    China demands Turkish retraction

    BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | China demands Turkish retraction

    China has demanded that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan retract his accusation that Beijing practised genocide against ethnic Uighurs.

    Mr Erdogan made the comments after riots in the Muslim Uighur heartland of Xinjiang in which 184 people died.

    Xinjiang's capital, Urumqi, is under heavy police and military control.

    UK-based analysts say al-Qaeda-linked militants in Algeria have called for reprisals against Chinese workers in the wake of the violence.

    China's rejection of Mr Erdogan's remarks came in an editorial headlined "Don't twist facts" in the English-language newspaper China Daily.

    It said the fact that 137 of the 184 victims of the 5 July unrest were Han Chinese "speaks volumes for the nature of the event".

    The newspaper urged Mr Erdogan to "take back his remarks... which constitute interference in China's internal affairs", describing his comments as "irresponsible and groundless".
    It appears that China has underestimated the response it would recieve for stepping on the toes of Muslims. Note that now Al Qaeda is calling for reprisals. I wonder if China will keep to the same philosophy about how the U.S. should leave other countries alone now that they will be a target of terrorism. Thoughts?

    It would be interesting to see what would happen if Al Qaeda did attack any Chinese interest.

    As for Turkey making these comment that kind of rich come from them if you think about the Armenian related stuff and what they did to Arabs during the First World War.

    I know about the Armenian Christrian genocide, but what about the Arabs? I think that Al Qaeda will indeed attack Chinese workers in Africa and the ME, and maybe China will strike back. More than likely they will just pull their workers.

    During WWI the Turks consider the Arab Army comman Criminals and would excute them.
