Recent from CGTN:
CGTN published this video item, entitled “How media outlets manipulate facts about Xinjiang population” – below is their description.
A new report claims that women in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region are becoming more confident and independent, as religious extremism subsides, refuting accusations of “forced sterilization” and even “genocide” that have proliferated in international media since last year. What does the new report reveal? And what accounts for the extreme disconnect between its findings and the inflammatory accusations against China?

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
