MOSCOW, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed condolences to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping over the deadly terrorist attacks on Thursday in Urumqi, the capital of China’s western volatile region of Xinjiang.
In his letter to the Chinese leader, Putin resolutely condemned the outrageous crime and expressed confidence that the organizers and perpetrators would be found and deservedly punished.
China’s volatile Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region is populated by Uyghur Muslims and the titular Chinese nation of Han. Militants from the Islamic East Turkestan Movement stand for the region’s secession from China and were behind a series of terrorist acts in the region targeting law enforcers and civilians.
