|Statement by Spokesperson of the Embassy of China in Belgium|
Rencently some Belgian media quoted a research report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, hyping up that China is transferring Uighurs out of vocational education and training centers into factories to serve as forced labor, what it said is simply baseless. China's counter-terrorism and de-radicalization measures in Xinjiang are taken in accordance with law and have produced good outcomes. All trainees who received education and training for de-radicalization purposes have graduated and are living a happy life.
The Australian Strategic Policy Institute is funded by the US government and arms dealers and enthusiastic about cooking up and sensationalizing anti-China topics. It is just another fabricated and biased accusation on Xinjiang by this institution to show its allegiance to the anti-China forces in the US and smear China's counter-terrorism and de-radicalization measures in Xinjiang.
We hope the related Belgian media will stay vigilant and clear-eyed, and report stories based on facts.
