China finds this tendency as a threat to security, Wu Sike said.
“Terrorists in Iraq and Syria have set up a base where terrorists from Islamic countries, Europe, North America and China, had gathered, posing a major threat to all countries in the world. China is a country suffering from terrorist actions. Conflict settlement in Iraq and Syria will bring benefit to China and the whole world,” Chinese newspaper Huanqiu Shibao quoted the special envoy as saying on Tuesday.
Sike did not made public official reports about the number of militants coming from China’s Xinjiang-Uyghur Autonomous Region to fight for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant extremist grouping led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Meanwhile, according to some foreign media reports, he said that Chinese citizens fighting for terrorists in the Middle East might number around one hundred, most of them are members of Eastern Turkestan terrorist organisations rampaging in Xinjiang.
China’s Xinjiang-Uygur Autonomous Region where Uyghur Muslims live together with Han Chinese is believed to be a volatile region. Terrorist acts have recently become more frequent in the region. Chinese authorities shoulder responsibility for them on members and accomplices of the Islamic Movement of Eastern Turkestan. This grouping is found to be blamed for staging disorder in the Chinese autonomous region in 2009. As many as 197 people were killed and more than 1.7 thousand were wounded in riots then. A bombing staged at a street marketplace near Zhenmin Park on May 22, 2014, became one of most outrageous terrorist acts in the Chinese autonomous area. The bombing claimed 39 lives, more than 90 were wounded in that bombing.
