The spokesperson of the Embassy of China in Switzerland refutes the statement of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs on the OHCHR’s so-called Xinjiang human rights assessment

The Chinese side has noted that the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs made a statement on Twitter on the so-called assessment of human rights concerns in Xinjiang by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). This statement completely ignores the basic facts  and wantonly interferes in China’s internal affairs. China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to it.

This so-called assessment is orchestrated and produced by the US and some Western forces and is completely illegal, null and void. It is a patchwork of disinformation that serves as a political tool for the US  and some Western forces to strategically use Xinjiang to contain China. The OHCHR fabricated the assessment based on the political scheme of  some anti-China forces outside China. This seriously violates the  mandate of the OHCHR and the principles of universality, objectivity,  non-selectivity and non-politicization. It once again shows that the  OHCHR has been reduced to an enforcer and accomplice of the US and some Western forces in forcing the developing countries to fall into line with them. The fact that this assessment, despite its illegality and zero credibility, did not go so far as to play up false allegations such  as “genocide”, “forced labor”, “religious oppression”and “forced  sterilization”shows that the lies of the century concocted by the US  and some Western forces have already collapsed.

Of all people, the people in Xinjiang, whatever their ethnic backgrounds, are in the best position to tell the world what the human rights  conditions are like in Xinjiang. In recent years, Xinjiang has enjoyed sustained economic growth, social harmony and stability, better living  standards, cultures thriving like never before, freedom of religious  beliefs and religious harmony. In Xinjiang, people from ethnic  minorities, religious figures, workers, and those who graduated from the  vocational and education training centers, among others, have  voluntarily written to the High Commissioner for Human Rights about  their own experience to present the real Xinjiang. International friends  who have been to Xinjiang said what they saw with their own eyes in  Xinjiang is completely different from what has been reported by Western media or portrayed by anti-China forces. More than 60 countries who care  about truth and justice have sent a co-signed letter to the High  Commissioner to express their opposition to the release of this untrue  assessment. Nearly 1,000 non-governmental organizations from across the  world and people from various walks of life in Xinjiang have written to  the High Commissioner to express their opposition. In recent years,  nearly 100 countries, including Muslim countries, have spoken up at the Human Rights Council, the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly and on other public occasions to support China’s legitimate position on  issues including Xinjiang and oppose interference in China's internal affairs in the name of so-called Xinjiang-related issues. They are the  mainstream of the international community. The US and some Western forces seek to destabilize Xinjiang and use it to contain China. This unjust, pernicious political agenda will not have people’s support and will only end in failure.
