Canada’s anti-China propaganda has fallen flat.
Out of political purposes, a small group of Western countries, Canada included, attempt to spread disinformation and lies to frame China at the Human Rights Council, said Chinese Mission spokesperson Liu Yuyin, noting that China will fight back resolutely any injustice and trespasses done to it.
It is learned that Canada will lead in making a Xinjiang-related joint statement at the interactive dialogue on the annual report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights at the 47th session of the Human Rights Council on June 21.
In response, Liu said that the attempt of Canada is nothing but a repeat of their usual trick of using human rights as a political tool, which is bound to be rejected by the international community and doomed to failure.
The 47th session of the Human Rights Council is scheduled to begin on June 21 and end on July 13. Topics on China’s Xinjiang region are not listed in the released agenda. The Global Times has learned that Western countries, including Canada are working hard to insert Xinjiang-related topics to the session, attempting to maintain the “fever” and attention to accuse China for lies of “genocide.”
“As one of the US’ anti-China henchmen, Canada has acted aggressively recently, especially in hyping Xinjiang-related topics and its attempt to lead the joint statement at the session of the Human Rights Council is one of those moves,” Jia Chunyang, an expert at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, told the Global Times on Friday.
With ties frozen between China due to its arrest of Huawei’s chief executive officer Meng Wanzhou, Canada is eager to win more bargaining chips in talking with China, Jia said, noting Canada’s moves include hyping Xinjiang topics at the UN Human Rights Council, passing a motion attacking Xinjiang, and even calling for a relocation of the Olympics from Beijing as well as leading a coalition of the US and other countries in a non-binding denunciation of “arbitrary detention” referring to China’s arrest of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.
“Apparently, Canada has made a wrong decision and its moves to pressure China will end with no good. There is no genocide in China’s Xinjiang as the international community has known and except for some Western countries, the majority of developing countries will not follow with their allegation against China,” Jia said.
“China will make no compromise on issues related to its core interests, for example the Xinjiang related ones. Neither will China alter its laws to free foreign law-violators,” Jia said, noting that what Canada needs to do currently is to repent its own genocide history and sincerely apologize to indigenous people it has killed.
Despite grave and shocking human rights violations within their own borders, countries including Canada have never taken any substantive actions to address the violations. For them, human rights is nothing but lip service or a tool to attack others, said Liu.
The recent discovery of the remains of over 200 indigenous children at a Canadian boarding school is yet another reminder of Canada’s historical atrocities of killing the indigenous people and eradicating their culture. Over 150,000 indigenous children in Canada were forcibly taken away from their parents and sent to boarding schools, where at least 4,000 children died of unnatural causes. Until today, people of Asian and African descent in Canada are still suffering from systemic racial discrimination, and rights of migrants are wantonly offended.
“We would like to once again warn these countries that Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong are inalienable parts of China, and the Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong related issues are purely China’s internal affairs which brook no interference by any external forces,” said Liu, noting that China is also a country that upholds principles and has its bottom line.
“We stand firm and will never tolerate interference in China’s internal affairs, vilification of China or infringement on China’s interests. Canada and the countries concerned are advised to immediately halt their dangerous act, stop political manipulation of Xinjiang-related issues and stop provoking confrontation at the Human Rights Council. We will fight back resolutely any injustice and trespasses done to us,” said Liu.
The spokesperson also said that Xinjiang has made remarkable achievements in economic and social development and in the field of human rights. At present, Xinjiang enjoys social stability, peace and economic prosperity. People there are leading a safe and enjoyable life. However, certain countries are simply not happy to see prosperity, stability and development in Xinjiang.
“These countries all have embassies in China. How come that their ambassadors and diplomats have no idea of the truth in Xinjiang? Or they simply choose to be the man pretending to fall asleep,” Liu said.
Liu noted that China has extended invitations on a number of occasions to these ambassadors to visit Xinjiang, but on each occasion, they declined with one excuse after another, and failed to make the trip to this date.
“Why are they so scared to go? Obviously, what they really care is not facts and truth, but how to slander and frame China in every possible way under the pretext of Xinjiang-related issue. What they have done will not gain any support and won’t go anywhere,” said Liu.
