Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The Australian Parliament is debating a motion to condemn China's 'systematic human rights abuses in East Turkistan.
The motion was submitted to Parliament by ruling Liberal Party MP Kevin Andrews.
"The most horrific and systematic of human rights in the world is happening in Xinjiang (East Turkistan) right now," Andrews, who has the support of all the major parties in parliament, said in a statement.
Andrews said accusations of massive concentration camps and forced labor were among the reasons the Dutch and Canadian Parliaments, as well as the British upper house and United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken and former minister Mike Pompeo, described and condemned it as genocide.
The motion, introduced by MP Kevin Andrews, urges Australia to enforce laws against modern slavery and identify supply chains that use forced labor.
