The vote, part of a growing movement in western democracies, was hailed by the chair of the US Senate foreign relations committee, Bob Menendez, who said the UK parliament had
“ shone a light on the egregious abuses the Chinese state commits against the Uyghur people.

The free world must be united in holding the Chinese government to account for these abuses.”
