The anti-China sentiment of some Turkish was thoroughly expressed recently. On July 12, a 10,000-person anti-China assembly was gathered, in which most "Xinjiang Independence" banners around the world were put on show. These participants ignored the truth and falsely accused the Chinese government of carrying out a "massacre" in Xinjiang, highlighting their bigotry and isolated attitude in the current world.
The news has angered Chinese netizens. Based on messages on huanqiu.com, many Chinese netizens feel insulted by Turkish actions and suggest that China should change its attitude towards the Kurdistan Workers Party and support their appeal for independence, so as to make Turkey pay a heavy political price.
On the same day, many western media continued to mitigate their criticism against the Chinese government, facing consecutively disclosed facts and truth about the July 5 incident.
Turkey was once accused of committing genocide in Armenia by the West and its crackdown on Kurdistan Workers' Party has also stirred up numerous controversies. However, some Turkish ultra-nationalists has now forgot their own scars amid a "Pan-Turkism" dream and launched ruthless attacks on China, which has never offended Turkey.
