The Chinese Foreign Ministry said that the information about the content of the Uyghurs in “re-educational camps” is not confirmed in any way and does not correspond to reality. The Chinese authorities argue that Xinjiang-related issues are not human rights issues, not ethnic or religious issues, the Xinjiang issue is about violence, terrorism and separatism. Xinjiang often becomes an occasion for criticism of China on the international stage. For example, the United States regularly accuses Beijing of violating human rights by organizing a system of labor camps against Muslims in Xinjiang. The State Department calls the situation with respect to the national and religious minorities in Xinjiang “terrifying” and accuses Beijing of “turning the region into a prison camp.” The United States annually includes China in the list of countries violating religious freedoms. Beijing denies the accusations and accuses the US of hypocrisy.
