Anthony Blinken announces punishment for Chinese officials involved in transnational crackdown on Uyghurs  The U.S. State Department has decided to impose visa bans on those who played a role in China's transnational crackdown on March 21. The statement, signed directly by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, said:  "Our State Department will take action against the Chinese Republic's crackdown on minorities and religious minorities, religious and clergy living in and outside China, including the United States."  "The United States has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating" Similar, baseless allegations concerning China's intelligence have been made more than once. We pledge to protect human rights around the world and to promote accountability through all diplomatic and economic measures. "  The move by the US State Department has been welcomed by human rights activists and organizations in the United States. Mr. Nuri Turkel, Vice President of the US International Religious Freedom Commission, described the decision as "the first step in enacting the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, which is a law in the United States." He acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Chinese officials, but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer.  The statement from China said, "We want the Chinese government to impose a visa ban on Chinese officials abroad, including those living in the United States, members of the opposition, human rights activists, journalists, believers and others who are believed to have been involved in the crackdown." Mr Nuri Türkel also noted that the idea was to protect private information, as well as to tempt all Chinese officials.  A statement from the US State Department said, "The rescue squad wasn't called for him."  "We once again call on the government of the People's Republic of China to end its transnational crackdown. In particular, we urge China to end its efforts to silence American Uyghur activists, the Uyghurs serving the American people, and to stop these Uyghurs from leaving their families in China. "  The statement added that the Chinese government "strongly supports those who speak out in spite of the threat of retaliation against the Chinese government." We call for an end to the Chinese government's crackdown on genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, its repressive policies in Tibet, its crackdown on fundamental rights in Hong Kong, as well as human rights abuses. We will continue to work with the international community to promote the accountability of Chinese government officials for their role in atrocities and human rights abuses in China, the United States and the rest of the world. "  The Uyghur Human Rights Project in the United States has prepared a report on the issue of Uyghurs in the United States and other countries facing Chinese cross-border pressure. In a written statement issued today, they congratulated the US State Department on taking practical steps. Peter Irwin, a researcher at the institute, told our radio that the oppression of the Uyghurs was not only within China, but also a matter of great concern to democracies, such as the United States. "It simply came to our notice then.  "It simply came to our notice then. In this sense, it is important for the United States to recognize this issue and take the first step toward resolving it. " The Uyghurs' oppression of China across the border exists not only in the United States, but also in European countries, Turkey, Canada, Australia, and Japan. "At the same time, the governments that are talking about what is happening in East Turkestan should also be fully aware of the oppression of the Uyghurs, even if they are on their own soil, and take appropriate action."  Shortly before the U.S. State Department announced the decision on the Uyghurs, the Burmese army officially declared the genocide against the Rohingya a "genocide" through a special press conference held at the Jewish Genocide Memorial in the United States.   U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken also spoke at the conference about the massacre of Uighurs. "In recent weeks, when I have talked to diplomats from all over the world about the Ukraine issue, they have expressed their support for the Ukrainian people and their commitment to not forgetting the atrocities in other parts of the world," he said. Like Xinjiang, for example, the Chinese government continues to perpetrate genocide and crimes against humanity against Uighur Muslims and other minority groups. . . . Staying in line with the victims of the atrocities brought me here today. As Secretary of State, one of my responsibilities is to decide whether or not to commit atrocities on behalf of the United States. . . . In addition to the Jewish genocide, the United States had identified seven genocides. Today, I have identified the eighth of them as the Burmese army committing genocide against the Rohingya and crimes against humanity. "  The U.S. government, which is currently working to end Russia's aggression against Ukraine, has reportedly held talks with the Chinese side on the issue, with China supporting sensitive issues such as the Uyghur issue and the Taiwan issue. This has raised eyebrows among some observers as to whether the Uyghur issue will be sidelined. Mr. Nuri Turkel stressed the importance of the time and place factor in the State Department's March 21 statement, stating that the Uyghur issue is a long-term issue in US foreign policy and that the above concerns are unfounded.
