From the English version of the Beijing based Global Times:
After the riots in Xinjiang, many governments around the world are very cautious making comments, including the American government. But the Turkish government is an exception. As Urumqi is on its way to recovery, this arrogant country has never stopped lashing out at China.
In fact, both the Turkish government and its nongovernmental organizations were harsh on China. Speaking to foreign ministers of the Persian Gulf who were visiting Istanbul as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council activities, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “We have always seen our Uygur brothers, with whom we have historical and cultural ties…”
He said Turkey, a member of the UN Security Council for 2009 to 2010 will raise this issue in the United Nations. Turkish Minister of Foreign affairs Ahmet Davutoğlu also said, “Turkey has concerns about developments in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. It cannot remain silent in the face of what is happening there.”
