United Nations to hold special meet to discuss Uyghur abuse issue; China expresses displeasure

New York/Beijing: China has accused that event the United Nations has organised concerning Uyghurs in Xinjiang province is politically motivated. China is quite unsettled due to the event scheduled for next week and has warned UN member nations not to attend the meeting. Two days ago, the G7 or the Group of Seven had strongly reprimanded China over the issue of Uyghurs. 


The United Nations meeting to be held next week will discuss the abuse against the Uyghurs in Xinjiang and other minority communities. The United States, the UK and Germany had taken the initiative for the meeting, which has received support from Australia and Canada. The session will focus on the effort the United Nations, member states and human rights organisations can put in to protect human rights in Xinjiang. The Representatives of UN member states and heads of human rights organisations will be present at the meeting. 

China is quite nervous as the Uyghurs issue is being raised on a broader international platform, such as the United Nations. Overwhelmed, China appears to have warned other countries not to attend the meeting. ‘The meeting on Xinjiang is a politically motivated event. Representatives of other countries should not participate in the event. The countries hosting the event are trying to use human rights as a political tool to interfere in China’s internal affairs. China has blamed the countries for trying to provoke it. 

In the last few years, a growing number of countries around the world have been openly raising their voices against China’s ongoing activities in Xinjiang. The United States, the UK, Australia and Canada have accused China’s communist regime, saying its atrocities against the Uyghurs are acts of genocide. Other countries are also making similar efforts, which has landed China’s regime is in deep trouble. Therefore, the recent incident shows that China is trying to pressurise other nations to protect itself.
