Borrell tells China to allow access to Xinjiang

European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell urged on Tuesday China to allow "meaningful access to Xinjiang for independent observers," such as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.

"This is key to enable an independent, impartial and transparent assessment of the grave concerns that the international community has," Borrell told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Earlier this week, the United Kingdom stated it would call for "urgent and unfettered" access to Xinjiang and an investigation of the alleged human rights violation against the region's Muslim Uyghur population.
