The Uyghur Committee asked MPs to recognize Australia’s “Uyghur massacre”.

Mr. Mehmet, who received an interview about this meeting, said: “We met with three senators in the Australian Parliament to introduce the Uyghur issue and present our demands with a 6-member committee of the Australian Uyghur Association. One of these is the leader of the Liberal Party, Mr. Simon John Birmingham. He previously served as Australia’s Minister of Education, Business and Finance. Another person we met is Mr. Jordon Steele-John, the head of foreign affairs of the Green Party. Another MP we met was Mr James Patterson. This person is a member of the International China Affairs Parliamentarians Association. This person knows and supports the Uighur issue very well. The man was not allowed to enter China because he spoke out in the Australian Parliament about China’s human rights abuses. All of these members of parliament are from the opposition parties, but the role is very important.

Mr. Mehmet stated that he gave information about human rights violations in this meeting and said: “We gave information about the current serious situation of the Uyghurs to the three members of parliament we met and presented our demands to them. All of these are aware of the Uighur Genocide and the report released by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. The leader of the Liberal Party, Mr. Simon John Birmingham, called a press conference on the Uyghurs a day before the report was released. In his statement, he demanded that China immediately release those who are not imprisoned in prison camps, and bring to justice Chinese officials who are committing crimes against humanity in the Uyghur region. “I think this press release is very important.”

Mr. Mehmet stated that on behalf of the Uyghurs, he presented five demands to the members of the Australian Parliament. He said: “We asked the MPs we met for the following. The first is Australia’s recognition of the 9 countries that have recognized the massacre of Chinese Uighurs. We asked that a special number should be given to Uyghurs in the policy. We also brought the issue of Uyghur immigrants to the Australian Minister of Immigration a week ago. Another is to ask the Chinese in Australia to stop the various threats they are making to the Uyghurs. Mr. James Patterson, MP, has taken a special interest in the matter and said he would do what he could. “Overall, our meeting went very well.”

After the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights released a year-delayed report on the Uyghurs, the Australian Uyghur community made such a request, the first in Australia. Mr. Mamet Obul, the president of the Uyghur Association, said that the report on Uyghurs by the United Nations had a great impact on the members of parliament, and that they were particularly concerned about the Uyghur issue.

The Uyghurs who participated in the event in Australia said that some political parties and members of parliament may present a draft resolution on the Uyghur massacre.
