Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Remarks
2021/03/23

We strongly oppose the so-called statement on Xinjiang made by the Australian Foreign Minister today. The allegations, in disregard of facts and based on disinformation and lies, are unwarranted attacks against China and out of pure political manipulation. They once again fully expose the deep-seated ideological prejudices and the despicable tactic of smearing China on the Australian side. Such attempt is entirely futile. Our commitment to national sovereignty, security and development interests remains firm and strong. We urge the Australian government to stop vilifying China, refrain from meddling in China’s internal affairs and cease to apply double standards on human rights. We call on Australia to reflect upon and address its own problems, in particular the killings of innocent civilians by Australian overseas military personnel, the worsening situation of racial discrimination, the long-standing insufficiency in the protection of the rights of aboriginal peoples as well as the inhumane treatment of detainees in the off-shore detention centers.
