We are deeply concerned by reports of the mistreatment of Uyghur children in China, including reports of children being forcibly separated from their parents and placed in state run institutions. These reports add to the growing body of evidence about serious and widespread human rights violations taking place in Xinjiang. We continue to raise our concerns at the UN, and directly with China.
