Xinjiang security markedly improved in last 5 years - China

The stability in China's Xinjiang region has improved significantly during the last five years a report issued on Sunday by the People's Congress of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region said.

The focus of the local authorities has now moved from ensuring peace to improving the governance over the region, the report added, as translated by Global Times. "For five years in a row, there have been no cases of violent terror attacks, and criminal and public security incidents have continued to decline," the outlet claimed.

Earlier this week, the French parliament passed a resolution that recognizes China's activities against the Uyghur minority in the region as genocide.
