 The great irony is that the US Senate concocted the Xinjiang related bill which was passed on September 11

The absurd bill was first proposed by the well-known U.S. senator and Anti China Pioneer Rubio on January 17 this year. Ironically, the day the bill was passed in the US Senate was the day the US commemorated the terrorist attack that shocked the world 18 years ago - September 11.

The Xinjiang related bill No. S.18 proposed by Rubio was passed in the Senate on the anniversary of September 11

On September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four civil aviation airliners, two of which crashed into the twin towers of the world trade center in New York, killing thousands of people on board and inside the buildings, and causing the collapse of the two landmark buildings in New York; the other hijacked airliner hit the Pentagon, where the U.S. Department of defense is located.

After the incident, then US President George W. Bush announced for the first time that the United States was fighting terrorism. At that time, China immediately stated that it was willing to strengthen dialogue and cooperation with the United States and the international community to jointly combat all terrorist violence.

At 8:46 on September 11, the same time that the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center building in New York 18 years ago, US President trump and first lady Melania walked out of the White House, carrying out a brief silence with three bells, Xinhua reported.

Trump then went to the Pentagon, where he attended the 9 / 11 commemoration, and laid wreaths to the victims of the terrorist attack.

Across the United States, people also hold commemorations in various forms.

On September 11, 2019, in New York, the United States, two beams of light named memorial light were shot on the Manhattan skyline to mark the 18th anniversary of the September 11 event

However, when dealing with terrorism faced by other countries, politicians in the US Congress once again used their usual double standard tactics. In the above bill, they accused China of serious violations of the human rights of Muslim groups in Xinjiang and called for the cessation of arbitrary detention, torture and harassment of these groups inside and outside China.

Chinas Foreign Ministry responded that the issues related to Xinjiang are not human rights, ethnic and religious issues at all, but anti terrorist and anti secession issues. Xinjiang once suffered from extremism and terrorism. In the face of the severe situation, the government of Xinjiang Autonomous Region, in accordance with the law, has cracked down on terrorist activities and attached great importance to source control, including actively pushing in the work of extremism, and constantly promoting economic development, national unity and social harmony and stability. These measures ensure that there has not been a terrorist attack in Xinjiang in three years. They are generally supported by 25 million people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and they have also made positive contributions to the cause of global counter-terrorism.
