China denounces G7, accuses the group of 'political manipulation'



China has accused the G7 of "political manipulation" after it criticised Beijing over a range of issues.


In a joint statement at the end of a three-day summit, leaders of the G7 countries made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, urged China to "respect human rights and fundamental freedoms" while also highlighting abuses against the Uyghur Muslim minority group and the crackdown on Hong Kong pro-democracy activists.


China has detained as many as a million Uyghurs and other Muslims and imprisoned hundreds of thousands more in its crackdown in Xinjiang, which began in 2017. There have been widespread reports of physical and psychological torture inside prisons and detention camps in the region. China denies the allegations.Latest Post
