(Global Times) Strong and effective retaliatory measures should be adopted against relevant personnel and companies of the US after Washington announced a series of decisions concerning Xinjiang, Chinese experts urged, noting the US move will have very little impact on China as achievements Xinjiang has made in recent years are obvious.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday announced visa restrictions on Chinese officials "believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, the detention and abuse of Uyghurs, Kazakhs, or other members of Muslim minority groups" in Xinjiang.

It follows the Trump administration's move on Monday which blacklisted 28 Chinese public security entities and companies allegedly involved in the surveillance and detention of minority groups.

The US moves prompted many Chinese experts to urge stronger and effective countermeasures against the US.

The economy is our trump card against the US, said Ni Feng, a deputy director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences' Institute of American Studies, citing China's own unreliable entity list as an example.

Another anonymous expert based in Beijing said that China is also mulling a blacklist of entry restrictions on relevant people and companies from the US. "Individuals and institutes who have bad records on China's issues will be included on the list," the expert said.

Broad criticism

The US moves also received wide criticism from Chinese and foreign experts on Xinjiang affairs.

If the US targets a country, concepts like human rights and freedom would only be used as political tools, said Erkin ncan, a Turkish journalist who reports on Xinjiang, saying that the US puts forward the human rights card when it comes to issues with China. The reason for this is obvious. The issue of human rights is part of the US' anti-China agenda, just as the US has "brought democracy" to the Middle East.

Shu Hongshui, deputy dean of the anti-terrorism law department at the Northwest University of Political Science and Law, denied that Xinjiang suffers from so-called human rights abuse.

"It's another approach that the US adopts to contain China's rise," Shu said.

Visa restrictions on Chinese officials seriously violate the basic norms of international relations, interfere in China's internal affairs and undermines China's interests, said Geng Shuang, spokesperson of Foreign Ministry on Wednesday, noting that Xinjiang does not have the so-called human rights issue claimed by the US.

The Chinese Embassy in the US tweeted on Wednesday saying that "using human rights as an excuse, the US side has gone a step further today and announced visa restrictions on Chinese officials."

According to a white paper issued in July, Xinjiang's regional GDP rose from 791 million yuan ($117.91 million) in 1952 to 1.22 trillion yuan in 2018, an average annual growth of 8.3 percent. From 2014 to 2018, 2.31 million people including 1.89 million from southern Xinjiang, shook off the shackles of poverty. No terrorist attacks have happened in nearly three years.

Model program

In recent years, diplomats, scholars and journalists from many countries, including Russia, Pakistan, India, Thailand and Kazakhstan, have visited Xinjiang to have a first-hand experience of China's anti-terrorism efforts.

Many of them told the Global Times that Xinjiang's anti-terrorism and de-radicalization measures have helped international efforts in anti-terrorism, de-radicalization and human rights protection.

Yalini Saranya, a program officer at Bandaranaike Center for International Studies in Sri Lanka, who was among those who visited, told the Global Times that China's anti-terrorism measures, especially the vocational education and training centers, are very useful, and other countries can learn from them.

Saranya said he was amazed by the wide range of classes that the vocational education and training centers offer, such as make-up classes, electrician classes and tour guide classes, after she visited one center in Kashi, Southern Xinjiang in September.

By law, the anti-terrorism and de-radicalization measures adopted by China in Xinjiang are the concrete implementation of the UN Plan of Action to prevent violent extremism, and in full compliance with laws and the Constitution, which are in line with international practices, Shu said.

US officials and journalists just keep on criticizing China' policies on Xinjiang without verifying the facts, which shows that their true intention is not to help Xinjiang, He Zhipeng, a professor of international human rights and legal education at Jilin University, told the Global Times.

He said the decisions will have little impact on China. "Even US allies don't follow whatever the US tells them to do. Any deliberate or vicious attack on Xinjiang will backfire," He said.

"...so that they do not lick chicken from fast food!"

KFC very popular in cities such as Shenzhen, Fuzhou and Harbin. Nowadays there are many copycat fast food chicken franchises in China. No need for chopsticks !

WASHINGTON: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a television interview on Wednesday that China's treatment of Muslims, including the Uighurs, in western China was an "enormous human rights violation" and Washington will continue to raise the issue.
"This is not only an enormous human rights violation, but we don't think it's in the best interests of the world or of China to engage in this kind of behavior," Pompeo told PBS.




This very toxic fat chap could only spy, sabotage, raid, kill and destroy by stirring up troubles across the soils of foreign nations, in particular the Islamic or Muslim nationalities in the world ( most evilly and dirtily in the mid-east region ). He thought the Islamic or Muslim people are too easy to be fooled and sucked in by his extremely toxic mouth.


Just imagine how many millions of Muslim or Islamic people were and had been killed, injured and displaced by his toxic evil actions as chief of CIA over the years. That is his style and education to hurt, disrupt, deceive, lie, foment and devise killing methods as well as the torturing of captured / surrendered Islamic or Muslim suspects , prisoners-of-war and innocent folks. Don't forget all those " US's drones that killed and destroyed " in the Islamic world of Afghan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and several African Islamic / Muslim nations.

If any nation or people believes in him, that is the beginning of very ugly crisis points of hates and hatreds as  seen in Hong Kong, ( SAR) China! Whereas, Xinjiang folks of all religious backgrounds are enjoying prosperities in all beautifully progressed dimensions to the envies and jealousies of numerous similarly toxic US politicians such as R Marcos !

If he cannot even protect his own President Trump of the USA nor alert him of potential " whistleblowers" to harm his own boss, isn't he a really dumb dog standing next to the president of the USA ?
