Xinjiang government criticises US, says forced labour claim is ‘card played by anti-China forces’

The Xinjiang government criticised the US over its forced labour accusations and said it welcomed United Nations officials to visit the region to “see the real situation”, in the latest bid to defend heavy-handed policies in Xinjiang amid growing international pressure.

A panel of 10 men, including Xinjiang government officials and industry representatives, reiterated familiar attacks against the United States and the West during a two-hour press briefing in Beijing on Thursday, saying accusations of forced labour of ethnic minority groups in Xinjiang were “pure fabrications”.

Xu Guixiang, spokesman for the Xinjiang government, said forced labour claims were a “card played by anti-China forces in the West” in an attempt to disrupt the region’s stability and to contain China’s development.
