Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region held the fourth press conference on Xinjiang-related issues in Beijing.

Tianshan net News: On February 10th, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region held the fourth press conference on Xinjiang-related issues in Beijing. The following is a transcript of the press conference:

On February 10, the press conference was held. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Bi Haibo: Welcome to the fourth press conference on Xinjiang-related issues. Today, Xu Guixiang, deputy director of the Propaganda Department of the Party Committee of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Yiliang Anayiti, spokesman of the Information Office of the People’s Government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and graduates from teaching and training centers engaged in all walks of life are specially invited to Beijing (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) to attend this press conference. The theme of our conference today is about the students of Xinjiang Education and Training Center.

Now let’s enter the question-and-answer session. The first question is asked by the reporter of People’s Daily.

People’s Daily: We know from the white paper "Vocational Skills Education and Training in Xinjiang" that the teaching and training center helps people infected with religious extremism, who commit minor crimes or violate the law to get rid of religious extreme thoughts. Can graduates please talk about how they are infected with religious extreme thoughts and how the teaching and training center helps to get rid of religious extreme thoughts?

On February 10th, Xu Guixiang, Vice Minister of Propaganda Department of the Party Committee of the Autonomous Region, answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Xu Guixiang: In this question, please invite Alimujiang Mohammad Aili, a graduate student from Hotan City, Hotan Prefecture, and Baihetiguli Tursun, a graduate student from Wensu County, Aksu Prefecture, to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Alimujiang Mohammad Aili answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Alimujiang Mohammad Aili: Hello, my name is Alimujiang Mohammad Aili, and I am 28 years old. I am a graduate student of Hotan Education and Training Center in Hotan area, and I am currently working in a real estate company.

I used to do jade business in Hotan, during which I met several so-called "friends". They said to me, "Heaven has a more beautiful paradise than heaven and earth, where you can marry 72 of the most beautiful wives, as well as endless money and delicious food." I asked them curiously, "How can I get into heaven?" They told me: "You can go to heaven by praying to’ Hu Da’ every day, but there are conditions for going to heaven, that is, participating in’ jihad’ and killing infidels". In order to live a life in heaven, I believe their stories and hang out with them all day. Later, they gave me a passport and a road map to participate in the "jihad" and asked me to leave Guangdong and go abroad to participate in the "jihad". So, I gave up my business and prepared to realize my dream of "jihad martyrdom into heaven".

In the process of leaving the country, because I took a fake passport, I was caught by the public security organs of Guangdong Province, and they sent me back to Hotan City. Only after being informed by the public security department did I know that I had committed the crime of crossing the border and should be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of less than three years. At that time, I felt stupid. I thought I was going to heaven, but I ended up going to prison, and I was very scared. The police told me that in order to save people like me, the government specially opened a teaching and training center. He enlightened me to study in the teaching and training center.

In the training center, I studied the Constitution, Criminal Law, Anti-terrorism Law, Regulations on Religious Affairs, Depolarization Regulations and other laws and regulations, and learned what is legal, what is illegal, what can be done and what can’t be done. Recognizing the ugly faces of those religious extremists, they just want to turn us into murderous demons and let us be cannon fodder and do illegal and criminal things. At that moment, I realized that all the so-called "friends" told me were false, and "jihad martyrdom into heaven" was also false. I regret my stupid behavior very much and almost ruined my life. If there is no education and training center to save me, then I will definitely fall into the abyss of sin and become a murderous devil. Now that I think about it, I am very scared.

In the teaching and training center, I also learned marketing knowledge. After graduation, I found a stable job in a real estate company and had a satisfactory income. At the beginning of last year, I got married and bought a car. When my parents saw my change, they were all happy for me. My family is now very happy and grateful to the education and training center.

Xu Guixiang: Next, I would like to invite Baheti Guli Tursun to brief us.

On February 10th, Baheti Guli Tursun answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Baihetiguli Tursun: My name is Baihetiguli Tursun. I am a graduate student of Wensu County in Aksu region, and now I am the logistics supervisor of township hydropower stations.

A few years ago, my daughter was ill, and a friend around me advised me not to let the child go to the hospital to "suffer". It was more useful to find the village’s "Imam" Ahmad Mohammad than to find a doctor, and gave me his phone number. With a try attitude, I found the "Imam". While pretending to treat the children, he told me that "government-run hospitals can’t go, and those Han doctors are pagans, and the medicines they prescribe are not halal, which will kill people." "Don’t associate with Han people, and make friends with these pagans, which is going to hell."

From then on, every time my child fell ill, I went to the "imam" and listened to his extreme religious thoughts. Slowly, I began to hate the Han people around me and thought they were "pagans". In order to avoid them, I even quit my job at the hydropower station, and I didn’t go to the shop opened by the Han people to buy things, thinking that what they sold was unclean and not halal. It’s time for my daughter to go to school, and I won’t let her go to school. I think the school is run by the government, and books and pencils are not halal. My behavior scared my relatives and friends around me. Under their persuasion, I came to the teaching and training center to study.

In the teaching and training center, I found that many students, like me, listened to the bad words of these bad guys and were infected with religious extreme thoughts. Their jobs were gone, their families were separated and their family ties were far away, and they all hated religious extreme thoughts. Through studying in the education and training center, I learned a lot of legal knowledge, what is true Islam, and that the "imam" was not a religious person at all, but a terrorist and extremist. Later, he went to prison for carrying out terrorist activities.

After graduating from the teaching and training center, with the help of community cadres, I returned to work in the hydropower station. Now, I have been promoted to the position of logistics supervisor, and my salary and income are higher than before, and my family’s economic conditions have also improved. My family of four lives happily.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to ask a question from the Pakistan Associated Press.

Pakistan’s Yonhap News Agency asked: Some western media and institutions said that the education and training center was a "concentration camp" and a "detention camp" where millions of Uighurs and other ethnic minorities were detained. What do you think of this?

Xu Guixiang: I would like to ask Mr. Yiliang Anayiti, spokesman of the Information Office of the People’s Government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, to answer this question.

On February 10th, the spokesman of the Information Office of the People’s Government of the Autonomous Region, Yiliang Anaiti, answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Yiliang Anayiti: I emphasize again that there is no so-called "concentration camp" or "detention camp" in Xinjiang. Some foreign politicians, media and institutions always vilify Xinjiang Vocational Skills Education and Training Center as a so-called "concentration camp", which is totally ulterior motives. In fact,The vocational skills education and training center established in Xinjiang according to law is essentially the same as the DDP (Transformation and Disengagement Project) established in Britain and the depolarization center established in France. It is a useful attempt and active exploration for preventive counter-terrorism and depolarization, and conforms to the principles and spirit of a series of anti-terrorism resolutions such as the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and the United Nations Action Plan against Violent Extremism.

