China Islamic Association slams U.S. House approval of Xinjiang-related bill

  BEIJING, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The China Islamic Association on Thursday expressed strong indignation over and firm opposition to the passage of a Xinjiang-related bill by the U.S. House of Representatives.

  The so-called "Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019," which was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday local time, has ignored facts, smeared and groundlessly criticized the human rights situation in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and the Chinese government's Xinjiang policies, according to a statement issued by the association.
