His office has also put together a long-awaited and long-awaited report on alleged human rights abuses in the region.

Separately, Human Rights Watch said a total of 195 human rights groups in an open letter Bachelet released to “immediately” release reports on “the Chinese government’s rights abuses targeting Uyghurs and other Turkish communities.”

Diplomats in Geneva said the report had been in the works for months.

Beijing says the sites are training centers aimed at helping increase economic wealth and ward off attacks of extreme violence in Xinjiang.

“Human rights groups are becoming increasingly concerned that the UN human rights office is still not publishing the much-anticipated report on Xinjiang, even as it accumulates,” said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. (T/RE1)
