On May 24, it was reported, the U.N. Human Rights Chief agreed to visit Communist China was a mistake because of concerns that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Government’s restrictions on her visit could undermine censorship of Beijing’s human rights record, the U.S. State Department said on Tuesday.
During the six-day visit that began Monday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle M Bachelet, who will visit the Xinjiang region in western China, said last year that most Muslim Uighurs are believed to be illegally detained, abused and forced to work.
The U.S. has dubbed their treatment “genocide,” but Beijing denies all abuses.
U.S. State Department Spokesperson Ned “We have no expectation that the PRC (People’s Republic of China) will grant the necessary access required to conduct a complete, unmanipulated assessment of the human rights environment in Xinjiang,” Price said at a regular news conference.”
“We think it was a mistake to agree to a visit under the circumstances,” Price said, adding that Bachelet was unable to fully understand the “of the atrocities, the crimes against humanity, and genocide” in the region.
Asked if Xi Jinping, the leader of the CCP, was responsible for these human rights abuses, Price said it was “hard to imagine” that the top echelons of the Chinese Government were unaware of this.
He added that media reports on Tuesday that public security bureaus in two counties in Xinjiang leaked thousands of photos and documents added to Xinjiang’s “lready damning body of evidence.”
Bachelet called for unrestricted access to Xinjiang, but the CCP’s Foreign Ministry said her visit would take place in a “closed loop,” referring to a way to isolate people to prevent the possible spread of the CCP virus (COVID-19).
The CCP initially denied the existence of any internment camps, but later acknowledged that it had established the necessary “vocational training centers” to curb what it called terrorism, separatism and religious radicalism in Xinjiang.
