(ReliableNews.org) – The relations between China and the US are not in a good place right now. Earlier this month, the Trump Administration sanctioned Chinese officials for their treatment of the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities. Our government isn’t the only one having issues with the Communist country — the UK is now going head-to-head with it as well.
On July 19, China and the UK were trading barbs. Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said officials in Beijing are guilty of “gross and egregious…” human rights violations against the Uyghur Muslims in the country. He also suspended extradition arrangements with Hong Kong in the wake of the new security law imposed by the communist regime.

China accused the UK of “brutal meddling…” and promised to respond to the country.
Officials in Beijing have allowed more than a million ethnic minorities to be locked away in internment camps. The government has also destroyed many Uyghur burial sites and just behaved in an absolutely horrendous manner. Hopefully, with both the US and UK on their case, they’ll stop their barbaric acts, but it seems unlikely.
