BEIJING — A senior anti-terrorism official of China Wednesday expressed strong indignation over and firm opposition to the US House of Representatives’ passing of a Xinjiang-related bill.

The so-called “Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019” disregarded facts and made false accusations against the Chinese government’s Xinjiang policies, its measures to fight terrorism and maintain stability, and the human rights condition in Xinjiang, said Liu Yuejin, head of China’s national anti-terrorism leading group office.
