The White House and the State Department responded to the UN report on the Uyghurs

The US government has responded to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights’ report on the Uyghurs, calling on the Chinese government to immediately stop its atrocities against the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities.

US White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said on Thursday that she welcomed the report of the UN Human Rights Commission on Wednesday, August 31, and said that the atrocities against the Uyghurs should be stopped immediately. “We call on China to immediately stop this brutality and to allow independent investigators full and unhindered access to the region,” he said.

On September 1, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken also responded to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights’ report on the Uyghurs, saying, “This report confirms our concerns about the genocide that the Uyghurs are facing.”

On August 31, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights finally released its report on the Uighurs: “The Chinese government’s arbitrary arrest and torture of Uighurs and other Muslims, abuse of women and making them sterile, destroys families, destroys parents and children. Separation from each other may constitute an international crime, that is, a crime against humanity.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken issued a special written statement on September 1: “We welcome the release of this important report, which describes the appalling treatment and abuse of Chinese Uyghurs and other minority ethnic groups by the U.S. government,” he said. The report deepens and confirms our concerns about the genocide and crimes against humanity committed by Chinese government agencies against the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities and converts in Xinjiang.”

Anthony Blinken stressed that the United States is always concerned about the Uyghur issue and continued: “We will work closely with our partners, as well as with non-governmental organizations and the international community, to seek justice for the victims. We will investigate the responsibility of the defendants. “We will continue to hold the People’s Republic of China accountable and demand that China release those wrongfully detained, reveal the consequences of those who have disappeared, and allow independent investigators full and unhindered access to Xinjiang, Tibet and elsewhere.”

The U.S. government first declared the Chinese government’s atrocities against the Uyghurs as “genocide and crimes against humanity” in January 2021.
