CHINA COMMISSIONS A PRELIMINARY RESEARCH STUDY TO BUILD RAIL LINK TO PAKISTAN VIA PoK

Beijing: China Monday said it would welcome the UN officials to visit its volatile Muslim-majority Xinjiang province provided they remain “fair and objective”, days after the official media reported that Beijing passed a five-year plan to “sinicise Islam” to make it compatible with its version of socialism. UN Geneva-based Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination said last year that it was alarmed by “numerous reports of ethnic Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities” being detained in camps Xinjiang region and called for their immediate release.
