Beijing, Sep 12 (IANS) | Publish Date: 9/12/2018 11:25:19 AM IST

China on Wednesday told the US to stop interfering in its domestic affairs on the pretext of Uighurs in Xinjiang and warned that bilateral ties will be hurt if it slapped sanctions against senior Chinese officials.

The US State Department on Tuesday said it was worried over Beijing’s “worsening crackdown” on Uighur Muslims in China’s far western Xinjiang province. A news report also said that Washington was weighing options to put sanctions on the Chinese officials involved in the policy making in the restive region.

“The Chinese are always opposed to the US using the Xinjiang related issues to interfere in China-related affairs,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a press briefing. “The Chinese government protects people’s freedom of religion and people of all ethnic groups are fully entitled to freedom of religion.”Geng added.
