US Secretary of State backs Ozil’s stance on China

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo renewed his condemnation of China over its “gross human rights violations”, tweeting support for Arsenal footballer Mesut Ozil who last week criticised Beijing for its treatment of its Muslim-Uighur minority.

Ozil, a German national of Turkish descent, in social media posts called Uighurs “warriors who resist persecution” and berated Muslim countries for failing to speak up against China’s policies towards them.
