    外交部:土耳其涉疆表态把活人说成死人 非常恶劣

    外交部驳斥土耳其发言人涉疆谬论:非常恶劣,已提出严正交涉

     
     澎湃新闻记者 于潇清

      2月11日,外交部新闻发言人华春莹主持例行记者会,有记者提问:2月9日,土耳其外交部发言人就中国新疆地区有关情况和政策进行指责和批评,请问中方有何评论?

      以下为华春莹对此问题回应实录:

      我的确看到了土耳其外交部发言人的有关表态,非常恶劣。中国驻土耳其使馆已经第一时间做出了回应,我们也就此向土方提出了严正的交涉。

      首先我想提醒大家注意一个事实,土耳其外交部发言人表态中提到的维吾尔族著名民乐家艾依提在服刑第二年在监狱中去世,但昨天我还在网上看到了他的视频。表明他不仅活着而且活得非常健康。土方基于把活人说成死人的荒谬的谎言,对中方进行无端的指责,这种做法是极其错误,极不负责任的,我们对此表示坚决的反对。

      我也想借这个机会再次强调几点:

      第一,大家都知道,自20世纪90年代以来,中国境内外的三股势力在中国新疆策划并组织实施了数千起的暴力恐怖事件,造成了大量的各族无辜群众的伤亡。新疆在借鉴和吸收国际社会反恐经验的基础上,从当地的实际出发,深入开展反恐和去极端化工作,取得了明显的成效。新疆人民的安全感、幸福感和满足感得到了极大的提升。大家也都知道,去年底以来,有十几个国家的驻华使节和代表,包括土耳其在内的多国记者去新疆参观访问,看了很多地方,其中当然也包括教培中心,增加了对新疆经济社会情况的全面了解。很多人都纷纷表示,他们看到了当地人脸上洋溢着的由衷的、明朗的笑容,这些是对外界那些荒谬谎言的最有力的驳斥和回击。包括土耳其一些媒体人士去新疆参观过以后也都表示,他们清楚地看到了中国政府在打击恐怖主义,抵御极端主义方面确立并实施了清晰的战略,即实施打击恐怖活动、加快发展经济、改善民生和加强教育等一系列相互支持、相互支撑的措施,这样的战略是非常明智的,值得土耳其乃至整个世界学习。

    第三,新疆各族人民依法享有使用本族语言文字的权利,中国的宪法和民族区域自治法规定,各民族都有使用自己语言、文字的自由。新疆的广播、电视机构使用汉语、维吾尔语等多种语言进行广播和出版,新疆的高考也都使用汉语、维吾尔语、哈萨克语等5种文字的试卷。

      第四,新疆各族人民的文化权利受到法律保障和充分尊重,喀什的艾提尕尔清真寺等109座宗教文化古迹被列入全国重点文物保护单位,维吾尔木卡姆艺术和柯尔克孜史诗玛纳斯被列入联合国教科文组织的人类非物质文化遗产代表作的名录。

      事实胜于雄辩,我想任何不抱有偏见、不怀有恶意的人都会为中国56个民族团结、友爱、和谐相处感到高兴,而不是编造谎言来进行恶意的指责。最后我还想指出,土耳其也是一个多民族国家,也面临恐怖主义的威胁,在反恐问题上奉行双重标准到头来只会损人害己,我们希望土方能够不偏听、偏信,正确认识和理解中方有关政策和努力,以实际行动来增进中土之间的互信与合作。

      第二,新疆各族人民依法享有充分的宗教信仰自由。新疆现在有清真寺和教堂、寺院等宗教活动场所2.5万座,其中清真寺2.44万座,宗教院校8所。新疆地区人口是2440万,其中穆斯林人口约1300万,也就是说平均每530名穆斯林就拥有一座清真寺。而根据公开数据,土耳其人口8200万,清真寺9万座,平均910人才拥有一座清真寺。

    First working day after the Chinese New Year, Chinese foreign ministry's fury over Turkey
    节后上班第一天,外交部怒怼土耳其
    2019-02-11 17:26

    【侠客岛按】

    2月9日,土耳其外交部发言人称,中国政府在新疆地区建立“集中营”,关押100多万维吾尔族民众。

    今天下午,外交部回应:非常恶劣,已提出严正交涉。

    此前,10日,我国驻土耳其使馆就中国的民族宗教政策、新疆教培中心等问题发表谈话,对土方的言论予以回应——

    土方言论严重违背事实,中方对此表示坚决反对!

