UN team in China ahead of human rights chief’s visit to Xinjiang

Geneva| A UN team has arrived in China ahead of the long-delayed visit of the UN human rights chief to Xinjiang. Human rights groups and some Western governments allege that the Chinese government is massacred and persecuted by the Uighur Muslim minority in Xinjiang.

The UN Human Rights Office said on Tuesday that its personnel arrived in southern China on Monday to prepare for the visit of High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in May. “The advance team of five is initially spending time in Guangzhou, where it is in isolation under anti-COVID-19 travel rules,” spokeswoman Liz Throsel said.

Bachelet announced in March that her office had reached an agreement with the Chinese government that she could visit China’s far-western province of Xinjiang.
