Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a hardliner against China, ordered the study. U.S. officials told Kyodo News. The Yoshihide Suga administration, which is said to have a strong influence of “pro-Chinese”, is likely to be required to take a clear stance in order to strengthen the international siege to China.
“There is a good chance that it will be recognized before the change of government.”
Kyodo News delivered the statement of a US official on the 25th.
In China, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, large-scale incarceration and forced labor against ethnic minorities by the Chinese government, led by Xi Jinping Jintao, is ideological education has attracted strong criticism of the international community. Sterilization and forced abortion have also been reported for women, but the Chinese government has denied.
