STATEMENT

 

I am deeply saddened and concerned with the worsening situation in East Turkestan (Xinjiang), especially with the tragic loss of lives. 

I earnestly urge the Chinese authorities to exercise restraint in dealing with the situation in a spirit of understanding and far-sightedness. 

I offer my prayers for those who lost their lives, their families and others affected by this sad turn of events.
