    Turkey calls on China to close internment camps for Muslims

    Well you know you've fucked up when TURKEY is telling you to stop locking people up for nothing!



    ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey called on China to close its internment camps for Muslims, saying the camps which reportedly hold a million ethnic Uighur people are a “great shame for humanity”.


    Last week, rights activists urged European and Muslim nations to take the lead in establishing a U.N. investigation into China’s detention and “forced indoctrination” of up to one million Uighurs, who speak a Turkic-language, and other Muslims in Xinjiang province.

    “The policy of systematic assimilation against the Uighur Turks carried out by the authorities of China is a great shame for humanity,” Turkish foreign ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said in a statement late on Saturday.


    “It is no longer a secret that more than one million Uighur Turks incurring arbitrary arrests are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in internment camps and prisons,” Aksoy said.




    Turkey’s response follows the death of Uighur poet and musician Abdurehim Heyit in custody.



    Beijing faces growing international pressure over its so-called “de-radicalisation” programme in its far western province.

    Ankara called on the international community and the UN secretary general to take action.


    China says it protects the religion and culture of its ethnic minorities and that security measures in Xinjiang are needed to counter groups that incite violence there.

    The link was for you Harry, as you seem to think Turkey is a credible source of government morality.

    The Chinese government must be doing well if this is the best you can come up with.

    (22 Feb 2017) Turkey is one of a number of countries singled out by Amnesty International in its annual report on human rights abuses around the world. The watchdog said "toxic" fear-mongering by anti-establishment politicians, among them US President Donald Trump and the leaders of Turkey, Hungary and the Philippines, was contributing to a global pushback against human rights.

    I want you to sit down in your high chair, put the lego away, and ask yourself why you think I chose Turkey.

    You utterly feeble-minded fuckwit.

    Pompeo calls China's treatment of Uighurs 'stain of the century'


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday called China’s treatment of its Uighur Muslim minority the “stain of the century” and accused Beijing of pressuring countries not to attend a U.S.-hosted conference on religious freedom.

    “China is home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time; it is truly the stain of the century,” Pompeo told the final day of the international conference in Washington.

    Pompeo said Chinese government officials had sought to discourage countries from attending the three-day event he has hosted, attended by 106 countries.

    “Is that consistent with the guarantee of religious belief that is found directly in the Chinese constitution?” he asked.

    Pompeo congratulated countries which had defied Chinese pressure, while adding: “If you have declined to attend for the same reason, we take note.”
