Statement by the Spokesperson on the situation in Xinjiang. 发言人关于新疆局势声明

The revision by the Chinese authorities of the "Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region Regulation on De-extremification" highlights the deteriorating human rights situation in Xinjiang. There are credible reports of mass detentions in political "re-education camps" affecting Uighurs and other minorities; of mass surveillance; of restrictions on travel; and of Uighurs abroad allegedly being returned to China involuntarily.

These revisions run counter to the recommendations provided by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which call on China to change its policy in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region.

In this context, the EU expects China to respect freedom of religion or belief, and freedom of expression, as well as the rights of persons belonging to ethnic or national minorities, as guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which China is a signatory.

发言人关于新疆局势声明

中国政府对《新疆维吾尔自治区去除极端化条例》的修订,凸显了新疆人权状况的恶化。 据可靠报告称, 政治“再教育营” 的大规模拘留、 监视和旅行限制对新疆的维吾尔族和其他少数民族产生了影响, 据称在国外的维吾尔族人被非自愿地谴返回中国。

这些修订违背了联合国消除种族歧视委员会提出的建议,该建议呼吁中国改变其在新疆维吾尔自治区的政策。

在这种情况下,欧盟希望中国遵守其签署的《世界人权宣言》及《公民权利和政治权利国际公约》所保障的宗教或信仰自由、言论自由以及属于少数民族或少数群体的权利。
