Psaki could not clarify Biden’s opinion on the situation with the Uyghur genocide

White House press secretary Jennifer Psaki could not give a clear answer to the question of whether US President Joseph Biden agrees with the assessment of former Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, who called China’s actions towards the Uighurs as “genocide” and “crimes against humanity,” reports TASS …

“I know that our Secretary of State is about to be confirmed. He will review a number of decisions and assessments that have been made. Obviously, the president spoke earlier about the terrible treatment of the Uyghurs, but I have nothing else for you, ”said Psaki.

Earlier, Pompeo called China’s actions against the Uighurs “genocide.” The statement said that after reviewing the available facts, Pompeo concluded that at least since March 2017, China has committed crimes against humanity in Xinjiang. Also, according to the Secretary of State, the PRC carried out genocide in the XUAR.
