African Countries Back China's Position in Xinjiang

 The Diplomat published on 9 October 2020 an analysis titled "2020 Edition: Which Countries Are for or against China's Xinjiang Policies?" by Catherine Putz.

Twenty-one African countries endorsed a recent statement authored by the Cuban permanent representative to the United Nations supporting China's human rights policies in Xinjiang.  The signatories included predominantly Muslim Comoros, Egypt, Guinea, Morocco, Sudan and several with significant Muslim minorities.  Interestingly, however, four African countries--Algeria, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and Somalia--that endorsed a similar letter in 2019, did not sign on in 2020.
