STORYLINE
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet today (23 May) began a six-day official mission to China, at the invitation of the Government. This is the first country visit by a UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to China since 2005.

During her visit, the High Commissioner is meeting a number of high-level officials at the national and local levels. The High Commissioner will also meet with civil society organisations, business representatives, academics, and deliver a lecture to students at Guangzhou University.

In Guangzhou, Bachelet met with Foreign Minister and member of the State Council, Wang Yi. At the meeting the High Commissioner said, “I look forward to the exchanges I will have with many different people during my visit. I will be discussing some, very important issues and sensitive issues. I hope this will help us build confidence. And enable us to work together. In advancing and promotion and cooperation on human rights in China, but also at the global level.”

An advance team of five has been in the country since 25 April to prepare for the High Commissioner’s visit. The team initially spent time in Guangzhou, where they conducted virtual meetings while in quarantine in line with COVID-19 travel requirements. Following quarantine, the team undertook meetings and visits in Guangzhou before travelling to the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

After Guangzhou, Bachelet will visit Kashgar and Urumqi.
