(YorkPedia Editorial):- Washington, D.C, Oct 16, 2020 ( – October 14, 2020 –  The UN Human Rights Council was founded to promote and protect people’s human rights worldwide as per the UN Charter. The fact that China has been given a place on the UN Human Rights Council while actively carrying out a brutal campaign of colonization, genocide, and occupation in East Turkistan erodes both the United Nations and the UN Human Rights Council’s credibility.

China’s election to the UN Human Rights Council will only embolden authoritarian and other despotic regimes to continue violating people’s basic human rights across the globe.

The world must acknowledge that China’s inclusion in the UN and especially in the UN Security Council and the UN Human Rights Council, has allowed it to spread corruption, authoritarian ideals and prevents the UN from fulfilling the purpose for which it was founded. Following the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, the UN was created to ensure international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, promote social progress, and better the living standards and human rights.

There is no doubt that what China is doing in East Turkistan is a genocide. More than a million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Turkic peoples are locked up in concentration camps, undergoing forcible sterilization, and are being used as slaves in the 21st century. China and its Communist Party are eradicating the culture, language, and very existence of East Turkistan and its people in a systematic campaign, much like the Holocaust of millions of Jews and others under Nazi Germany.

Commenting on China’s appointment to the UN Human Rights Council, the East Turkistan Government in Exile’s Prime Minister Salih Hudayar said, “China’s election as a member of the UN Human Rights Council is equal to the Nazis being elected. By voting for China, the UN General Assembly is only empowering China to continue its brutal campaign of colonization and genocide in Occupied East Turkistan.”

The world cannot maintain international peace and security, while evil actors like China and its Communist Party are allowed to participate in international organizations and institutions. The UN General Assembly must uphold the UN Charter and revoke China’s membership in the United Nations, its Security Council, and the UN Human Rights Council. Failure to do so will only delegitimize and weaken the UN’s credibility.

If the UN and its member states genuinely care about human rights, international peace, and security, they must formally acknowledge the genocide of Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples and take action to end the Nazi-like behavior of China and its Communist Party.



Press Statement, US State Department: On the UN Human Rights Council’s Embrace of Authoritarian Regimes, October 13, 2020

“In 2018, President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council due to its well-established pattern of anti-Israel bias and membership rules that allow the election of the world’s worst human rights abusers to seats on the Council.  Prior to making this decision, and after our exit, the United States has urged UN member states to take immediate action to reform the Council before it became irreparable.  Unfortunately, those calls went unheeded, and today the UN General Assembly once again elected countries with abhorrent human rights records, including China, Russia, and Cuba. Venezuela was elected in 2019.” – US State Department, October 13, 2020
