Senior UN Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, who is visiting Communist China, has so far made no official statement on the Xinjiang issues. A diplomatic source who participated in a May 25 video conversation between the senior Commissioner and Xi Jinping told Bloomberg that Bachelet believes the trip to Communist China is aimed at “promoting, protecting and respecting human rights” rather than conducting an investigation, and that if expectations for the trip are too high, it will lead to “disappointment. “.

In addition, Bachelet’s visit was organized in a “closed loop” manner, which means that the Senior UN Commissioner for Human Rights would only participate in small official meeting organized by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Previously UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was determined that the UN human rights chief would make a credible visit to Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. What Antonio promised is not happening.

Uighur Linguist Abduweli Ayup, who lives in exile in Norway, told Deutsche Welle that while the Communist China is unlikely to let Bachelet know the truth about the Xinjiang detention camps, Uighurs abroad still want her to be on the right side of history. Ayup said Uighurs would have more international support if Bachelet were to say publicly that what happened in Xinjiang was true, or partly true. Ayup said, “I do not like UN. It is not powerful, but it’s important as it’s the only one. I hope she can make a difference.”