The education and training center strictly implements the basic principles of respecting and protecting human rights in the Constitution and laws of China, fully guarantees that the personal dignity of the students is not infringed, and it is strictly forbidden to insult and abuse the students in any way; Fully guarantee students’ personal freedom and communication freedom, and implement boarding management, so that students can go home and take time off; Fully guarantee the students’ right to use their own spoken and written languages, and all rules and regulations, curricula, recipes, etc. use both the national common spoken and written languages and the spoken and written languages of ethnic minorities; Fully respect the customs and habits of students from all ethnic groups, provide a wide variety of nutritious muslim food free of charge, and give each student a daily food subsidy of 20 yuan; Fully respect and protect students’ freedom of religious belief, and religious students can decide whether to participate in legal religious activities when they go home. The teaching and training center has complete living facilities, and the dormitory is uniformly equipped with radio, television and air conditioning. There are sports venues such as basketball, volleyball and table tennis, cultural venues such as reading room, computer room and projection room, and cultural performance venues such as small auditorium and open-air stage, and extracurricular activities such as folk songs and dances and sports competitions are held regularly to meet the needs of students in study, life and entertainment to the maximum extent. Set up a medical room to provide medical services to students 24 hours a day. Minor illnesses can be treated in the infirmary, and severe emergencies can be quickly sent to the hospital for treatment. Set up a legal consultation room to help students solve legal difficulties and questions in time. Set up a psychological counseling room, provide psychological counseling services, and care about the mental health of students. There are such "concentration camps" in the world.Detention camp? ! In October 2019, all the trainees who participated in the "three studies and one trip" have graduated, and with the help of the government, they have achieved stable employment, improved their quality of life and led a normal life.

The so-called "education and training center holds millions of Uighurs and other ethnic minorities" is even more unfounded rumors and slanders. Vocational skills education and training carried out in Xinjiang according to law has always insisted on not linking with specific regions, nationalities and religions, and it has nothing to do with whether they are Uighurs or not and whether they believe in Islam. The American independent news investigation website "Gray Zone" once published an article revealing that,This sensational rumor was fabricated and spread by non-governmental organizations and anti-China elements supported by the U.S. government. First, the "China Human Rights Defender Network" came to the absurd conclusion that "of the 20 million people in Xinjiang, 10% are detained in’ re-education camps’" only by interviewing and roughly estimating eight Uighurs abroad. Second, Zheng Guoen, a pseudo-scholar, made up such a rumor according to a media report. Even Zheng Guoen himself admitted that his estimate was "uncertain".On July 25th, 2020, Max Bruchtel, editor of the "Grey Zone" website, American award-winning journalist and best-selling author, said at the international symposium on "Rejecting the New Cold War" that the alarming data reported by many media about the detention of millions of Uighurs in Xinjiang, "the source of the news can’t stand the test".

In August, 2019, the white paper "Vocational Skills Education and Training in Xinjiang" issued by the Press Office of the State Council, People’s Republic of China (PRC), systematically expounded the practical background, legal basis, teaching and training contents, management measures, human rights protection and remarkable results of teaching and training in Xinjiang. On August 24th, 2020, China Central Radio and Television General Station Chinese International Channel broadcasted a TV feature film "Lies and Truth-Documentary of Xinjiang Education and Training", which vividly showed the study and life of the education and training center and students with real stories and scenes. Today, we also brought these materials and gave them to journalists and friends after the meeting. I believe that after reading them, you will understand the real teaching and training center and teaching and training work.

Bi Haibo: Let’s ask Xinhua News Agency reporters questions.

Xinhua News Agency asked: We saw some reports that "the trainees were tortured and even had their liver and kidney removed". At the same time, people who claim to have teaching and training experience overseas also broke the news to the media that they were "brainwashed and abused" in the teaching and training center. May I ask the graduates whether these statements are credible?

Xu Guixiang: In this question, please ask Mai Dingjiang Yili Mu, a graduate student from atushi Education and Training Center in Kezhou, and Aili Tuniazi, a graduate student from awat Education and Training Center in Aksu, to introduce relevant information.

On February 10th, Mai Dingjiang Yi Limu answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Maidingjiang Yilimu: My name is Maidingjiang Yilimu, and I am a graduate student of atushi Education and Training Center in Kezhou. Now I have established an extracurricular tutoring institution for primary and secondary schools.

As a graduate student, I know the situation of the teaching and training center very well. The teaching and training center is a school with spacious and bright classrooms, and each room is equipped with multimedia teaching equipment, which is convenient for us to study in class. We have six classes every day from Monday to Friday, and rest normally on Saturday, Sunday and national holidays. At school, you can take time off for work and contact your family and friends. I remember that my parents called me that year and said that a relative was getting married, so I took a day off to attend his wedding and brought candy to my classmates when I came back. At school, our after-school life is very rich. We often hold basketball games, tug-of-war games, cultural performances and other cultural and sports activities. Our class also won the first place in the tug-of-war competition. The school respects our customs very much, and provides us with free halal meals such as noodles, pilaf, thin paper bags and soup rice every day. When we are sick, the teacher takes care of us, just like relatives. I remember one time I sprained my foot playing basketball and didn’t go to the restaurant to eat. After the teacher knew it, he brought me plaster and a plate of minced meat and noodles. I was very moved.

As for the overseas media’s statement that "the trainees were tortured and their liver and kidney were removed", it is totally a rumor and slander. My classmates and I are very free and happy in the teaching and training center. We have never been abused, not to mention having our liver and kidney removed. Now we are all very healthy and our families are very happy. Those people who claim to be teaching and training students abroad, the lies you made up may deceive others, but can you still deceive us? Thank you all.

Xu Guixiang: Let’s invite Ali Tunyazi to continue to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Ali Tuniazi answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Aili Tuniazi: My name is Aili Tuniazi. I am a graduate student of awat Education and Training Center in Aksu, and now I am the legal representative of a construction company.

In the teaching and training center, teachers are very concerned about us. What moves us most is that our class teacher can remember all the students’ birthdays, and whenever students celebrate their birthdays, they will receive her blessings. Moreover, she can discover the strengths of each of our students and always tries to encourage everyone. Everyone likes to chat with her, feeling that she is not only a teacher, but also a "bosom sister". I remember that when I first arrived at the teaching and training center, the class teacher knew that my country’s common language and writing foundation was good, so he made me a "teacher" and taught my classmates to learn. At that time, I was both excited and proud. At school, teachers love us like family members, and students help each other like brothers and sisters. We have forged a deep friendship, and we still keep in touch with each other frequently. Just last Saturday, several classmates and I invited our head teacher to have a meal and talked about many things in the teaching and training center. Everyone missed that time.

