Resolutely refutes Pompeo’s "lie of the century"
Xuekeliti Zakeer, Chairman of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region
Recently, former U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo issued a Xinjiang-related fallacy, disregarding facts and nonsense, falsely claiming that Xinjiang had committed "genocide" and "crimes against humanity" against Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities, and groundlessly attacked the Chinese government's Xinjiang policies. To deliberately discredit the good situation in Xinjiang and the happy lives of the people of all ethnic groups. This is a gross interference in China's internal affairs and a serious violation of international law and basic norms of international relations. I express my strong indignation and firm opposition!
Pompeo’s usual tactics are to "make a fuss" about Xinjiang and "tag a hat" on Xinjiang.
He spread a lot of false statements on Xinjiang-related issues, in order to provoke ethnic relations, undermine Xinjiang’s stability and hinder Xinjiang’s development, in an attempt to draw Xinjiang into its presupposed human rights trap, mislead international public opinion, smear China’s image, and block The pace of China's advancement can only confirm his inferior qualities and his sinister intention to interfere in China's internal affairs under the guise of human rights.
In the face of the fact of stable development in Xinjiang, Pompeo’s lies will surely be self-defeating; Pompeo’s poisonous release will surely be swept into the garbage dump of history with him; Pompeo’s frenzied behavior , Will be nailed to the pillar of shame in history!
In recent years, under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang have worked in unity and significant results have been achieved in Xinjiang’s work. Unprecedented achievements have been made in economic and social development and the improvement of people’s livelihood, and the people of all ethnic groups have continued to feel gain, happiness, and security. Enhanced.
We insist on maintaining social harmony and stability in accordance with the law, holding high the banner of the socialist rule of law, and insisting on “scratching with one hand and focusing on prevention with the other.” We not only severely crack down on violent and terrorist crimes in accordance with the law, but also pay attention to the implementation of source governance, to maximize the protection of the basic rights of all ethnic groups. Violated by terrorism and extremism.
At present, Xinjiang has not experienced violent terrorism cases for more than four consecutive years, realizing the yearning and expectation of people of all ethnic groups for safety and stability for many years.
We resolutely won the battle against poverty. We withdrew from 3666 poverty-stricken villages and 32 poverty-stricken counties, and 3.0649 million people achieved poverty alleviation. The “two no worries and three guarantees” were fully realized, and absolute poverty and the overall poverty of the four states in southern Xinjiang were basically Elimination, a decisive victory in the fight against poverty.
We insist on promoting high-quality economic development. From 2014 to 2019, Xinjiang’s GDP increased from 919.59 billion yuan to 135.71 billion yuan, an average annual growth of 7.2%; general public budget revenue increased from 128.23 billion yuan to 157.76 billion yuan. The average growth rate was 5.7%. With continuous improvement of infrastructure construction, all 14 prefectures and cities in Xinjiang entered the highway era.
We insist on continuous protection and improvement of people's livelihood, and each year more than 70% of the general public budget expenditures are used for practical things that benefit the people.
From 2014 to 2019, the average annual per capita disposable income of Xinjiang residents increased by 9.1%, achieving full coverage of nine-year compulsory education, three-year preschool education and twelve-year basic education in southern Xinjiang, and residents’ basic medical insurance participation rate reached 99.7%, all people enjoy free health check-ups, and development results benefit people of all ethnic groups more and more equitably.
We adhere to the brotherhood and mutual assistance of all ethnic groups, fully implement the party's ethnic policy, resolutely implement the ethnic regional autonomy system, fully respect the customs and habits of ethnic minorities, protect, inherit and promote the excellent traditional culture of the nation in accordance with the law, and ensure that all ethnic groups use and develop their own language The right of writing, all ethnic groups come and go, live in harmony, hug each other like pomegranate seeds.
We insist on protecting the freedom of religious belief of all ethnic groups in accordance with the law, fully implement the party’s policy on freedom of religious belief, and protect the normal religious activities and religious needs of religious believers in accordance with the law. We have established Xinjiang Islamic School and other religious schools to help improve venues for religious activities and religion. The conditions of activities promoted religious harmony and harmony.
The historic achievements of Xinjiang have attracted worldwide attention, and they have effectively demonstrated the incomparable superiority of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the warmth of the motherland. The people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang firmly support the Communist Party of China and are confident in creating a better life.
Since December 2018, more than 1,200 people from more than 80 groups, including UN officials, foreign envoys to China, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, permanent representatives of relevant countries in Geneva, media reporters, and religious groups, have visited Xinjiang. I myself have received them. After visiting various places in Xinjiang to understand the real situation, they all praised Xinjiang’s achievements in countering terrorism and de-radicalization, protecting citizens’ freedom of religious belief, promoting economic development, and improving people’s livelihood. The practice is worth learning.
Facts speak louder than words, and rumors stop at the wise.
Pompeo's bad behavior and despicable tricks will never succeed.
We firmly believe that no slander can stop the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation; no rumors can obliterate the fact that Xinjiang's human rights cause is progressing; no attempt can shake the determination of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang to unite and fight.
No matter how Pompeo lies, deceives, or tells right and wrong, it can't destroy the excellent situation of Xinjiang's social stability, can't interfere with the good life of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and can't stop the sonorous pace of Xinjiang's striving forward!
