ISLAMABAD: China has highly appreciated the outright support extended by Pakistan and other countries on the issues relating to Xinjiang and Hong Kong.
During weekly news briefing, Hua Chunying, spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry stated that we want to express our appreciation to Pakistan and all these countries for speaking out for justice.
Their support has once again proved that justice will always prevail and a small number of western countries who attempted to smear China under the pretext of Hong Kong and Xinjiang issues failed again, she added.

By far, 57 countries have co-signed a joint statement on Hong Kong-related issues and 48 countries have made a similar joint statement on Xinjiang, she told.
Hua Chunying highlighted that Pakistan and Cuba have spoken on behalf of these countries in support of China’s formulation and implementation of the law on safeguarding national security in the HKSAR.
She stated that these countries commended China’s measures taken in accordance with law in Xinjiang to combat terrorism, radicalization and protection of human rights for all ethnic groups.
These countries also expressed their firm opposition to politicization of human rights issues, application of double standards, groundless accusations against China, and unjustified interference in China’s internal affairs.
While giving policy statement, official stated that China firmly opposes any individual, country and force in creating instability, division and chaos in China and in interfering in China’s internal affairs under the pretext of human rights. (With input from INP)
