No African Countries Join Western Criticism of China at UN

 In a rejoinder to the statement by China's permanent representative to the United Nations (see 6 October below), the permanent representative of Germany issued a statement on behalf of 39 mostly Western countries in the Third Committee of the UN.  It expressed grave concern "about the human rights situation in Xinjiang and the recent developments in Hong Kong."

While 9 African countries joined the Chinese-drafted statement critical of human rights in the US and EU countries, no African or Middle Eastern country joined the German-drafted statement critical of China.
