Lies Are Scotched for Facts Speak Louder Than Words

Wuruziali Hasiharbayi, Deputy Director of Public Complaints and Proposals Bureau of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region

Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently published the “lie of the century” before leaving office, falsely claiming that Xinjiang had committed “genocide” and “crimes against humanity” against Uygur Muslims and other ethnic minorities. Pompeo's so-called "Xinjiang-related issues" are not ethnic, religious or human rights issues at all, but deliberately stirring up trouble, creating interference, and undermining our socialist modernization. We must keep our eyes open and never be deceived!

Under the guidance of the CPC’s strategy of governing Xinjiang in the new era, we have adminster Xinjiang according to law. There has been no violent or terrorist incident in Xinjiang for more than four years. We have united and maintained stability in Xinjiang. All ethnic groups are are equal and mutually beneficial with exchanges and integration, and all religions enjoy harmony. Historical progress has been made in ethnic unity and religious harmony. All ethnic groups are united as tightly as pomegranate seeds. We have invigorated Xinjiang with culture. Xinjiang has made great progress in science, education, culture and health. And 15-year compulsory education is the first to be realized in South Xinjiang. We have prospered the people and revitalized Xinjiang. We have made historic achievements in the poverty alleviation in Xinjiang, and the hat of absolute poverty has been thrown into the garbage dump of history. We have been building Xinjiang for a long time. The Chinese Communists are not only good at breaking up the old world, but also good at building a new world. We will surely build a new socialist Xinjiang with Chinese characteristics for the new era featuring unity, harmony, prosperity, progress in civilization, contentment, and a sound ecological environment.

Who chatters to you, will chatter of you. Pompeo’s “statement” seemed solemn, but in fact it was absurd and ridiculous. It only added an indelible stain to his notorious “diplomatic legacy”. As a cadre of ethnic minorities and the first secretary of a impoverished village, I have personally experienced and witnessed the arduous journey of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), to overcome difficulties in an all-round way, and to rally together to win a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respectsin the past three years. Numerous first secretaries and members of the “Comprehend, Benefit & Assembly” work team have left their homes for everyone, sticking to the front line of developing, building and protecting Xinjiang. They have worked hard and achieved significant results in social stability and economic development. In 2020, 3,666 poverty-stricken villages and 32 poverty-stricken counties and 3.0649 million people have been lifted out of poverty in the whole region. The "two no worries and three guarantees" have been fully realized. Pompeo's lies are scotched for facts. It's funny and ridiculous to everyone.

Be aware of the hideous faces of the anti-China forces. The fundamental purpose of Pompeo's so-called Xinjiang-related “bill” is to sow discord between China's ethnic groups, undermine the prosperity and stability of Xinjiang, and hinder China's development and growth. He completely underestimated the firm determination of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government to safeguard the fundamental interests of the Chinese nation, and completely ignored the common will of the Chinese people, including the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, to safeguard national reunification, ethnic unity and social stability. In the historical process of realizing the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, any clumsy clown-like performance can only lead to his own humiliation and will eventually become a laughing stock of history.

Pompeo's clumsy Xinjiang-related performance will not affect the confidence and determination of the CPC and government to benefit the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. His remarks that disregard history and reality are bound to be strongly opposed by the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, and they are bound to be cast aside by history and reality!
