U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement on July 20 commenting on the 21st Anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong followers. 5 representatives of the Falun Gong movement also met with State Department officials that day. Since 1999, the People’s Republic of China has attempted to exterminate this movement, which it sees as a threat to its domestic control of the country. Falun Gong followers have been kidnapped, detained and tortured, and have reportedly been subject to forced organ harvesting.
