What the response was going on, she said. Recently the media reported that American diplomats based in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang and Wuhan, will be obliged to notify the Ministry of foreign Affairs of any meetings with representatives of local authorities and educational and research institutes in five days. October 8, the US state Department imposed visa restrictions against members of the Chinese authorities, which Washington believes are involved in violations of human rights in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous region (XUAR), home to the Uighurs, and mass arrests. The state Department said that working in the United States, Chinese diplomats on October 16, will be obliged to inform us of any contacts with the authorities in the USA. The U.S. Department of Commerce also reported that sanctions are imposed against China’s 28 organizations because of the persecution of the Uighurs and other Muslim minority. Restrictions affected exports and re-exports, they also provide for refusal to license of supply. Beijing thought that Washington imposed visa bans and restrictions violate the basic norms governing international relations. Chinese authorities said that in Xinjiang, “no problem of human rights” and the US charges are pretexts for interference in internal Affairs. In August 2018 at the meeting of the high Commissioner for human rights UN Committee on the elimination of racial discrimination, gay McDougall, stated that in China to 1 million ethnic Uighurs are in place, resembling a “vast internment camp”. Another 2 million Uighurs and other members of the Muslim minority, according to him, are “political camps for indoctrination”.
