Biden Expresses Ramadan Solidarity With China’s Uighurs

US President Joe Biden has expressed solidarity with China’s Uighur Muslims in a message to celebrate Ramadan.

Biden said in a statement on Thursday; “Together with our partners, the United States stands in solidarity with Muslims who continue to face oppression, including Uighurs in the People’s Republic of China.

"Rohingya in Burma, and other Muslim communities facing persecution around the world."

He added; “During this sacred time of reflection, the United States also reaffirms our support to Muslim communities suffering hardships and devastation,” Biden said, referring to earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria, and flood victims in Pakistan.

“Today especially, we remember the universal human right to practice, pray, and preach our faiths peacefully and openly.”

Biden’s highlighting of the Uighurs came as they are being subjected to genocide by the Chinese authorities.

According to rights groups, Uighurs are subjected to mass imprisonment in forced labour camps and banned from expressing their culture.