My classmates and I have never heard of anyone being abused or having their liver and kidney removed. You see, we graduates are so cheerful and healthy now, as if we had been abused? Please stop telling lies with your eyes open!

Bi Haibo: Please ask a reporter from China International Television (CGTN).

China Television International (CGTN) asked: Some people abroad revealed to the media that female students in the education and training center were forced to inject unknown drugs or get an IUD, and there were cases of forced sterilization. Are these facts true?

Xu Guixiang: In order to solve this problem, we invited two female students, Tudiguli Nur and Mirenza Khare, who graduated from Kashgar Education and Training Center, and asked them to talk about this.

On February 10th, Tudi Guli Noor answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Tudi Guli Nur: Hello, my name is Tudi Guli Nur, and I come from Kashgar. I am a graduate student of teaching and training, and what some people outside China say is deceptive. After I graduated, I gave birth to a girl, who is almost one year old. Look at my daughter’s photo, isn’t it cute? If we are "sterilized", how can we have children? Thank you all.

Xu Guixiang: Let’s invite Mirenza Kage to brief us on the situation.

On February 10th, Mirenza Kage answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Mirenza Khare: My name is Mirenza Khare. I am a graduate student of Kashgar Education and Training Center, and now I am the chairman of the village women’s federation in Seman Township, Kashgar City.

During this time, I heard someone outside the country say that "the education and training center forced female students to inject unknown drugs and get birth control rings", and I was very angry! It is impossible for such a thing to happen in our teaching and training center. I have two children now, and I can have another one according to the national family planning policy. I got married after graduating from the dormitory with Gulanbel Amat, and gave birth to a very lovely daughter last year.

Some time ago, when we were having dinner together, she told me that when her daughter grew up, he and her husband planned to regenerate. Some people outside the country talk nonsense all day, which makes us hate like flies.

I am the chairman of the Women’s Federation in our village, and I deal with women every day. Many sisters have told me that they think it is particularly good to be gifted and educated. Children can receive a good education and grow up healthily, and women also have time and energy to do what they want to do. We women can also enjoy many reproductive health policies. For example, the government provides us with free health check-ups every year, and also provides premarital check-ups and prenatal health check-ups for women of childbearing age. Everyone is very satisfied. Thank you all.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to ask the reporter of China-Arab Satellite TV.

Question from China-Arab Satellite TV: On February 2, the British BBC disclosed the so-called "experience" of Tursunai Ziauton, a graduate student of beauty sex education, and published a report saying that "women in detention camps were systematically raped, sexually abused and tortured" in Xinjiang. A spokesman for the State Council in the United States also responded by saying that he was "deeply disturbed by reports of systematic rape of Muslims in refugee camps in China" and reiterated that "China committed crimes against humanity and genocide in Xinjiang, which shocked people’s conscience and must bear serious consequences". What’s your comment on this?

Xu Guixiang: I’ll answer this first. I solemnly declare once again that the so-called "crimes against humanity and genocide committed in Xinjiang" is a "century lie" deliberately concocted by Pompeo and others, and it is the biggest framed case in human history. The remarks made by the spokesman of the State Council in the United States seriously trampled on international law and the basic norms of international relations, seriously interfered in China’s internal affairs and seriously hurt the feelings of people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. In this regard, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang expressed strong condemnation and resolute opposition!

The so-called Xinjiang-related issues are not ethnic, religious or human rights issues at all, but anti-terrorism, anti-secession and anti-extremism. Xinjiang has always adhered to holding high the banner of the rule of law, insisting that anti-terrorism and depolarization are not linked to specific ethnic groups, religions and regions. We set up a teaching and training center in accordance with the law, aiming at eliminating terrorism and religious extremism at the source, which fully conforms to the principles and spirit of a series of anti-terrorism resolutions such as the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and the United Nations Action Plan against Violent Extremism. In recent years, the preventive anti-terrorism and depolarization work carried out in Xinjiang has achieved remarkable results. There have been no cases of terrorism for more than four consecutive years, which conforms to the people of all ethnic groups’ longing and expectation for peace and stability for many years. This is the greatest guarantee for human rights, and there is no such thing as "crimes against humanity" and "genocide"! ?

According to the verification, the real identity of Tursunai Ziauton mentioned in the BBC report is Tursunayi Ziyaodeng, female, 43 years old, Uygur, from xinyuan county, Yili Prefecture, who left the country on September 26, 2019. After leaving the country, in order to defraud the refugee status, she was willing to be a "pawn" and "actor" of anti-China forces and shamelessly fabricated her so-called "encounter" in the education and training center many times. But these lies have been hit in the face by facts again and again. For example, last year, she lied to the outside world that women who were "detained" in the education and training center were either sterilized by surgery or received drugs to stop menstruation. She said that the tubal ligation and sterilization operation she was forced to undergo was carried out in an irreversible way. As a matter of fact, she has never had birth control surgery at all, and all her relatives know that she is inherently infertile.

It is also known that Tursunnayi Ziyaodeng had two marriages, and divorced her first husband, Tursun Jiang Ahematitian, because she was unable to have children, and failed to have children with her current husband. Her so-called "biological daughter" in Kazakhstan is actually the daughter of her current husband’s niece. Do people like her still need to give her "compulsory birth control"? This time, she did the same thing again, making up that she had been "tortured and raped" in the training center, which is even more nonsense.

The BBC reported that "women in detention camps are systematically raped, sexually abused and tortured" in Xinjiang, which is sheer nonsense. The teaching and training center strictly implements the constitution and laws of our country, and ensures that the basic rights of the trainees are not violated. It is impossible to have the problem of "sexual assault and torture".

Xu Guixiang: Today, we invited a female student who graduated from teaching and training in Kashgar in Nur Namaitihage to talk about her views on this issue.

On February 10th, I was answering a reporter’s question in Nur Namaitihage. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Zainur Namaitihage: Hello, my name is Zainur Namaitihage, and I am a graduate student of Shufu County Education and Training Center. I am currently the chairman of Bercy Village Women’s Federation in Arik, Zhanmin Township. During our female students’ stay in the training center, all rights were fully guaranteed, and the teachers were very kind to us. As a graduate student of teaching and training, I want to solemnly declare that no female student has been sexually assaulted in the teaching and training center. The BBC is talking nonsense. It’s all nonsense! All our female students are very angry! We want to warn the BBC and those who spread rumors that if we insult our female students again, we will pursue your responsibility through legal channels and save our reputation! Thank you all.

