As the Foreign Secretary made clear in her statement of 24 May (, these latest reports provide further shocking details of China's gross human rights violations in Xinjiang. We have raised our serious concerns about this new and compelling evidence with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Beijing and the Chinese Embassy in London.

We will continue to raise our deep concern about the situation in Xinjiang directly with the Chinese authorities at the highest levels. The Prime Minister did so most recently in a telephone call with President Xi on 25 March.
