China: Xinjiang practices human rights successfully

Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region is a "successful example" of practicing human rights in areas where ethnic minorities form the majority of the population, a report by the Chinese Council Information Office revealed on Thursday.

"China applies international labor and human rights standards in its legislation, policymaking, and policy implementation, to effectively safeguard workers' rights, according to the document titled Employment and Labor Rights in Xinjiang," the report read. "Local governments at all levels in Xinjiang promote full and high-quality employment for people [...] to achieve common development and progress among all ethnic groups."

Beijing recently came under fire for its alleged mistreatment of the Uyghur minority in Xinjiang, which resulted in the United States introducing a series of sanctions on China and its officials.
