“Xinjiang’s door is open. Welcome to Xinjiang to feel its beauty,” Chen Xu, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations Office at Geneva, said at the photo exhibition ceremony. was held in Geneva to introduce the real Xinjiang region. .

Attended by representatives and senior diplomats from more than 30 countries, the photo exhibition ceremony titled “Xinjiang is a Wonderful Land” was held in Geneva on Monday.

Shewket Imin, director of the Standing Committee of the People’s Congress of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, briefed the participants on the latest social and economic developments in Xinjiang.

The serious situation of Xinjiang suffering from frequent violent terrorist activities has been reversed as a result of the continuous fight against counter-terrorism and the eradication of extremism in Xinjiang. Today’s Xinjiang is a place where the society is stable, the economy and livelihood are improved, the culture is prosperous, and the rights of ethnic people are well protected, Shewket said.

Ignoring Xinjiang’s historical human rights achievements, anti-China forces in the United States and the West have fabricated and spread many Xinjiang-related rumors and lies, seriously damaging Xinjiang’s image, Shewket noted.

Through numerous photos of Xinjiang, the exhibition showcases the region’s major achievements in respecting and ensuring human rights, aiming to present a genuine Xinjiang to the world, Shewket said.

Chen also noted that Xinjiang adheres to the people-centered philosophy of human rights and takes as its goal the aspiration of people of all ethnic groups to a better life. Through unremitting efforts, unprecedented achievements have been made in Xinjiang, but some countries and anti-China forces are manufacturing and spreading Xinjiang-related disinformation for political purposes, with the aim of tarnishing China’s image, to undermine stability in the Xinjiang region and to contain China’s development. Such despicable attempts are doomed to failure, Chen noted.

“Xinjiang’s door is open. Welcome to Xinjiang to feel its beauty,” Chen told diplomats at the event.

Looking at the exhibited photos, many participating diplomats said they could feel how much Xinjiang people appreciate the happy life there and hope to visit or revisit Xinjiang.
