China op­poses Malaysia’s re­lease of Uighur Mus­lims

Fiji Sun - - China News - Bei­jing: Reuters

China said on Fri­day that it res­o­lutely op­posed Malaysia’s de­ci­sion to re­lease 11 eth­nic Uighur Mus­lims from de­ten­tion and send them to Turkey, dis­re­gard­ing China’s re­quest to hand them to Bei­jing.

China was in the process of ver­i­fy­ing de­tails with Malaysia and hoped that the South-East Asian na­tion would “at­tach great im­por­tance” to its con­cerns, China’s For­eign Min­istry said in a faxed state­ment to Reuters.
