Susan Rice calls Chinese diplomat Zhao Lijian ‘a racist disgrace’ after Twitter tirade

A war of words has broken out between a former US national security adviser and China’s deputy chief of mission in Pakistan, with Susan Rice calling Zhao Lijian “a racist disgrace”.
Zhao, one of the most active Chinese diplomats on Twitter, was defending Beijing’s controversial policy in the far western region of  Xinjiang, where more than 1 million ethnic Uygurs and other mostly Muslim minorities are said to have been detained in re-education camps that have drawn global condemnation. Beijing says the camps are “vocational education and training centres” that are part of its efforts to stamp out religious extremism.
