China must shift Uyghur policy to take part in global politics - Pompeo

China needs to change its policies towards Uyghurs, a Muslim minority in the Xinjiang province, if it wants to take part in global affairs, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hinted.

"The human rights violations in Xinjiang must stop. Our sanctions on the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corporation and two of its officials make clear to China: if you want to participate on the world stage, you can’t engage in behavior like this," Pompeo said in a tweet.

The top US diplomat went on to say China must stop "forced labor" and "forced abortions" in the region as he stressed that US companies have been asked to stop any cooperation with China that is linked to the alleged human rights abuses.