Xu Guixiang: On the issue concerning Xinjiang, the BBC has always resorted to fraud and deliberately created troubles. I personally received interviews from BBC reporters in Xinjiang. During this period, we made warm and thoughtful arrangements, frankly and openly communicated, fully satisfied their interviews and showed the greatest sincerity. However, their subsequent reports were quite different and seriously inconsistent with the facts. Some time ago, BBC reporters forcibly filmed Aksu without the consent of the interviewee, and without interviewing any Uighurs, they pretended to have "conclusive evidence" of the existence of large-scale "forced labor" in Xinjiang by using only a few non-real satellite images and the so-called reports of anti-China people, and even openly forced foreign companies investing and setting up factories in Xinjiang to evacuate. This practice seriously deviates from the professional ethics of journalism, from the objective, balanced and fair position, and is seriously inconsistent with the facts. It fully exposes the sinister intention of the BBC to mislead people and discredit Xinjiang for political purposes, and also destroys the reputation of the BBC as an internationally renowned media.

Recently, there have been many rumors about this kind and some Xinjiang "actors", and all media reporters and friends are also concerned about it, and we also responded in time. For example, regarding the situation of Guli Bahar Maihamuti Jiang, a Xinjiang resident in France, Mr. Yiliang Anayiti has already introduced it at the last press conference on Xinjiang-related issues. Recently, there are still media inquiries. I would like to take this opportunity to ask Mr. Yiliang Anayiti to brief you on the situation again.

Yiliang Anayiti: Now let me introduce the situation of Guli Bahar Maihamuti River again. Guli Bahar Mehmutijiang, female, born in China, Uygur, 55 years old, from Karamay, Xinjiang, left her post for a long time and went out of business. She is a retired employee in the Engineering Technology Company of Xinjiang Oilfield Company. She is a separatist and terrorist through and through. His self-proclaimed experience in Xinjiang is pure "nonsense".

It has been found out that Guli Bahar Maihamuti is a member of the separatist organization "World Peace Council" and has been engaged in separatist and terrorist activities for a long time. In 1985, together with her husband Abdul Karim Haitiwaji, she participated in a separatist demonstration in Urumqi in response to the organization of the veteran separatist Duolikun Aisha. Later, she and her husband joined the separatist organization "World Peace Council", secretly carried out separatist activities and plotted terrorist activities.

On May 26th, 2006, Guli Bahar Mehmutijiang left the country with his eldest daughter Guli Humar Abdul Karim and his second daughter Guli Gail Abdul Karim, holding passports of the People’s Republic of China, and lived with her husband Abdul Karim Haitiwaji (vice chairman of the French branch of the World Peace Council) who settled in France as a "political asylum". Later, together with her husband, she stepped up ties with the leaders of the "East Turkistan" organization, and planned a series of separatist activities such as anti-China demonstrations in July 2009 in response to the "July 5" incident in Urumqi. Her daughter Gulihumar Abdul Karim was also induced to join the "World Peace Council" and wore the "East Turkistan" flag to participate in anti-China demonstrations.

At the same time, Guli Bahar Maihamuti Jiang and her husband also secretly linked with domestic contacts in an attempt to incite and create terrorist activities. In 2009, she returned to China on the grounds of visiting relatives, participated in inciting the "July 5" incident in Urumqi, and attempted to incite similar incidents in Karamay. Subsequently, from July to August 2012, from February to March 2014, and from April to May 2016, she entered the country several times with her husband and daughter in an attempt to incite and create terrorist activities in China.

In November, 2016, Guli Bahar Maihamuti once again entered China in an attempt to incite and create terrorist activities under the guise of returning to China for retirement. Because Guli Bahar Mehmutijiang was suspected of separatism and terrorism, after his return to China, the public security organs arrested him according to law after close investigation.

On January 29th, 2017, the public security organ filed a case for investigation against Guli Bahar Mehmutijiang, and took criminal detention measures on the same day. In the process of being investigated by the public security organs, Gu Gu first confessed truthfully, trying to conceal the crime of sheltering himself and his family and making false certificates. Because his trick of making false certificates was discovered, Gugu changed his face again. While continuing to conceal his terrorist crimes, he claimed to realize the harm of his husband’s and daughter’s separatist behavior and pleaded guilty and repented. The case-handling organ considered that he had pleaded guilty and repented, and made a decision not to prosecute according to law. During his criminal detention, all his legal rights were guaranteed according to law.

Since then, Guli Bahar Maihamuti has been living a normal life in Xinjiang, visiting relatives and friends, traveling and playing in Urumqi, Karamay, Yili and Altay for many times. During his stay in Xinjiang, Gu Gu also took the initiative to write a repentance book, saying that it was illegal for her husband and eldest daughter to engage in separatist and extremist activities, and advised her husband and eldest daughter not to engage in criminal activities again. Considering that Guli Bahar Maihamuti Jiang is suspected of committing a crime, but her eldest daughter needs to be taken care of when she is pregnant and in labor, the relevant domestic departments agree to her application and allow her to leave the country for humanitarian reasons. On August 21st, 2019, Guli Bahar Maihamuti left for France.

After leaving the country, Guli Bahar Maihamuti not only didn’t appreciate the lenient treatment, but reappeared the nature of separatists and terrorists and fabricated all kinds of so-called "encounters" at home. She claimed that she was "tricked into going back to China for arrest". In fact, she took the initiative to return to China on the pretext that she had to go back to China and negotiate with the unit to sign the Internal Retirement Agreement for Employees of Xinjiang Oilfield Company. She claimed that she was sentenced to "re-education" for seven years. In fact, the judicial organs have never investigated her criminal responsibility, and there is no such thing as "re-education". How can we talk about "re-education" for seven years? As for her claim that she was "detained", "abused" and "sterilized", it is not worth refuting. She has been visiting relatives and friends and traveling in Urumqi, Karamay, Yili and Altay. Where did she get "detained" and "abused"? What’s even more ridiculous is that she is 55 years old. Does she still need to be sterilized?

At the same time, people who are slightly familiar with Guli Bahar Maihamuti River know that she is of poor quality, lazy and chaotic in her private life. During her life in China, she committed adultery with others and was reported by her neighbors. After she left the country this time, in order to fawn on the anti-China forces, she conspired with the "World Peace Council" to fabricate a series of lies, which once again exposed her bad conduct of being full of lies and having no sense of shame.

Bi Haibo: Now please ask the reporter of Global Times to ask questions.

Global Times asked: Some overseas media said that Xinjiang Education and Training Center forced students to work and produce products under the guise of vocational skills training. Can you ask the students to talk about whether this has happened to them in the teaching and training center?

Xu Guixiang: For this question, please ask Hilary Emailjiang, a graduate student of Mo Yuxian Education and Training Center in Hotan area, to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Hilary Emailjiang answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Hilary Aimerjiang: Hello, my name is Hilary Aimerjiang, and I am a graduate student of Mo Yuxian Education and Training Center in Hotan area. Some foreign media said that the education and training center forced our students to work, which is nonsense. There is no such thing at all.

