Genocide ‘must be pursued,’ Rep. Smith says at religious freedom summit

WASHINGTON — Charges of genocide — whoever the victim, whoever the perpetrator — “must be pursued,” Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., said July 14 at the International Religious Freedom Summit in Washington. Smith, who referenced the genocides of Jews and Armenians as examples of 20th-century genocides, focused his summit remarks on China. “Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party have exponentially increased persecution against religious believers — including Christians, Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists and Falun Gong practitioners — in ways not seen since the Cultural Revolution,” he said.
