China urges Canada to refrain from ‘political manipulation’ over Uyghur Muslims

China urged Canada on Thursday to stop using Xinjiang-related issues for "political manipulation," with foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning claiming that the people in the region are "living and working in peace and happiness." The comments came after Canada's House of Commons unanimously backed the resettlement of 10,000 Uyghur Muslims fleeing persecution in China.
