In the wake of serious human rights violations against Uyghur minorities in China, the World Uyghur Congress (WUC) said that it is about time that the situation of Uyghurs should be discussed at the UN Security Council and the human rights council.
The Vice-President of WUC called for strict actions and not just statements and reports amid the deteriorating situation of the Muslim minorities in China and the atrocities against them. “I wish to see actions, not just statements, reports, or “concerns” only.”The #Uyghur matter should be discussed at the UN Security Council and the Human Rights Council.” WUC Vice President, WUC posted on Twitter. Earlier on Thursday, the European Union’s (EU) foreign policy chief Josep Borrell welcomed a UN report on what it called a “rigorous review” of evidence suggesting systemic abuse of Muslim minorities in China.
The report released by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said that Uyghurs in the Chinese province of Xinjiang and other predominantly Muslim groups were routinely placed in reeducation camps where they were subjected to torture, rape, forced labor, and abortion.
