Turkeys Excuse: Erdogan Chases for Uighurs in Syria
26.09.2019 14:42

A few weeks before the start of municipal elections in Turkey this spring, President Erdogan had publicly accused the Chinese government of Uighurs discrimination. In the international context, he counted on the support of the United States and the European Union as it was in 2009, but stayed alone in his anti-Chinese attacks this time.


The Chinese authorities had immediately responded to Erdogan's words: the Chinese Consulate General in Izmir was closed, and the Chinese Ambassador in Ankara threatened Turkey with serious economic sanctions if it continues to criticize internal affairs of China. Taking into account the present economic situation in Ottoman state, it was hard to believe that the pragmatic Turkish leader will ignore the threats of Beijing.


After the end of elections, Erdogan’s accusatory rhetoric against China had abruptly turned into a friendly manner. First of all it was clearly reflected in the recent visit of the Turkish leader to China. The Turkish President advocated close cultural and economic ties with Beijing claiming that the two states share a "vision of the future". No word was said about the rights of Uighurs and Muslims in general.


Moreover, it looks like Erdogan in order to apologize to China for his "spring freak out", clearly ordered his subordinates in the Syrian Idlib province to begin mass arrests of Uighur Islamists with a view of follow transfer to the hands of the Chinese government. According to residents of Idlib province, Ankara has already arrested dozens of representatives of the XUAR who were fighting in the ranks of the jihadists.


Bearing in ming the urgency of radical Islam in China, Beijing is likely to accept such an "apology", because otherwise these militants could return to their historical homeland and continue Jihad in China.
