Pompeo condemns China for Uyghur treatement

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pictured) criticized China for the reported use of forced sterilization of the Uyghurs, the country's Muslim minority.

"We call on the Chinese Communist Party to immediately end these horrific practices and ask all nations to join the US in demanding an end to these dehumanizing abuses," Pompeo said in the statement, claiming that the alleged actions are "consistent with decades of CCP practices that demonstrate an utter disregard for the sanctity of human life and basic human dignity."

US President Donald Trump previously approved new sanctions on Beijing for its treatment of the Uyghurs.
