We remain concerned about the treatment of ethnic minorities in China - particularly in Tibet and Xinjiang.

The Foreign Secretary raised our concerns about the situation in Xinjiang with Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi during his visit to China in July 2018. I also raised our concerns about Xinjiang with Vice Minister Guo Yezhou during my visit to China on 22 July 2018.

We also raised our concerns about Tibet and Xinjiang in the June 2018 UN Human Rights Council and at the last round of the UK/China Human Rights Dialogue in June 2017.