The teaching and training center offers many majors, such as animal husbandry, beauty salon, computer technology, sewing technology, commercial marketing, fashion design, food processing, hotel management, etc., all in order to let our students master the employment skills and find jobs smoothly in the future. You can choose your major according to your hobbies, without anyone forcing you. Take the students in our class for example. Some students choose food processing, some choose sewing technology, and some choose hotel management. I like playing computer since I was a child, so I chose computer technology as my major. In the process of learning, I am fascinated by drawing software, because it can show what I think in my mind on the computer through two-dimensional or three-dimensional graphics. So I seriously asked the teacher for advice in class and delved into it myself after class, and soon I was able to master it skillfully, and I especially liked interior decoration design.

All the majors we choose need to study theoretical courses before they can enter the practical operation stage, and the practical operation stage will not produce products. Our students who study food processing don’t sell cakes, but usually share them with other students. Students who study sewing technology practice with some corner cloth and do not produce clothes; Students who study hotel management, the classroom is a simulated hotel environment, and they will not produce products; The home improvement works I designed are all my own, and the school has never asked me for them. It is incredible that some foreign media should regard our training operation as forced labor.

After graduation, I opened an interior design and decoration company, engaged in one-stop service from design to construction. I use the drawing software learned in the teaching and training center to design home improvement renderings, and customers are willing to find me to decorate after seeing what it looks like after decoration. Now I have more and more customers. The number of employees in the company has grown from 2 at first to nearly 20 now, and I can earn more than 300,000 yuan every year. Thank you all.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to ask a question from the Indonesian antara News Agency.

Question from Indonesian antara News Agency: Some western media claimed that the students in the education and training center had no personal freedom and their right to freedom of religious belief was deprived. Can you ask the graduates to talk about whether this is the case?

Xu Guixiang: Thank you for your question. Please ask Alimujiang Ahemat, a graduate student from shache county Education and Training Center in Kashgar, to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Alimujiang Ahimat answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Alimujiang Ahemat: Hello, my name is Alimujiang Ahemat. I am a graduate student of shache county Education and Training Center in Kashgar, and now I am a middle-level supervisor of a company.

The education and training center has never restricted our personal freedom. Every weekend, I go home to accompany my family and help my parents do housework. I celebrate with my family on traditional festivals such as Eid al-Adha. For students who are far away from home, the school has arranged a weekend shuttle bus for everyone to ride for free. Something happened at home, and we can ask for leave at any time. Usually, we can contact our family by phone and video. When I talk to my family by video, I often tell them about the education and training center, the new knowledge I have learned, and talk to them about my future plans.

Through study, I know that respecting and protecting freedom of religious belief is a basic policy of our country. I also learned from studying the Regulations on Religious Affairs that it is entirely up to us to choose whether we believe in religion or not. I know that the school is a teaching place and religious activities are not allowed. In the training center, it is also stipulated in this way. But on holidays, when we get home, we can decide for ourselves whether to go to church or to the mosque to listen to the Imam’s Koran. No one has ever interfered.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to ask a question from the reporter of China Daily.

"China Daily" asked: Some people outside the country claimed that the trainees were forced to arrange jobs after graduation, and their income was low, and their personal freedom was restricted and they were monitored. Can you ask the graduates to talk about it? Is this really the case? How did they find a job and what are their current working and living conditions?

Xu Guixiang: For this question, please invite Mohammad Abdulla Maiti Tursun, a graduate student from Qira County Education and Training Center in Hotan area, to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Mohammad Abdullah Maiti Tulson answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Mohammad Abdulla Maiti Tursun: Hello, my name is Abdulla Maiti Tursun of Mohammad. I am a graduate student of Qira County Education and Training Center in Hotan area, and now I am the department manager of a construction company.

After graduating from the teaching and training center, I was recommended by a friend to work in a sand and stone factory in Qira County, mainly responsible for office paperwork, with a monthly salary of 3,000-4,000 yuan. Because of my personality, I couldn’t sit still in the office, so after the contract expired, I quit my job in the sand and stone factory. Later, in the talent exchange market in Qira County, I saw a construction company recruiting people, and the salary was relatively high and the welfare treatment was very good. I applied for this company and signed a labor contract. In the company, we work 8 hours a day. After work, I usually go home and sometimes go shopping and have dinner with my colleagues. In the company, we have a vacation every year. Last year, when I was on vacation, I went to Zhengzhou and Kaifeng with my colleagues. Every traditional festival such as Spring Festival, Jizi Festival and Eid al-Adha, the company will have a holiday and distribute daily necessities such as beef, mutton and rice flour oil to employees.

In the company, I became the backbone of the company’s business in less than a year because of my hard work and knowledge of architecture. Now I am the manager of the company’s engineering department, with a monthly salary of more than 8,000 yuan. Last June, with the money I earned, I built a house of more than 80 square meters in the village, decorated it beautifully, and bought home appliances and furniture such as TV, sofa and wardrobe. Last September, I got married. When I got married, I bought my wife a gold necklace and a gold ring, and she liked it very much. After getting married, we also bought a car. When we have a rest on Saturday and Sunday, my wife and I will drive to the surrounding counties and cities to play. We are now living happily. In the future, I will continue to work in the company, learn more management knowledge, and strive to be promoted to a higher position and get more wages.

Some people abroad say that we are "forced to arrange jobs after graduation, with low income, restricted personal freedom and monitored", which is nonsense. If we are forced to arrange work and our personal freedom is restricted, can I resign from my original enterprise? Can I be the department manager of a construction company? If our income is low, can I afford to build a house and buy a car?

Xu Guixiang: If you have a chance, all of you here can visit Abdulla Maiti Tulson’s new house in Mohammad.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to ask a question from a reporter from China News Agency.

China News Agency asked: Can you ask the graduates to talk about what they have learned in the teaching and training center and what they have gained? How do the knowledge and skills they have learned help their work and life?

Xu Guixiang: In this question, please ask Alimu McMaitimin, a graduate student of Pishan County Education and Training Center in Hotan area, to introduce his situation.

On February 10th, Alimu McMatimin answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Alimu McMaitimin: My name is Alimu McMaitimin. I am a graduate student of Pishan County Education and Training Center in Hotan area, and now I work in a rabbit factory.

When we are in the training center, we can learn the national common language, laws and regulations, vocational skills and so on. Through study, my national common language level has been greatly improved. At the same time, I also learned a lot of legal knowledge, made a basic judgment on right and wrong, and learned what is good and what is bad. I’m a farmer, and I’ve always been particularly interested in farming. When I learned that there were courses in the training center to learn farming techniques, I signed up. In the past, I thought that raising cattle and sheep was something we farmers did every day, and there was nothing difficult. After studying the knowledge of animal husbandry systematically, I realized that it is not easy to really raise livestock. For example, there is a lot of knowledge about how to make livestock grow well and not get sick, and how to breed scientifically!

