The approval by the House of Representatives of the US Congress of a bill on human rights in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and the prospects for signing it will slow down the process of promoting Sino-US trade and economic negotiations. This was announced on Wednesday by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, Hua Chunying.
“Do you think that if the United States takes measures that undermine our interests, we will sit upside down?” She addressed the reporters at a regular briefing. “I think a retribution should follow. I would like to add that this will not go unnoticed for relations between China and the United States. ”
The Chinese Foreign Ministry expressed a strong protest to the United States over the promotion of the Xinjiang bill. “We demand that the US side immediately correct its mistake and stop the process of approving the relevant project,” the diplomat said. “China expresses strong discontent and decisive protest to the United States.”
According to the diplomat, the Chinese authorities have all the necessary leverage in order to take effective measures against Washington. Hua Chunying emphasized that on the issue of the situation in Xinjiang, Beijing will firmly defend its interests, as it relates to national security, stability and the successful development of China.