    土耳其外交部新闻发言人所称“教培中心是集中营”“是对维吾尔人有计划的种族清洗行为”“严重侵犯人权”“无法与家属取得联系”等情况,完全是无中生有、颠倒黑白。

    事实究竟怎样?不妨来看看今天外交部的回应和2月9日我国驻土耳其使馆新闻发言人的答记者问,说得很清楚。

    中国驻土耳其使馆新闻发言人2月9日表示,20世纪90年代以来,中国境内外“三股势力”(民族分裂势力、宗教极端势力、暴力恐怖势力)在中国新疆策划并组织实施了数千起暴力恐怖事件,造成大量无辜各族群众伤亡,数百名公安民警殉职,财产损失无法估算。

    这些暴恐分子令人发指的罪恶行径,不仅严重破坏了新疆安定祥和的秩序、团结进步的氛围,更是肆意践踏了新疆各族群众的生命权、健康权、财产权和发展权等基本人权。

    中国政府在借鉴吸收国际社会反恐经验的基础上,从本国实际出发,深入开展反恐和去极端化工作。教培中心根本不是土方所说的“集中营”,教培中心的最核心目标是反恐和去极端化,其主要内容是“三学一去”,即学国家通用语言文字、学法律、学职业技能,去极端化。

    就像任何国家的公民都应该会讲本国通用语言一样,中国公民应该会普通话。在任何国家法律都不能被无视、被架空。没有职业技能就难以就业,失业就容易陷入贫困,从而为极端思想传播提供土壤。这是人人皆知的道理。

    建立教培中心以来,新疆已经超过25个月未发生过暴力恐怖事件,安全形势得到极大改观。2017年全疆接待境内外游客数量超过1亿人次,增长32%;2018年游客数量超过1.5亿人次,增长约50%。这些数字充分说明新疆很安全、很稳定。

    教培中心是对外开放的。我们已经邀请12个国家的驻华使节以及包括土耳其在内的多国记者赴新疆访问,他们参观了包括教培中心在内的很多地方。令人遗憾的是,记者们去了新疆,发表了客观报道,有些人却未予理会。对于这些做法,我只能说或是心存偏见,或是另有动机。

    中土两国都面临严峻反恐形势,我们反对在反恐问题上奉行双重标准。希望土方正确认识和理解中方依法采取的有效反恐措施和去极端化努力,收回不实指责,并采取措施消除恶劣影响。

    有记者提问称,土耳其外交部发言人称中国政府试图“消灭”维吾尔人和其他穆斯林群体的种族、宗教和文化认同,严重侵犯维吾尔族人权。你对此有何评论?

    对此,中国驻土耳其使馆新闻发言人表示,上述言论与事实完全不符,中方完全不能接受。

    新疆各族人民依法享有充分的宗教信仰自由。信教和不信教完全由公民自由选择,受法律保护,任何机关、团体和个人不得干涉。新疆现有清真寺、教堂、寺院等宗教活动场所2.5万座,其中清真寺2.44万座、神职人员2.9万名、宗教院校8所。新疆地区人口2440万,其中穆斯林人口约1300万,平均530位穆斯林拥有一座清真寺。根据我看到的公开数据,土耳其人口8200万,清真寺9万座,平均910人拥有一座清真寺。

    新疆各族人民依法享有使用本族语言文字的权利。《宪法》和《民族区域自治法》规定,各民族都有使用自己语言文字的自由。全国人大和政协会议提供维吾尔、哈萨克等语言的同声传译,各民族公民有权使用本民族语言进行诉讼和选举,新疆广播电视机构使用汉、维吾尔等多种语言进行广播出版,新疆高考使用汉、维吾尔、哈萨克等5种文字试卷。

