China has criticized the United States' decision to transfer three Uighur inmates from the Guantanamo Bay prison to Slovakia.

The men were the last of 22 Uighur Muslims held at the controversial facility, which U.S. President Barack Obama has vowed to close.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Thursday the men are dangerous and should have been returned to China.
