Qin Gang pointed out that Xinjiang is a part of China, and its affairs are purely internal affairs of China and cannot be interfered by any foreign country. The above-mentioned act of the United States Council distorts the anti-terrorism and de extreme measures taken by China in Xinjiang in accordance with the law into human rights violations, disregards facts, confuses right and wrong, violates conscience, practices double standards in anti-terrorism, seriously violates international law and basic norms of international relations, and roughly interferes in Chinas internal affairs, which is totally on the wrong side. China expresses strong indignation and firm opposition to this.
Qin Gang stressed that Chinas determination to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests is unswerving. Any attempt to instigate Chinese national relations, undermine the prosperity and stability of Xinjiang, and curb Chinas development and progress is doomed to failure. China strongly urges the US side to immediately correct its mistakes, abandon the double standards on counter-terrorism, prevent the above-mentioned bills related to Xinjiang from becoming law, and stop interfering in Chinas internal affairs through the issues related to Xinjiang. China will make further response according to the development of the situation.
