China rejected on Monday a Turkish criticism over its treatment of Uighurs, AFP reported.
According to the source, the Chinese side has already made a relevant statement to the Turkish side in this regard.
“China has made solemn representations toward Turkey. We hope the relevant Turkish persons can distinguish between right and wrong and correct their mistakes,” spokeswoman for Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying told reporters.
A UN panel of experts has said that nearly one million Uighurs and other Turkic-speaking minorities had been herded into “re-education camps” in China's northwestern Xinjiang region, where most of the country's more than 10 million Uighurs live.
Turkey, in its turn, said China's treatment of Uighurs was “a great embarrassment for humanity.”
