SDHF Newspetter No. 264 Protest Xi Jinping’s invitation as a state guest
Statement to United Nations Human Rights Council
protesting the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping
as a State Guest of Japan
February 20, 2020
The Japanese Society for History Textbook Reform and International Research Institute of Controversial Histories sent a statement to the United Nations Human Rights Council
protesting the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping as a State Guest of Japan on February 13.
The Chinese Government has sent more than one million Uighur people to concentration camps and is undertaking a policy of ethnic cleansing. Currently, in Hong Kong, the Chinese Government is increasingly suppressing an growing democratic movement.
China is now the worst enemy of human rights in the world. Inviting such a country’s president to Japan as a State Guest would be seen by all as approval by Japan of China’s crimes against humanity.
Thus, the statement demands that the United Nations Human Rights Council:
1. Strongly urge the Japanese Government to cancel its invitation to Chinese President Xi Jinping to Japan as a state guest and
2. Compel the Chinese Government to duly observe the Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and faithfully fulfill the recommendation made by the United Nations Committee of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD/C/CHN/CO/14 -1).
Questions are welcome.
