Overseas Chinese back Beijing's crackdown on terror attacks


08:32, July 02, 2013

BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Overseas Chinese have condemned the recent terror attacks in China's western autonomous region of Xinjiang and said they support the Beijing's efforts to restore order and stability.

Fengxiang Qiao, chairman of U.S.-China Friendship Association, said the recent violence and terror activities in Xinjiang were neither of ethnic nor religious nature but separatist moves that claimed the lives of innocent civilians and caused property damage.

Qiao, a professor at Texas Southern University, said overseas Chinese firmly support measures taken by the Chinese government to crack down on all forms of terrorist acts and to maintain social stability and secure personal safety and property.

Yuan Yi, deputy chair of the Russian Association for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China, told Xinhua in an interview the Chinese community in Russia was outraged by the recent atrocities by terrorists in Xinjiang, adding such brutal acts wreaked havoc on ethnic unity and social stability in the region.

Saying it was the common obligation of overseas Chinese to support China's national unity and make contributions to this purpose, Yuan said the Chinese community in Russia support counter-terror measures by the Chinese government.

Chen Wenjian, chairman of Chinese Enterprises Association in Algeria, said the association strongly condemned recent terror attacks in Xinjiang, which were brutal and of an abominable nature.

The association also firmly supports countermeasures by the Chinese government and its fight against the "three evil forces" of terrorism, separatism and extremism in Xinjiang, he said.

Meanwhile, a Chinese business group in Morocco also condemned the terror attacks in Xinjiang. It said such crimes aimed to incite ethnic hatred and sabotage national stability as part of a separatist agenda.

Ethnic unity was the cornerstone for the realization of the Chinese Dream and it must not be spoiled, the group said.

Han Jun, chairman of the Eastern-African Association for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China, said the recent terror attacks in Xinjiang exposed the anti-human and anti-society nature of terrorists and the perpetrators of these attacks were "the common enemy of all Chinese."

Wu Wuhua, head of a Chinese business association in France, said the Chinese communities overseas were indignant over the recent terror attacks in Xinjiang.

He hoped different ethnic groups in Xinjiang would join hands and make earnest efforts to safeguard social stability.

Luo Yuhong, chief editor of a Chinese business newspaper in Belgium, said the criminals behind the violent terror attacks in Xinjiang showed their indifference to human lives and a lack of basic human conscience.

They killed innocent civilians and stormed government institutions in a cruel manner, which was outrageous, he said.
