UN in ‘serious negotiations’ with China about letting observers into Xinjiang province: Antonio Guterres


‘There must be due process and full respect’ for Canadian detainees’ rights, says UN secretary general The United Nations is engaged in a “serious negotiation” with China about granting UN officials access to China’s western Xinjiang province — the scene of what many Western nations have called a campaign of genocide directed by Beijing against the Muslim minority Uyghur population. “A serious negotiation is, at the present moment, taking place between the Office of the High Commissioner [for Human Rights] and the Chinese authorities,” UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told CBC chief political correspondent Rosemary Barton in an interview airing Sunday on Rosemary Barton Live. “I hope that they will reach an agreement soon and that the human rights high commissioner will be able to visit China without restrictions or limitations.”
