China Hits Back at U.S. Human Rights Bill, Brings Up America's 'History of Blood and Tears of Native Indians'


December 20, 2019

Beijing has back at the House of Representatives' passage of a bill criticizing China's treatment of its Uighur ethnic minority, recalling the United States' own history of systematic purges.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chinying said her government stood "strongly indignant at and firmly opposed to" the Uighur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019. The proposed law accuses Beijing of "gross violations of universally recognized human rights, including the mass internment of over 1,000,000 Uighurs"—a predominantly Muslim group mostly located in the northwestern Xinjiang province.
