US President Joe Biden has said that China has to pay a price for human rights abuses. The US president made the remarks in response to a question about the persecution of the Uighur Muslim minority in China’s western Xinjiang province.
Qatar-based Al-Jazeera reports.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has come under fire around the world for allegedly depriving Uighur Muslims of “re-education camps” and for violating various human rights. Asked by Biden on a television program on Tuesday, he said: “Look, China will see the reaction and he (Jinping) knows it well.”
Joe Biden said the United States would play a new role in human rights issues. He also said that work would be done with the international community to protect China’s minorities.
“China wants to be a world leader,” Biden said. And to become that, they also need to build the confidence of other countries. As long as they are involved in basic human rights work, it will be difficult for them to achieve that. Source: Al-Jazeera
