CGTN: China hammers U.S. again

In today’s example of strained relations, CGTN explains why China has again responded to U.S. criticism.

China on Friday censured a U.S. Congressional hearing on the so-called human rights issues in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, saying that it is a deliberate effort of presumption of guilt, blatantly interfering in China’s internal affairs.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at Friday’s regular press briefing in response to the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs’ so-called hearing titled “The Atrocities Against Uygurs and Other Minorities in Xinjiang.”

The spokesperson stressed that Xinjiang-related issues are not about human rights, but about countering violent terrorism and separatism.
