A A A, 10 March, 2021- Beijing has dismissed US allegations of genocide in its Xinjiang region as “absolutely ridiculous and completely contrary to the facts,” and said it’s the lawmakers in Washington who should be wearing the “hat of genocide.”

Speaking on Wednesday, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Zhao Lijian said Beijing firmly opposes the US’ insistence on spreading rumours and false information about China’s internal affairs, calling on Washington to provide real evidence.

Regarding the rumours concerning China’s human rights abuses in Xinjiang, Zhao stated that the Uighur population has doubled from 5.55 million to more than 12 million in the past 40 years.

The spokesman contended that the so-called “hat of genocide” is America’s to keep, as he accused Washington of wiping out the native Indian population of North America.
