British finance minister, because of the changes she promised to the UK both in terms of politics and economy, and her victory was welcomed in the UK.

At a time when leaders of all countries are sending their congratulations to Liz Truss’s new government, the “China Daily”, which is considered the voice of the Chinese government, expressed their dismay at the election of Liz Truss as Prime Minister. “One of Truss’ campaign statements was the possibility of declaring China a ‘national security threat’ to the UK,” the English-language “Hitai” newspaper said in an editorial on Monday. Attempting to divert attention from domestic politics by exaggerating China’s threat and blaming other countries is like an old-fashioned game of political actors. He wrote, “It is useless except to expose the incompetence of these politicians in terms of governance.”

US President Joe Biden congratulated Liz Truss’ victory on Twitter today, September 6, saying:

“I want to deepen the special relationship between our two countries and deepen our cooperation against global challenges, including Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.”

The World Uyghur Congress also said in a statement on Twitter today that Ms. Liz’s election as the British Prime Minister “may be a hope for Uyghurs.”
