Turkey officially recognizes the "East Turkestan Islamic Movement" as a terrorist organization.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi has praised Turkey for listing the "East Turkestan Islamic Movement" as a terrorism organization during the Second Meeting of China-Turkey Foreign Ministers' Consultation Mechanism in Beijing on Thursday.

The terrorist and separatist group was founded in 1989 by Uygur militants in western China, aiming at the establishment of "an independent caliphate" in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China and to name it "East Turkistan".

The group has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in China.

The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu added "We'll never allow any activities against China on our territory or the region we are in. We'll eliminate any media reports targeting against China."
