Japan and Australia said on Wednesday they had “serious concerns” about reported human rights abuses against Uyghur and other Muslim minorities in China’s Xinjiang region.

In a joint statement, they also expressed concern about recent moves that they said weakened Hong Kong’s democratic institutions, and grave concerns about the ongoing crisis in Myanmar.
