Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng: The Training Centers in Xinjiang Are Deradicalized Boarding Schools

2019/03/15

When attending the Adoption of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Outcome Report on China at the United Nations, Head of the Chinese Delegation and Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng expressed that there is no difference between a training center and a boarding school. Courses on the national common language, legal knowledge and professional skills help the trainees deradicalize. The trainees can go home regularly ask for a leave when needed and make phone or video calls to their family, and their family can come to the training centers to visit them. Upon completion of the courses, the trainees will be recommended for employment or self-employment by the school and the government. The training centers provide free accommodations and safeguard all basic rights of the trainees in accordance with the law to meet their needs in study, life and entertainment.

Le Yucheng noted that I myself paid a special visit to Xinjiang last month, where I toured the training centers, and had face-to-face communication with teachers, the trainees and their families at the training centers. I also visited classrooms, dormitories, canteens and sports fields, where are full of brightness and cleanness as well as happiness and cheerful voices from the trainees. The level of the national common language and legal awareness of all trainees have been greatly enhanced. The trainees who have practiced sewing, hairdressing and e-commerce are very skilled, and they enjoyed it. They all have confidence in their future and their families are also gratified. Not only myself, but many foreign friends who have visited the training centers said that what they saw were diligent students and happy campus, and the so-called accusation of "camps" fell apart.
