Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl wrote a letter to Chinese Ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming, stating that his government’s treatment of Uighur Muslims is analogous to Nazi Germany.
“China risks squandering its achievements and sabotaging its own legacy if it fails to learn the lessons of history,” van der Zyl added.
“The World will neither forgive nor forget a genocide against the Uyghur people.”.
The letter concluded with a call for the Chinese government to release Uighur Muslims from the concentration camps and allow the camps to be investigated.
When the BBC pressed Xiaoming about the video, he said he didn’t know where the news outlet got the video.
“Uighur people enjoy peaceful, harmonious coexistence with other ethnic groups of people.”.
The United States announced sanctions against various Chinese government officials on July 9 because of their treatment of the Uighur Muslims. »
