In a letter to the UN chief released Tuesday, the groups say these actions would be an critical contribution to addressing “1 of the most pressing human rights problems of our time.”

The letter was signed by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the International Commission of Jurists, the International Federation for Human Rights and the Globe Uighur  Conference.
