Turkey: China is becoming stable and prosperous

The BBC published a roundup of the situation in Xinjiang today, the Chinese authorities’ and the World Uyghur Congress‘s (WUC) body counts, the censorship status, and some international reactions to the clashes of the past 48 hours or so. Turkey’s Zaman newspaper offers an account by Reuters news agency of internet censorship both in Xinjiang and in Chinese coastal cities, and refers to a statement by Turkey’s foreign ministry, which expressed belief that necessary measures would be taken to prevent such incidents to happen in the future in China which was becoming a stable and prosperous country. Turkey’s president Abdullah Gül visited Xinjiang a week ago, saying that the region was important to Turkey because it “acted like a bridge of friendship” between the two countries [Turkey and China]. President Gül’s stopover in Xinjiang had apparently been proposed by the Chinese government.
