Governor of Xinjiang province condemns the UNITED states'interference in China's treatment of muslim minorities.
American politicians have gone over the line.
It says the governor in the chinese Xinjiang province, Shohrat Zakir, to journalists in Beijing on the night of Monday Danish time.
last week adopted a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives a bill requiring that the UNITED states is equivalent harder again on China's treatment of its muslim minority, the uighurs.
Although there are several steps before the proposal could result in an actual law, the u.s. actions increased tensions between the UNITED states and China.
Experts from the UN and activists accuse China of detaining up to a million uighurs in camps in Xinjiang province.
China has repeatedly rejected accusations of mistreatment of uighurs. China claims that the camps are a part of country's efforts against terrorism and efforts to offer vocational training.
The u.s. bill is a serious violation of international rules and an impermissible interference in chinese affairs, says the governor on the night of Monday.
China's intervention against terror is no different than the american effort, stresses Shohrat Zakir.
the Governor accuse the U.S. to lead a smear campaign against the Xinjiang province, which creates the division between the ethnic groups in China.
Any attempt to influence Xinjiang is doomed to fail, he says further.
the Proposal from the House of Representatives requires sanctions against the chinese officials, who are behind China's uighur policy.
Including the communist party leader in Xinjiang province, Chen Quanguo.
at the same time requires the bill, that the UNITED states'department of commerce prohibiting the export to companies in Xinjiang.
the Camps in Xinjiang have been established over the past three years. According to the chinese regime must counteract religious extremism and terrorist activity.
But leaked documents have revealed how the muslims are being indoctrinated and tortured.
the Documents include an instruction from the communist party to leaders of the camps.
Here it appears that the camps should serve as prisons, with strict discipline and punishment.
The prisoners should only be released when they can prove that they have changed their behaviour and beliefs, it appears.
