The US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, denounced the sanctions imposed by China on US officials in connection with the crisis of the Uyghur minority, saying that those sanctions were “baseless.”
The US minister’s words came after the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced that two members of the US Committee for International Religious Freedom, Gail Munchen and Tony Perkins, in addition to Canadian Representative Michael Chung and the Canadian Parliamentary Committee for Human Rights, are now banned from entering the Chinese mainland, Macao and Hong Kong.
Blinken considered that the sanctions against the two members of the American Committee on Religious Freedom were “baseless.”
The European Union, Britain, Canada and the United States imposed, in a coordinated move, sanctions on many political and economic Xinjiang officials, prompting Beijing to respond by imposing sanctions on officials from the European Union, Britain and the United States.
