WASHINGTON – The Belgian Parliament voted on Tuesday and passed a motion recognizing China’s atrocities against Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in East Turkistan as crimes against humanity and warned of a “serious risk of genocide,” following the Czech Senate’s motion declaring China’s action as genocide.
The East Turkistan Government in Exile praises the Belgian people and their Parliament for recognizing the Chinese Government’s atrocities against Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in East Turkistan, as genocide and crimes against humanity. Belgium’s Parliament became the sixth Parliament across the globe to declare China’s atrocities in East Turkistan as genocide.
“We thank the Parliament of Belgium for recognizing China’s atrocities against Uyghurs and there Turkic peoples in Occupied East Turkistan (so-called “Xinjiang”) as genocide,” said Prime Minister Salih Hudayar of the East Turkistan Government in Exile. “We call on the European Parliament and all free nations across the globe to follow suit,” he added.
The East Turkistan Government in Exile is calling on all governments and parliaments to take meaningful actions to bring an end to this ongoing humanitarian crisis by boycotting the Beijing 2022 Olympics, granting refugee to Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples fleeing genocide,
