China News Service, Beijing, July 2 (Reporter Li Jingze) The US State Department recently released the "Human Trafficking Report", which stated that the Chinese government has implemented extensive "forced labor" in Xinjiang and other regions.
In this regard, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on the 2nd that this can only fully expose the sinister intentions of the US to attack and discredit China and interfere in China's internal affairs through human rights issues. The US is not qualified to wield the "human rights stick" everywhere.

Wang Wenbin said that we are firmly opposed to the U.S.'s groundless accusations against China based on lies and rumors. This can only more fully expose the U.S.'s sinister intentions to use human rights issues to attack and discredit China and interfere in China's internal affairs.
The U.S. is not qualified to wield the "human rights stick" everywhere. What the U.S. needs to do is to reflect on and correct its human rights crimes such as genocide, racial discrimination, and forced labor.
Wang Wenbin pointed out that the American genocide of Indians is a recognized fact and stain.
Even today, American Indians still belong to an invisible group and a disappearing race.
According to US media reports, the living space of American Indians has been severely squeezed and the living environment is harsh. The more than 300 Indian reservations in the United States are mainly located in the barren Midwestern region, and most people’s lives are out of touch with modern civilization.
As a result of mining activities to develop and enrich the US nuclear arsenal, about a quarter of Navajo women and some babies contain high concentrations of radioactive materials.
The number of Indians living in poor counties is more than twice that of whites.
During the epidemic, the infection rate and death rate of Indians were significantly higher than the national average of the United States.
The Navajo tribe's infection rate surpassed that of New York State, ranking first in the United States.
According to a report released by the Indian Health Service, the life expectancy of Indians is 5.5 years lower than the average life expectancy of Americans.
"Not only that, the civil and political rights of Indians have also been severely deprived." Wang Wenbin said that earlier this year, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Harlan admitted at his nomination confirmation hearing that the Department of the Interior had historically used Tools to suppress indigenous tribes.
Recently, the US media also reported that nearly 100,000 people are trafficked from abroad to engage in forced labor in the United States each year, and fewer than 1,000 of them have been rescued.
Wang Wenbin pointed out that the cry of the "Floyds" in the United States is still lingering today. This tragic incident reflects only the tip of the iceberg of racism and systematic human rights violations in the United States. American minorities, refugees, and immigrants have long faced threats of discrimination and xenophobic words and deeds. White supremacy has not yet been circulated. Whether the United States can seriously examine and correct its own human rights abuses remains to be seen by the international community. (Finish)Keywords:
