In 2023, during President Mahmoud Abbas’s visit to Beijing, the Palestinian Authority endorsed China’s genocidal policy against the Uyghurs. Abbas and Xi Jinping issued a joint statement endorsing Beijing’s domestic and foreign policies. 

At the UN 2024 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for China, the Palestinian Authority does it again (at 2:24:55 min). The following is the transcript of the speech by the Palestinian delegation at the UN 2024 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for China:

“Thank you, Mr President.

We welcome the delegation from China and thank them for the presentation on the latest developments regarding the human rights situation in the country and [re]commend their efforts to promote and protect human rights.

In the constructive spirit, we recommend the following:

-Continue the efforts and take measures to improve healthcare services to guarantee the rights, good quality, and affordable healthcare to all persons, including marginalized individuals.

-Continued efforts to ensure equal access to education in urban and rural areas.

-Continue to strengthen participation in the global human international right governance system and [strengthen] mutual learning on human rights views and practices.

We wish China a successful review. Thank you.”
