New Zealand Govt on Uyghurs: Genocide declaration would hurt trade with China

New Zealand's Trade Minister has warned the Parliament if it were to declare the treatment of Uyghur (Uighur) minority as genocide it would "no doubt" hurt the country's trade relationship with China.
Damien O’Connor, you are a NAZI in all but name!

FOREWORD: Damien O’Connor would have probably found protesting against the Irish Potato Famine stigmatized the British Empire as evil.

Damien O’Connor: Chinese government “clearly” would not like it if Parliament declared treatment of Uyghurs as genocide
Damien O’Connor should be fired, excommunicated, stuffed and put on display for everyone to see!

“China has been under international pressure over its treatment of Uyghurs, an ethnic minority native to an area in China’s northwest, which the UK and US have declared a genocide,” a report said.

The ACT Party intends to put a motion to NZ Parliament on Wednesday to debate the treatment of China’s Uyghur minority.

“ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden said many of the recent reports from Xinjiang amount to genocide.”

Trade Minister Damien O’Connor said the Chinese government “clearly” would not like it if Parliament declared the treatment as genocide.

“When asked by reporters what that would do to New Zealand’s trade relationship with China, O’Connor said ‘no doubt it would have an impact. That’s hardly rocket science.'”

As for PM Ardern, she has thus far weasel-worded herself out of making a commitment.
