We have regular discussions with the government of the United States and other international partners about the situation in Xinjiang, including in relation to our shared concerns about mass surveillance in the region, and the technology used to facilitate it. Together with partners, we have consistently made our concerns clear, including in a joint statement at the UN Third Committee in October 2021 that called out China's widespread use of surveillance to target Uyghurs and other minorities in Xinjiang.
