China rebuffs Australian, U.S. accusations

Added On December 4, 2020

 A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Wednesday once again emphasized the basic facts after the Australian and U.S. sides accused China of "fabricating an image" and launched false allegations on Xinjiang-related matters.

Commenting on a graphic concerning the crimes committed by some Australian soldiers in Afghanistan, spokesperson Hua Chunying said the post was a graphic created with computer techniques by a young artist. The content was based on facts published in the Australian Defense Department's inquiry report and reported by Australian media.
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) HUA CHUNYING, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson
"If some in Australia cannot stand this graphic, then the truth depicted in online photos and videos can only be described as even more horrific."
In response to a U.S. official accusing China of "human rights abuses" in Xinjiang, Hua said the so-called "human rights abuses" in Xinjiang or "persecution of ethnic minorities" are "centenary lies" made by extremist anti-China forces, and Australia and the United States played disgraceful roles in this.
