Original title: Italian scholars claim that there is no evidence for Western accusations on Xinjiang. Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Words of justice, worthy of respect from all walks of life
[Global Times-Global Network Report, Reporter Wang Panpan]On June 29, 2021, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin hosted a regular press conference. Part of the content is as follows.
Q: Recently, the Italian Institute of Politics, Society and Economics, the Italian Institute of International Diplomacy, and the Italian Eurasian Mediterranean Research Center jointly released a research report entitled “Xinjiang: Understanding Complexity and Building Peace”. Fabio Massimo Palandi, an Italian international relations scholar who was responsible for organizing the writing of the report, said that he had witnessed the full freedom of religious belief of Uyghurs and other minorities in Xinjiang, and could not find anything about the so-called ” For signs of “forced labor” and “genocide”, the West has no evidence for allegations of the Xinjiang issue. What is China’s comment?
A: I have also noticed this research report written by several independent researchers and signed by dozens of internationally renowned scholars, politicians, and journalists. Also noticed that the Italian international relations scholar Palandi who organized the report said recently that some think tanks, scholars and media in the West concocted false reports and unwarranted allegations about Xinjiang, causing serious negative effects. These people and institutions are all Public anti-China individuals and organizations whose so-called reports are packaged as independent reports. Western governments have accordingly introduced sanctions against Xinjiang, but these measures have no basis. The purpose of these measures is not to protect human rights at all, but to suppress and contain China. . Because of this, Parandi and other scholars decided to write a report that was as objective and independent as possible to help the international community realize that Xinjiang was deeply endangered by terrorism and extremism. The anti-terrorism and de-radicalization measures adopted by the Chinese government in Xinjiang are It is based on the rule of law, respect for human rights, and protection of the legitimate rights and interests of the parties, and has achieved remarkable results. This is the righteous word of a scholar and deserves respect from all walks of life.
In addition to this report, I also noticed that a few days ago, British political and international relations analyst Tom Fody published an article stating that the attitude of Western countries and the media on the issue of Muslim treatment is hypocritical. On the one hand, they have no remorse for the crimes committed by the United States and its allies in the Islamic world over the years; on the other hand, they groundlessly accused and constantly hyped the so-called “Xinjiang human rights issue” and tried to induce Islamic countries to criticize China. Standards are ridiculous and untrustworthy.
What I want to emphasize again is that facts speak louder than words. The Xinjiang-related lies concocted by a few people will eventually be exposed by the truth and facts about Xinjiang’s booming economic and social development and the happy lives of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang.