After graduation, I successfully applied for a job in a rabbit farm by using the breeding skills I learned in the teaching and training center and signed a labor contract. Now I mainly feed rabbits, clean rabbit huts, breed, breed, prevent epidemic and separate cages. Through hard work, I became the backbone technician in the factory, and the director also trusted me very much. Some time ago, he went back to his hometown to visit relatives, and I was responsible for everything in the factory. I think this is my recognition and affirmation, and I am very happy.

Now, our living conditions have improved and we have some savings. I am very happy now. In the future, I will work harder, earn more money and let my family live a better life. Thank you all.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to invite the reporter from CCTV News Center to ask questions.

Question from CCTV News Center: It is understood that many students have achieved stable employment after graduating from the teaching and training center, and some have even become village cadres and township cadres. Can you ask them to talk about their current working life?

Xu Guixiang: Let’s invite Alimujiang Yusupu, a graduate student from Akto County Education and Training Center in Kezhou, and Abliz Aze, a graduate student from Hotan County in Hotan area, to talk about their current situation. They are village cadres and township cadres respectively.

On February 10th, Alimujiang Yusupu answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Alimujiang Yusupu: My name is Alimujiang Yusupu, and I come from Baren Township, Akto County, Kezhou.

In the past, my education level was low, I wanted to go out to work but I didn’t have any skills. I was addicted to watching horror videos all day and hanging out with some "friends". My mother was very sad to see me like this, so she persuaded me to go to the teaching and training center. There, I not only enhanced my legal awareness, but also improved my national common language level quickly. I also learned several skills such as animal husbandry, mechanical maintenance and computer.

After graduation, I came home, because my country has a good level of common language and many skills, and I became famous in the village, so I can be regarded as a "universal" person. In addition, my personality is cheerful and I like to help others. My fellow villagers all recognize me. Every family loves to find me when they have something, and they also elected me as the deputy director of the village committee.

I like this job very much. I use the knowledge and skills I have learned in the teaching and training center to serve the masses enthusiastically and take the initiative to lead the villagers to do a good job in agricultural production together. With the support of government policies, our village committee has invested more than 12 million yuan to build livestock and poultry pens, breeding bases, cattle and sheep custody and other projects, helping more than 200 villagers get rid of poverty and become rich. We also actively promoted the renovation of human settlements such as toilet renovation and courtyard renovation, and invested 3.5 million yuan in village-level road construction projects alone, greatly improving the conditions in the village.

Now, earth-shaking changes have taken place here. There are asphalt roads between villages, villagers have lived in spacious and bright houses to live and enrich the people, children have received education in brand-new schools, and every household has drunk tap water, with strong cattle and sheep and a courtyard full of fresh fruits and vegetables. The villagers don’t have to worry about food and clothing. Whether they are farming or aquaculture, they enjoy subsidies, and education and medical care are also guaranteed. Look at the smiling faces of our villagers and you will know how happy they are!

My present job makes my family particularly proud. My mother was very happy to see me busy and happy when I told the villagers the policy of benefiting the people all day, helped them grow vegetables in greenhouses, and enthusiastically adjusted neighborhood disputes. She often boasts that she has a good son in front of her friends and thanks the training of the teaching and training center. Now I have the energy and face, and I will continue to struggle with the village Committee to make the villagers live a better life!

Xu Guixiang: Let’s ask Abriz Aze to tell us something about him.

On February 10th, Abliz Aze was answering a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Abulizi Aze: My name is Abulizi Aze. I come from Hotan County in Hotan area, and now I work in the township government of Layika.

In the past, my country’s general language level was poor, and I didn’t have any skills. When I did odd jobs, I got in touch with some bad people and did a lot of wrong things. Later, under the repeated persuasion of my brother, I signed up for vocational skills education and training. Through studying, I realized the mistakes I made before and mastered a lot of knowledge about policy and management. What makes me proud is that my national common language level and computer operation skills are the best in my class.

After graduation, because I speak the national common language well, have a certain level of policy, and know computer knowledge, I was hired as a civil affairs assistant of the township government after taking the examination organized by the village Committee and the teaching and training center, mainly responsible for the statistics of poor households in the village, the distribution of relief materials, and the implementation of the government’s policy of benefiting the people.

Now, there are more and more policies to benefit the people in our country. I am very proud of this work, and I live a full and happy life every day with a sense of accomplishment. Let me give you an example. For example, there is a family in Paqi village, our hometown. The husband and wife are older, and one son suffers from severe hypertension. There is no labor force at home, so life is very difficult. When I learned about their situation, I immediately reported it to the township civil affairs office. Now the village gives them a living allowance of 2000 yuan every year, and also asks me to visit their home often and give out daily necessities such as rice, flour and oil. Every time the old man knows that I’m going to visit, he will stand at the door and wait for me, holding my hand and excitedly saying thank you.

My own life is getting better and better, with new furniture at home, all kinds of household appliances and some savings. I’m also going to sign up for the self-study exam, improve my education and ability, do a better job as a civil assistant, set a good example for the children, and let them be useful to their hometown, society and country when they grow up.

Bi Haibo: Now please ask the reporter of Xinjiang Daily.

Xinjiang Daily (tianshan net) asked: It is understood that some trainees started their own businesses, started companies and became bosses after graduation. What do they think of the role of the teaching and training center?

Xu Guixiang: In this question, please ask Esmutullah Tohetti, a graduate student from Akto County Education and Training Center in Kezhou, and Maimaiti Morarouzi, a graduate student from Aksu City Education and Training Center in Aksu Prefecture, to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Esmutullah Tohti answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Esmutullah Tohti: Hello, my name is Esmutullah Tohti, and I am from Baren Township, Akto County. Now I am engaged in yak breeding, catering and construction engineering business.

In the past, influenced by religious extremism, I rejected all things related to the Han nationality, thinking that they were not "halal", doing nothing and wandering around the village all day. In addition, I can’t communicate normally in the national common language, and I don’t know any technology. The life at home is even a problem of food and clothing, and I rely on government relief. Later, under the persuasion of my family and friends, I took the initiative to sign up for the training of the teaching and training center.

