“Indeed, the fundamental device of the United Nations– from the very first sentence of the Charter– is not just the nation state. It is also the human being,” she claimed.

The U.N. has fallen short thus far to take efficient action in the case of Xinjiang, however, said Dolkun Isa– head of state of the Germany-based World Uyghur Congress.

“There has actually been no single concrete activity taken by the UN Civil Rights Council, no urgent resolution has actually been presented, no unique session has been proposed.”

“Due to the Uyghur genocide as well as China’s danger to the UN civil rights devices as well as to the civil culture area, the UN needs to act in accordance with its very own core values,” Isa claimed.
