Japan seeks to maintain friendly ties with China as its largest trading partner without hurting relations with its security ally the United States.

Cliche, everyone say this^^^, because USA has dropped the leadership ball. USA should have been more protective of its allies against China's coercions.

South Korea and THAAD, USA should have retaliated against China's punishment of SK.

Japan, USA should have punished China for the rare earths export ban on Japan, or when Japanese factories were attacked in China.

USA should have levelled tariffs and bans on China for its punishment of Australia.

AND, especially because the Philippines is a treatied ally of USA, USA should have retaliated against China's banana coercion against the Philippines.

Heck, USA should have protected its own NBA when it was punished by China.

Please Mr Biden, send China a clear unequivocal message - DO NOT HARM OUR ALLIES, ELSE.

Japan isn't doing everything Trump would like related to China, but has been doing more than ever before and not just with China, but with Iranian sanctions and NK.

There will always be people who say not enough or too much. Perhaps that's the way to know Japan has been doing close to the correct amount? The US isn't your police.

Biden will not do anything to increase pressre on China to be a better neighbor. That isn't his style and China is counting on the US economic policies being rolled back under Biden. Less than 10% chance those policies will be retained.

The Georgia US Senate results next Tuesday will determine how far left-of-center Biden gets to be the next 2 yrs.

I’m sure the CIA et al knew what was happening and turned a blind 5 eyes. An autonomous radical Muslim nation on the edges of their war on terror is not beneficial to them, unless selling weapons to further cause destabilization is a goal.

Why does the article not mention the genocide of Uighurs in China that is going on but uses alleged crackdown and detention instead?

5 ( +6 / -1 )

International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutors in the Muslim minority communities in Xinjiang rejected the call of exiled Uyghurs to prosecute China for suspected genocide and crimes against humanity.

China has locked more than one million Uyghurs and other mainly Muslim minorities in re-education camps, and has forcibly sterilized Chinese women.

Mass imprisonment under the supervision of the CCP, inhumane treatment, forced labor, ubiquitous state surveillance and minority control.

There are also allegations of rape in the refugee camps.

China has locked more than one million Uyghurs and other mainly Muslim minorities in re-education camps, and has forcibly sterilized Chinese women.

When I first read about this, the number was 50,000. Then 100,000. Then 500,000. Now it's a million. Soon it will be 20,000,000? (far more than the number of residents in Xinjiang province).

Do you have an idea of the absurdity of how much it will cost to feed and house 1,000,000 souls per day? Not to mention feed and house the huge number of guards, overseers and "teachers"? Until now, short of taking a flight there once borders have reopened, I have not seen any evidence of these camps. I read that from 1948-1960, during the Malayan Emergency, the British locked up 500,000 Malayans of Chinese descent in 554 concentration camps (called "New Villages") all over Malaya (now Peninsular Malaysia) in order to prevent them from helping the Communist rebels. A million incarcerated Uighurs would be over 1,000 camps---where are these camps?

Since the first veracity of OIC's (Organization of Islamic Countries) mission probe into this was called into question, why not just get another United Nations + OIC-led mission deep into Xinjiang province and have a clear expose on the truth over there? The whole word deserves to know the TRUTH --- either China is lying or the 5-eyes+Japan have concocted a crock of bull all the while.

I think arming them would be appreciated by the Muslim community world wide.

Everyone has been dying to prosecute China for crimes against humanity but according to one of the posts above the ICC declined to prosecute.

That can only mean there's no evidence.

It's difficult to care about what's happening to muslims in China when you don't even want them in your country and had tried to put a blanket ban on them entering your country. Or does America have a two-faced approach to life?

you won’t see Naomi or Hamilton wear a mask or take a knee for this cause.

Japan provided intelligence to the United States and Britain last year showing evidence of China's forceful detainment of Muslim Uyghur minority people on condition of keeping the source confidential, a person close to Japan-U.S. relations said Monday.

Fake news. No source, no evidence.

International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutors in the Muslim minority communities in Xinjiang rejected the call of exiled Uyghurs to prosecute China for suspected genocide and crimes against humanity.

You failed to mention that the reason the ICC didn't agree to prosecute China is because China is not a member of the ICC and cannot therefore is not subject to prosecution by the ICC. It was not because the Uyghur case lacks merit, it was only because the ICC lacks jurisdiction.

That is not the case at all. Because China is not a member of the ICC the ICC lacks jurisdiction to prosecute China on this matter.

When I first read about the Uighurs, it was for arrests, detention and re-education camps. Now it’s genocide and mass organ harvesting of Uighurs.

I have doubts that such could happen while the world just sits.

Good I came back, thanks for the clarification

Why do you say that? No one lifted a finger against Mao or China over the even greater barbarities committed during the Cultural Revolution. The Muslim states are all silent, afraid to anger their benefactor and frequent arms supplier. Even the Turks, to whom the Uyghurs are close ethnically and who otherwise are not shy about making strong even offensive public statements, say nothing.

So... they have to take on all causes, or none at all?

Seems like a rather ridiculous statement. Of course the BLM movement is going to have more significance for them.

What you’re mentioning is a past example of non-intervention. Technology and information play a role more now than 80 years ago. My point is the exaggeration; e.g. millions of Uighurs are being slaughtered and their organs harvested and traded.

It’s easy to be Anti-CCP but also easy to see what is Anti-China sentiment.
