The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof stated that Malaysia will not extradite ethnic Uighur refugees to China and will allow them safe passage to a third country should they feel their safety is at risk. The position taken by the minister is compatible with contemporary international law, which gives every Sovereign State an exclusive right of control over persons on its territory. In the exercise of this inherent right, a state may grant asylum (protection) to refugees, provide them with a safe passage to a third country and refuse to extradite them to their country of origin in which they fear persecution.
