In a statement on Saturday, Turkish foreign ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said it’s “no longer a secret” that China has arbitrarily detained more than a million Uighurs in “concentration camps”.
He said the Turkic Muslim population faced pressure and “systematic assimilation” in western China.
“It is no longer a secret that more than one million Uighur Turks, who are exposed to arbitrary arrests, are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in concentration centers and prisons,” Aksoy said.
