'Close to genocide': US slams China on atrocities in Xinjiang

Oct 17, 2020 15:00 IST

The US national security advisor said on Friday that China was perpetrating "something close to" a genocide with its treatment of Muslims in its Xinjiang region. "If not a genocide, something close to it going on in Xinjiang," Robert O'Brien told an online event hosted by the Aspen Institute, news agency Reuters has reported. The United States has denounced China's treatment of Uighur and other minority Muslims in Xinjiang and imposed sanctions on officials it blames for abuses.
