US says Chinese govt is ‘committing genocide’ against Uighurs 

The World

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an extraordinary announcement in the final hours of the Trump administration by declaring that the Chinese Communist Party has “committed genocide” against Uighur ethnic group. This powerful designation is something that Uighur groups have been lobbying governments around the globe to use. To discuss the importance of this development, host Marco Werman speaks to Salih Hudayar, who is with the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement.
