WASHINGTON: April 22, 2021 – The UK’s parliament voted on Thursday to endorse a motion charging China and the Chinese Communist Party of committing crimes against humanity and genocide in its treatment of ethnic Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in East Turkistan.

Thursday’s motion was submitted by Nusrat Ghani, a Conservative member of parliament who the Chinese government recently sanctioned for her work on this issue. It is non-binding and passed by a unanimous voice vote.

The East Turkistan Government welcomes the bi-partisan effort of the U.K. Parliament in formally recognizing the humanitarian crisis faced by Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples of East Turkistan.

“We thank the House of Commons for declaring China’s genocide in East Turkistan,” Prime Minister Salih Hudayar said.  “We urge Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the UK Government to support our case against China at the International Criminal Court, grant refuge and expedite asylum for Uyghurs and take meaningful actions to end this genocide swiftly.  

The East Turkistan Government in Exile continues to call on other democratic nations across the world, including the EU, Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and India, to also recognize the genocide occurring in East Turkistan.

The East Turkistan Government in Exile is also calling on the governments of Australia, Canada, the European Union, India, Japan, and the U.K. to grant refuge to Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples fleeing genocide in East Turkistan.