In the teaching and training center, I learned the national common language, learned the law, and also learned the technology of cattle and sheep breeding, and learned how to choose excellent varieties and mix the right feed. After graduation, I plan to breed yaks. When the village committee knew about it, it was very supportive and took the initiative to help me coordinate a bank loan of 30,000 yuan. After a year, I earned more than 60,000 yuan. When I gave my wife so much money, she was too excited to speak. Later, with the encouragement and help of the village committee, I set up a breeding cooperative, and absorbed 20 households from the village to join the cooperative. Now it has grown to the scale of breeding 50 yaks, and I have also been rated as the "first person" in the village to increase income by innovative breeding. I have become a "good Balang" now.

With money in my pocket, my eyes are wider and wider, my mind is more and more lively, and I have found many new business opportunities. I found that with people’s life getting better and better and more people like to eat hot pot, I opened a hot pot restaurant in the town, focusing on yak meat from our cooperative, which was "sought after" by everyone. The business was booming, with a net profit of more than 80,000 yuan a year, and seven children of poor households were hired for employment. Later, I started construction projects, hired 106 employees from poor families, and contracted projects with more than 5 million yuan. All the employees who followed me got rid of poverty, and I became a famous "small boss" in the village.

I feel very lucky. Studying in the teaching and training center has freed me from extreme thoughts, learned skills, earned money and lived a dignified life. If I hadn’t trained in the teaching and training center, I wouldn’t have everything today. In the future, I want to be a bigger boss and lead everyone to live a better life. Thank you all.

Xu Guixiang: Let’s ask Maimaiti Morarouzi to introduce the relevant information.

On February 10th, Maimaiti Morarouzi answered a reporter’s question. Pomegranate Cloud/Xinjiang Daily reporter Wang Yushe

Maimaiti Morarouzi: Hello, everyone. My name is Maimaiti Morarouzi. I am 35 years old and I have opened two restaurants in Aksu.

In 2015, I opened a small restaurant, during which I met some religious extremists. They told me that the house built by the government was "Alamu" and the money was "Alamu". The daily necessities produced by mainland enterprises were "Alamu", and the Han people were all "pagans". Later, I listened to their words, and I became obsessed with the Han people. I refused to communicate with the Han people and refused to receive Han customers. When the Han people came to the store, I hated them and treated them badly. Not long after, the customers in the restaurant became less and less, the business became worse and worse, and finally the restaurant closed.

Later, under the persuasion of my family, I came to the teaching and training center to study. Because I have the experience of running a restaurant, I chose a cooking class. Under the hands-on instruction of the teacher, my cooking has made great progress and I have learned many new dishes. After graduation, I wanted to open a restaurant, but I couldn’t find a suitable venue, so I told the community about my idea of starting a business. They were very supportive and helped me find a 290-square-meter shop in Aksu city and reduced most of the rent. On December 20, 2019, my restaurant was officially opened, and there were many guests every day. Many customers said that my cooking was better than before. Now when I meet Han guests, I can also communicate with them in Mandarin and listen to their comments on the food, so that I can improve. At present, my restaurant has 55 employees, with a monthly turnover of about 500,000 yuan and an annual net income of more than 450,000 yuan, which I never dreamed of before.

We Uighurs have a proverb: "A person without gratitude is like a donkey without feelings." I will never forget that it was the education in the teaching and training center that saved me and taught me vocational skills, and it was the community that helped me realize my dream of starting a business. In the future, I will work harder and lead the staff to open the restaurant to Urumqi and the capital Beijing, so that more people can taste our delicious food in Xinjiang.

Xu Guixiang: If you have a chance, everyone will visit Maimaiti Moraz’s restaurant.

Bi Haibo: Now I’d like to invite AFP reporters to ask questions.

Agence France-Presse asked: As mentioned by a government spokesman just now, China denies that there are currently 1 million Uighurs detained in Xinjiang, but China has never officially announced how many students there were in the education and training center. I think maybe China can introduce how many people have been in these training centers, how long they have been there, who they are, what age group they are, male or female?

In addition, it has just been mentioned that all the students have graduated, so I would like to ask how many teaching and training centers there are and what are these teaching and training centers now? Are they all empty now? Do you have any plans to convert them into other institutions, or are you going to tear them down? Whether the international media can have a chance to see for themselves whether they are really empty now.

Xu Guixiang: Let me introduce you to this question. Media reporters have been paying close attention to the number of students in the teaching and training center. We have also introduced it many times, emphasizing that the number of students is dynamic, and there are gains and losses. Because each student has a different educational level, some learn faster, and some have a relatively weak cultural foundation, so he may need to spend a little longer time studying than others. Judging from the nature of the school and the characteristics of the students, the number of students is not easy to count. At the same time, according to the relevant laws and regulations of our country, such education and training centers are generally run by local governments, so from the level of autonomous regions, no department has specifically counted this data. As for the number of trainees, I don’t think it is the essence of the problem. In the past, when violent terrorist activities were frequent, many people were influenced by religious extreme thoughts and even participated in violent terrorist activities. As long as there are such infected people, no matter how many, they need to be trained, because even a person infected with religious extreme thoughts may create terrorist activities.

Through the training in the teaching and training center, the vast majority of students got rid of the shackles of religious extremism and terrorism and returned to normal social life. At present, there is no need to hold teaching and training centers as in the past. We are a developing country, and the buildings and yards of the education and training center are very good. It is a pity to tear them down, which will cause great waste. Therefore, we use them as social service institutions such as nursing homes and reuse them. If you are interested, we are also willing to accompany you to see the places where the students have studied.

Bi Haibo: Now please ask the reporter of Global Times to ask questions.

Global Times asked: Last year, there was an COVID-19 epidemic in Kashgar. Some overseas media said that many "detention camps" were located near Kashgar and were at risk of being infected by COVID-19 virus on a large scale. What do you think of this statement?

Xu Guixiang: Please answer this question by Mr. Yiliang Anayiti.

Yiliang Anayiti: The so-called "education and training centers are at risk of being infected by COVID-19 virus on a large scale" is totally a rumor with ulterior motives. We have said on many occasions that in October 2019, all the teaching and training students who participated in the "three studies and one go" have graduated, and with the help of the government, they have achieved stable employment, improved their quality of life and led a normal life. All the students in the teaching and training center have graduated. How can we say that the students are "at risk of infection"?

Bi Haibo: Because of the time, the last question is for the reporter of China News Service.

China News Agency asked: Xinjiang has always claimed that all the graduates of teaching and training have completed their courses in October 2019. However, some western think tanks concluded by studying satellite images that Xinjiang "built larger buildings to detain more people". Excuse me, do you have any comments?

Xu Guixiang: Let me introduce the relevant information about this question. Recently, I also noticed that the Australian Institute of Strategic Policy released a report called "Recording the Detention System in Xinjiang", saying that Xinjiang "has built larger buildings to detain more people". This kind of "inference" based on the so-called "satellite image" is completely speculative and nonsense.