    新疆各族人民的文化权利受到法律保障和充分尊重。喀什艾提尕尔清真寺等109所宗教文化古迹被列入全国重点文物保护单位,由中央拨专款进行修缮,中国政府支持出版了濒于失传的《福乐智慧》和《突厥语大辞典》等古籍,维吾尔木卡姆艺术、柯尔克孜史诗《玛纳斯》等被列入联合国教科文组织“人类非物质文化遗产代表作名录”。

    中国政府高度重视维护和保障新疆各族人民的基本权利,是不争的事实。需要强调的是,生存权是最基本的人权,恐怖势力和极端思想严重威胁新疆安全,践踏当地人民的基本人权,中国政府的反恐举措正是为了保护包括维吾尔族人民在内的各族同胞人权。

    综上所述,那些指责中国政府试图“消灭”维吾尔族和其他穆斯林群体的种族、宗教和文化认同的说法是完全站不住脚的。

    China condemns Turkey over claim of famed musician's death
    BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Posted Feb 11, 2019 2:58 am MST

    BEIJING — China is condemning Turkey over its claim that a celebrated musician from China’s Turkic Muslim Uighur ethnic group has died in custody.

    Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Monday that a brief video clip of Abdurehim Heyit issued by state media shows he is still alive.

    She told a daily briefing that the Turkish side had “made a very bad mistake which is quite irresponsible.”

    Turkey’s foreign ministry issued a statement Saturday calling China’s treatment of Uighurs “a great cause of shame for humanity,” in a rare show of public criticism by a majority Muslim nation. China has interned an estimated 1 million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in re-education camps.

    Geneva votes to ban religious symbols on public employees

    Geneva residents on Sunday voted for a controversial new "secularism law", which will among other things ban elected officials and public employees from wearing visible religious symbols.


    More than 55 percent of voters in the Swiss canton backed the law, final results showed, despite warnings that it could lead to discrimination, particularly against Muslim women. Some critics think it might violate the constitution.

    Read also: Swiss canton of St Gallen overwhelmingly votes for 'burqa ban'

    Geneva Canton, which for centuries has been a centre of religious freedom and tolerance, has been striving to replace a law on the books since 1907.

    The new law's stated ambition is to expand the dialogue between religious groups and the state, and to better define the limits to religious expression in the public sphere.

    Supporters say it will help clarify existing principles in the Geneva Constitution to protect the religious freedom of believers and non-believers alike.

    The right-leaning cantonal parliament adopted the text last April. It also has the backing of Geneva's three main religious communities, the Protestant Church, the Roman Catholic Church and the Old Catholic Church.

    But the far left, the Greens, feminist organisations, unions and Muslim groups all opposed it, and collected enough signatures to force the issue to a public vote.

    Critics claim the law will have an oppressive and discriminatory effect, with some condemning it as Islamophobic and warning that Muslim women who wear a headscarf are being targeted.

    Teachers in Geneva are already banned from wearing visible religious symbols, including the hijab. The new text would extend this ban to elected officials and any local or cantonal public employees who comes in contact with the public.

    Two legal appeals have been filed against the new text which could block it from being adopted, despite Sunday's vote.

    The Geneva Evangelical Network has lodged an appeal against a provision in the text that would ban religious gatherings in public.

    A second appeal has been lodged by the Green Party against a last-minute amendment to the text banning elected officials and cantonal and local government employees who have contact with the public from wearing visible religious symbols.

    "I am hopeful that the courts will side with us, since this law goes against the Swiss Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights," Sabine Tighemounine, a local elected official for the Green Party who wears a Muslim headscarf, told the ATS news agency Sunday.

    Sunday's vote did not spell final defeat, she said. "The process is just getting started."

    The Geneva vote was among a range of local, regional and national issues voted on across Switzerland Sunday as part of the country's famous direct democratic system.

    At the national level, voters resoundingly rejected an initiative brought by the Green Party's youth wing, which called for a law to rein in urban sprawl by blocking zoning of new construction land.

    This is actually one of the dumbest thing I have seen in a while and I’m not even exaggerating.
