US says China is committing "Genocide" against Uighurs and other ethnic minorities

The US State Department has announced that China is Committing a Genocide and crimes against Humanity in a Campaign between the Uighurs and other Ethnic Minorities in Xinjiang.

In statement that was made by the Outgoing Secretary,Mike Pompeo, He said "I believe this genocide is ongoing, and that we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy Uighurs by the Chinese party-state."

The Statement was made during the Final hours of the Trump administration.

But the Biden team had previously voiced its support for such a definition, labelling the repression of Uighurs genocide in August last year.

And although Joe Biden's nominee for secretary of state, Antony Blinken, has pledged to change a host of Donald Trump's foreign policy measures, he said that he also agreed with Mike Pompeo's determination.

While Pompeo was talking about crimes against humanity; He said "the arbitrary imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty of more than one million civilians, forced sterilisation, torture of a large number of those arbitrarily detained, forced labour, and the imposition of draconian restrictions on freedom of religion or belief, freedom of expression, and freedom of movement".

At a press conference held last week at the Chinese capital, The Communist Part official Xu Guixiang said: "This utterly untethered fabrication of 'genocide' regarding Xinjiang is the conspiracy of the century."
