China: Human Rights
The Australian government is deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Xinjiang. We urge China to cease the arbitrary detention of Uygurs and other Muslim groups in Xinjiang. We will continue to raise our concerns directly with the Chinese government and through the UN Human Rights Council and we would welcome the opportunity to assess the facts of the situation in Xinjiang ourselves. We will continue to advocate for Australian citizens with the Chinese authorities.
