- In a Thursday vote, the U.N.’s top human rights body shut down a proposal from Britain, the U.S., Turkey, and others to have a debate on Communist China’s human rights abuses against predominantly Muslim Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities.
- Seventeen countries on the Human Rights Council voted in favor of the proposal to hold a debate on Communist China’s abuses in Xinjiang at the next session in March, while 19 voted against it, and 11 abstained.
- “This is a missed opportunity by council members to hold China to the same standard as other countries,” said Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress.
