Pompeo calls China's treatment of Uighurs 'stain of the century'

The Chinese regime refers to the camps as "vocational centers" where Muslims learn "skills" necessary to integrate into the modern Chinese economy.

It was attended by delegates and civic representatives from 106 countries, the office said.

"They even mixed and colluded with cultists, which again exposed their ugly face and hypocritical features", added Geng. He warned authorities that "faith is breaking out all across China".

"For these people, religious freedom is an excuse and a tool for them to slander other countries, to destroy their religious peace and to interfere with their domestic affairs", the spokesman reportedly continued.

The Chinese Communist Party has targeted Uighur Muslims as well as Christians, Tibetan Buddhists and Falun Gong practitioners in its brutal campaign of "sinicization" to forcibly bring religion under its control, Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) stated in his remarks at the Ministerial on Wednesday.

Pompeo's isn't identifying those nations by name.

Citing Tsai's remarks, Kao said: "The religious freedom we enjoy in Taiwan is an integral part of our democratic way of life and one of the most important assets we can share with the global community", which is why Pompeo not long ago highlighted Taiwan as "a reliable democratic partner and a force for good in the world". "If you're here today and you're a country which has defied the Chinese pressure to come here, we salute you and we thank you".

OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7 get OxygenOS updates to fix camera issues
On the camera front, OnePlus claims to have improved the performance of camera mode while switching from front to back. The OxygenOS 9.5.10 is literally the same OxygenOS 9.5.9 update but with a fix for the "tap-to-wake" feature.

Speaking at a conference on religious freedom in Washington, Pompeo said, "China is home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time" and that "it is truly the stain of the century".

Both Secretary Pompeo and Vice President Pence announced funding for victims of religious persecution and actions the USA has taken to punish human rights abusers.

Beijing on Friday criticized US Vice President Mike Pence and top diplomat Mike Pompeo as "hideous" and "hypocritical" after they called for religious freedom in China at a major meeting in Washington. "I don't think any president's taken it as seriously as me".

"Survivors of religious persecution were present and shared their stories; these victims have endured prison sentences, mob violence and state-sanctioned terror", Pence stated on Thursday, the last day of the Ministerial.

"Those the United States invited to the so-called religious meeting include a member of the Falun Gong cult and some other people who have been smearing China's religious policy. This is a sheer interference in China's internal affairs", Lu protested.

"The Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied with this and resolutely opposes it".

The forum brought together governments, worldwide organisations, religious groups and other civil society representatives to discuss opportunities to promote and protect freedom of religion or belief internationally.
