Map of the Month 06/2022

At the beginning of the 50th UN Human Rights Council, the Netherlands delivered a cross-regional joint statement (JST) on behalf of 46 other states in which they expressed their grave concern about the human rights situation in China, particularly in Xinjiang. This comes in the context of the publication of the Xinjiang Police Files and the recent visit of UN High Commissioner Bachelet to China. Cuba on the other hand opposed any politicisation, double standards or interference in China's internal affairs in the name of 69 states.
