A bipartisan U.S. congressional commission has called on Hilton Worldwide not to allow its name to be associated with a hotel project on the site of a mosque bulldozed by authorities in China’s Xinjiang region, where Washington says minority Muslims have been victims of genocide. The site of the project is defined as “emblematic of the Chinese government’s campaign of widespread destruction of Uyghur religious “
“The site is,” the letter said, referring to minority Uyghur Muslims and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
The letter, a copy of which was made available to Reuters, was co-signed by the senior Congressional-Executive Commission on China Republicans, Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Jim Smith.
Hilton Worldwide did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comment.
