US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo renewed the Trump administration’s rhetorical onslaught against China as he described the treatment of Uyghur Muslims as the biggest threat to religious freedom.
Pompeo made the statement during an address to the youth wing of Indonesia’s largest Islamic organisation, Nahdlatul Ulama.
The secretary of state’s visit to the world’s biggest Muslim-majority nation is part of his multi-nation trip to bolster trade and security ties in the ASEAN region.
Pompeo also urged Indonesians to search for the facts regarding the treatment of Uyghur Muslims in the Chinese province of Xinjiang. (Source: Thomson Reuters Foundation)
