Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that Pakistan accepted Beijing’s version regarding the treatment of Uighurs in China’s Xinjiang province.
Speaking to Chinese journalists on Thursday as Beijing marked the centenary of the ruling Communist Party, the cricketer turned politician said that the Chinese version was completely different from what was being reported in Western media, Dawn newspaper reported.
“It is hypocritical. There are much worse human rights violations taking place in other parts of the world such as in Kashmir. But Western media hardly comments on this,” Khan was quoted as saying by the Pakistani newspaper.
“Because of our extreme proximity and relationship with China, we actually accept the Chinese version.”
He said that it was hypocritical that while the Uighur situation and Hong Kong was being highlighted, attention was not being given to the human rights violations in Kashmir.
