U.N. Human-Rights Chief Calls on China, Gently, to Boost Transparency in Xinjiang

Michelle Bachelet’s six-day trip, which ended on Saturday, came under intense scrutiny from Western officials and human rights monitors, who raised concerns her visit would give Beijing political cover for its rights abuses in China’s northwestern Xinjiang region, without yielding meaningful new information about the treatment ethnic Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities by the Communist Party.
