ALDE co-signs statement in support of sanctions against China

Together with three other signatories, the ALDE Party has signed a statement expressing grave concern over the sanctions adopted against the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights, democracy promotion institutions, Members of Parliaments, and prominent members of civil society.

“The Transatlantic Community stands by its steadfast belief in individual rights to liberty and democratic political representation. It is our foundational commitment to defend these institutions and support the democratic rights to people of the world even when that comes at a cost.

We are united in calling for China to end its oppressive ethnic policies in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and restore public confidence in Hong Kong’s democratic institutions in adherence with the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984,” the statement reads.

Earlier this month, the ALDE Party issued a statement condemning China’s counter-blacklisting, with ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen highlighting the need to revisit the relationship with China.