In its report, the Australian Institute of Strategic Policy absurdly regards all buildings with external walls in Xinjiang as "detention centers", in fact, these so-called "detention centers" are civil institutions. The "detention center" in Turpan mentioned in the "Report" is actually the office building of the local administrative organ; The so-called "detention centers" in Kashgar are actually local nursing homes, logistics parks and schools. These are marked in Google and Baidu maps. I have pictures here. Please take a look at them together through the TV screen (showing relevant pictures on the spot).

In fact, some so-called "independent think tanks" such as the Australian Institute of Strategic Policy are not academic research institutions at all. They have long received financial support from the U.S. government and arms dealers. For the benefit of their financial owners, they are keen to concoct and speculate on various anti-China issues, spread rumors everywhere, and vilify and demonize China. They have become anti-China tools manipulated by the U.S. government and anti-China "Depth Charge" under the cloak of "academic". Especially on Xinjiang-related issues, the organization has repeatedly thrown out fallacies with no factual basis and full of fantasy assumptions, which has long been notorious. Not long ago, the Australian Citizens’ Party publication "Australian Warning Service" also issued a document pointing out that the "report" of the institute is extremely absurd and has no meaning except to create sensational false news.

Here I reiterate that Xinjiang is open, and there is no need to use "satellite images" to understand Xinjiang. We welcome all foreigners who hold an objective and fair position to visit Xinjiang and get to know the real Xinjiang.

Next, please watch a video.

Xu Guixiang: Today, we held this news conference around the vocational skills education and training in Xinjiang, and invited 15 graduates from the teaching and training center to tell their personal experiences. These are true stories, which are authentic, because happiness can’t be faked.

Once upon a time, they were bewitched, deceived and held by extremist forces, put on heavy spiritual shackles, and lived under the haze. Some of them had abnormal thoughts and behaviors, and their six parents denied them. Some ignore national laws and do whatever they want; Some participated in terrorism activities, embarked on the road of illegal crimes, and even became cannon fodder for terrorist forces and extremist forces. Extreme thoughts turned living people into "demons" who killed people without blinking an eye.

Now, they have broken through the cage of extremism, got rid of the threat of terrorism and returned to the sun, and their ideas, ways of thinking, production and lifestyle have all undergone radical changes. They know the law and abide by the law, have mastered a skill, and have achieved a job, a way to get rich, a promising life, and a dignified, decent and valuable life. From the "devil" disowned by six parents to the normal person. Here, please think about it together. Do we want to see them now or before?

The fundamental reason why they have undergone such profound changes is that Xinjiang has taken a series of preventive anti-terrorism measures, including holding teaching and training centers. Practice has proved that Xinjiang’s counter-terrorism and depolarization measures are effective, in line with the basic principles and spirit of the international community’s preventive counter-terrorism, such as the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and the United Nations Action Plan against Violent Extremism, in line with the spirit and requirements of the rule of law in China, in line with the reality of Xinjiang’s economic and social development, in line with the vital interests and universal aspirations of all ethnic groups, and are completely correct.

However, on the issue of education and training centers, some anti-China forces in the West have made a big fuss, linked a series of policies in Xinjiang to the education and training centers, frequently invented sensational illusions, fallacies and speculation, wantonly discredited and attacked Xinjiang, attempted to put Xinjiang in the dock, and even charged it with genocide, making Xinjiang a "cheap card" for them to contain and suppress China. But can their attempts succeed? In my opinion, it’s impossible!

In my opinion, some anti-China forces in the west have made five major mistakes on Xinjiang-related issues, which have determined their fate of failure and embarrassing fate.

One is the wrong position.Xinjiang’s anti-terrorism and depolarization uphold morality and people’s hearts, take the right path on earth and act justly, in exchange for stability and peace; However, some anti-China forces in the West cling to the Cold War mentality, pursue double standards, and pursue bullying, which stirs up the cold on Sunday. In this struggle, light will overcome darkness, justice will subdue evil, and truth will eliminate fallacies. This is an eternal law in human history.

The second is misjudging the facts.After an arduous struggle against terrorism and depolarization, Xinjiang has reversed the situation of frequent terrorist activities and serious threats to people’s lives and property in the past period. There have been no terrorist cases for more than four consecutive years, and unprecedented achievements have been made in economic and social development and improvement of people’s livelihood, showing a good situation of social stability and people living and working in peace and contentment. However, some anti-China forces in the West turned a blind eye, falsely claiming that Xinjiang "suppressed ethnic minorities", "persecuted Muslims", "forced sterilization" and "forced labor", and described Xinjiang as a "prison". The so-called "bill", "sanction" and "identification" were based on fictional fantasies and subjective assumptions, which could not stand scrutiny at all.

The third is the misuse of logic.Xinjiang’s struggle against terrorism and depolarization is based on facts and the law as the criterion. It is a useful exploration based on defending people’s interests and has irrefutable legitimacy, rationality and legitimacy. However, some anti-China forces in the West adhere to "double standards" and use such methods as "fabricating and tampering", "substituting flowers for trees", "taking things out of context", "vague accusations", "forced association" and "pulling and dragging", which obviously violate the normal cognition and judgment of human beings, are absurd, deceptive and inflammatory, and expose their dark and ugly psychology.

The fourth is the wrong source.The cadres and masses of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang have made a comprehensive, accurate and vivid expression of various policies and measures in Xinjiang and their achievements, which is the most powerful, authentic and credible display for Xinjiang. However, some anti-China forces in the west only like to listen to the nonsense of those "actors" with bad conduct and low morality, and are willing to collude with them and become the same birds with one feather. The fifth is to misjudge people’s hearts. Xinjiang’s struggle against terrorism and depolarization has won the praise of many people of insight in the international community. Since 2018, more than 1,200 people from 80 groups from more than 100 countries have visited Xinjiang, and they generally expressed their support and affirmation for Xinjiang’s practice. Especially, in view of Pompeo’s so-called "genocide" in Xinjiang, government officials from more than 10 countries have expressed their solemn support for Xinjiang, which is the people of the world. However, some anti-China forces in the West do the opposite. They don’t believe in the broad consensus of the international community, but stick to their own opinions, forcing many countries in the world to choose sides and completely underestimate the power of justice. "Getting more help from the Tao, but not from the Tao" has finally become more and more isolated.

Obviously, some anti-China forces in the West have stood on the opposite side of the 25 million people in Xinjiang, the 1.4 billion people in China, and the opposite side of human morality and conscience. Their attempt to "control China with Xinjiang" and "suppress China with fear" will surely go bankrupt. Thank you!

Bi Haibo: Thank you again for your frank exchanges with Minister Xu, Yiliang Anayiti and all the trainees. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Xinjiang will hold special press conferences in due course. This press conference is over.
