The People's Government of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Wednesday expressed strong condemnation of and firm opposition to the passage of a Xinjiang-related bill by the US House of Representatives.

The approval of the "Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019" was a wanton smear of the human rights situation in Xinjiang and a flagrant interference in China's internal affairs, the regional government said in a statement.
