China on Wednesday announced sanctions against nearly 30 officials in the government of former US President Donald Trump, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, for violating his “sovereignty”.

China decided to sanction 28 people who seriously violated sovereignty Chinese, its foreign ministry said in a statement released just as Joe Biden was taking over as president in Washington.

In addition to Mike Pompeo are notably cited by Chinese diplomacy Peter Navarro, trade advisor to Donald Trump, Robert O'Brien, who was one of his national security advisers, Alex Azar, the outgoing health secretary, as well as John Bolton and Stephen Bannon, who also advised the Republican billionaire.

All these personalities and members of their families will be barred from entering Chinese territory, including Hong Kong and Macao, the foreign ministry said.

They and their associated companies and institutions also cannot do business with China, he added.

According to foreign experts, more than a million Uighurs are or have been detained in political re-education camps in Xinjiang.

On his last day as US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo announced that the United States now considers China commits genocide against the Uighurs.

I think this genocide is still going on and we are witnessing a systematic attempt to destroy the Uighurs by the Chinese party-state., he added, in a statement released Tuesday.

He also mentioned crimes against humanity conducted <q data-attributes = '{"lang": {"value": "fr", "label": "Français"}, "value": {"html": "since at least March2017 "," text ":" since at least March 2017 "}} 'lang =" fr”>since at least March 2017 by the Chinese authorities against the Uighurs and other members of ethnic and religious minorities in Xinjiang.

The United States calls on the People's Republic of China to immediately release all those arbitrarily detained and end its system of internment and detention camps, supervised residences and forced labor, hammered Mike Pompeo.

Earlier today, China derided Mike Pompeo's accusations that a genocide is ongoing against Uighur Muslims in its region of Xinjiang (northwest).

This qualification is just a scrap of paper in our eyesChinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters.

In recent years, Mike Pompeo has propagated countless lies and pernicious ideas. This accusation of an alleged (genocide) is just one of his absurd and shameless lies, denounced Ms. Hua.

The Uyghur issue is one of the many points of friction between Beijing and Washington with COVID-19, Hong Kong and Taiwan. A confrontation to which the outgoing US Secretary of State will have given the appearance of a new cold war.

President-elect Biden had felt before his election in November, according to a press release from his campaign team in August, that the crackdown on the Muslim minority constituted a genocide perpetrated by the authoritarian government of China.
