Joe Biden condemns Beijing's treatment towards Uyghur Muslims

Washington: Putting pressure on China, U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden condemned Beijing's treatment of its Uyghur Muslim minority.

Biden even described China's treatment on Uyghur as 'genocide'.

"The unspeakable oppression that Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities have suffered at the hands of China's authoritarian government is genocide and Joe Biden stands against it in the strongest terms," his campaign said this week as quoted by Voice of America.

Cornered worldwide over the Covid-19 fiasco, China is now fuming after yet another setback as the United States  earlier this year passed a legislation to punish the Chinese crackdown on Uyghur Muslims.

US President Donald Trump had signed a new bill which will allow his country to impose sanctions on Chinese officials who are involved in detaining more than one million Uighurs and members of Muslims minority in the Chinese autonomous territory of Xinjiang.

The law represents a broad bipartisan commitment by the U.S. government to address one of the worst ongoing human rights crises in the world.
