China: US committed genocides against Native Americans
Jiang Duan, a senior official at China’s mission to the United Nations in Geneva, accuses some western countries in committing genocides and calls for comprehensive investigations.
The head of the Chinese mission to the United Nations in Geneva, Jiang Duan, criticized "the crimes committed by the United States and Western countries," describing them as "genocides" and called on to "comprehensive investigations."
The Chinese diplomat called on the international community to conduct "comprehensive, impartial and in-depth investigations into all crimes of genocide, to eliminate racism, racial discrimination and other legacies of those crimes."
Jiang Duan added that the genocide is "a grave and universally recognized international crime, and its devastating effects are sensed even nowadays."
"Native Americans in the US were expelled from their lands and massacred during the so-called Western expansion over the nearly 100 years after the country's founding, and their number decreased from 5 million at the end of the 15th century to 250,000 at the beginning of the 20th century," as Jiang explained.
Parenthetically, Jiang said that "more than 150,000 Aboriginal children in Canada were forcibly sent to boarding schools to accommodate them, and at least 3,200 of them were abused to death."
Jiang Duan stressed that this "is only the tip of the iceberg in the number of Aboriginal people who died due to the genocides in Canada."
