“The Secretary-General has read the assessment that clearly identifies serious human rights violations in the Xinjiang region of China. The assessment done by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights also confirms what the Secretary-General has been saying on Xinjiang for quite some time, that human rights must be respected and that the Uyghur community needs to be respected and may feel it belongs to the country as a whole without discrimination. The Secretary-General very much hopes that the government of China will take on board the recommendations put forward in the assessment by the High Commissioner for Human Rights. The assessment also underscores the importance of the independence of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.”
