China says US politicians no show at virtual meeting on Xinjiang province

China complained on Friday that "some US politicians" did not show up at a virtual briefing on Xinjiang province which “exposed their hypocrisy.” 

“China had invited some US politicians who claim to care about human rights in Xinjiang to attend Thursday’s video press meeting held by the Chinese Embassy in the US,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a news conference in Beijing.

The virtual briefing was organized after a US House of Representatives panel heard alleged atrocities against Uyghurs.

Wang termed it as “presumption of guilt” and “an anti-China farce,” according to Chinese daily Global Times.

China's alleged erosion of religious, cultural, and human rights for more than 1 million ethnic Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang in the last decade has enraged western countries, prompting sanctions against Chinese officials and firms.

Officials are accused of putting Uyghurs into concentration camps which China defines as re-education and training centers. Beijing vehemently denies rights violations of its citizens.

Beijing also demanded that Japan address “serious concerns” raised by the international community for its disposal of nuclear wastewater from the crippled Fukushima Nuclear Plant into the sea.

“Stop erroneous policies and practices that endanger the global marine environment and international public health security,” Wang said, addressing Tokyo.

He said China hopes Japan will “accept the substantive participation, verification, and supervision of the international community on the disposal of nuclear wastewater.”/aa
