Chris Patten: The West should not be browbeaten into embarrassed silence in the face of China’s violation of its obligations regarding Hong Kong, a city that exemplifies many of the values that Xi’s CPC wants to bury.
History will say Xi’s aggressiveness backfired & inflicted tremendous damage on #China globally
-mass detention of #Uyghurs
-trapping developing countries in debt
-coercive diplomacy by “Wolf Warrior Diplomats”
is creating growing international resentment
After leaked #XinjiangPapers exposed Chairman Xi’s oppressive campaign against #Uyghurs & other Muslim minorities,in a few minutes the House will be voting to pass an amended version of my bill that holds those involved in crimes in #Xinjiang accountable.
@HudsonInstitute It’s the protestors in HK, the journalists risking their lives & safety to shine a light on injustice, the Uyghurs fighting back bravely in the face of suffering, the politicians questioning Xi’s leadership, the brave health workers who tried to warn us about the Coronavirus.
