Communist China has drastically decreased the delivery of the anti-Wuhan virus vaccine to Turkey to force it to ratify the extradition treaty.




Despite the international calls by politicians, including the one by the Director of World Health Organisation, upon countries to share the knowledge about the Wuhan virus and make the vaccines widely available, the Communist Beijing regime once again broke the rules violating all the moral principles and legal obligation.

On Wednesday, Health Minister Mr. Fahrettin Koca informed that Beijing delivered 3 million doses out of 10 million ordered by Turkey raising the suspicion that Beijing is threatening access to the vaccine in order to ensure the Turkish Parliament votes for the extradition treaty important for Communist regime.

The day before, Uyghur activists have expressed their concern that Beijing’s ratification of an extradition treaty with Turkey is putting in jeopardy those who have sought a sanctuary there after fleeing repressive Chinese Communist Party policies in Xinjiang province. The treaty obliges the state to extradite anyone suspected by Beijing of terrorism, extremism, and separatism. Under these unfounded charges Chinese Communist Party imprisoned at least million of innocent Uyghurs in the concentration camps. They are being submitted to tortures, sterilisation and slave labour.



China's withdrawal of the vaccine a political pressure

Thus ratification of the treaty would mean that Turkey is aiding the Chinese Communist Party to perpetrate the genocide of Uyghur nation.

Extradition treaty requires Turkey to pass to China anyone suspected by
Beijing regime of terrorism, extremism, and separatism, charges which
are designed by the Chinese Communist Party to perpetrate genocide against Uyghurs.


Turkey is considered to be a second home for Uyghurs, who have taken refuge in this country that has cultural and linguistic ties with the Uyghur people, said WUC president Mr. Dolkun Isa. Given the genocide that is unfolding in East Turkistan, the Turkish government has a responsibility to protect all Uyghurs living in Turkey.

But now with the withdrawal of the vaccine Beijing creates life-threatening situation for Turkey imposing pressure in the most despicable way.

Beijing appears to be leveraging not only potential Chinese investment in Turkey but also the supply of Sinovac vaccines to influence Turkish foreign policy, remarekd a former Turkish opposition lawmaker Mr. Aykan Erdemir, an Erdogan critic at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. There is overwhelming support for the Uighurs among the Turkish public, but Erdogan can still use his parliamentary majority to ensure the ratification of the Turkey-China extradition treaty as a favor to Beijing.



Turkey did not criticise openly China's genocidal policies against Uyghurs

Publicly, Turkish high officials deny that they would extradite Uyghurs to Communist China however if there is no intent to cooperate why would a country sign such a pact?

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu did not say when Turkey's parliament might debate the agreement. But he said its approval would not mean Turkey will release Uyghurs to China. There have been requests for returns from China related to Uyghurs in Turkey, and you know Turkey hasn't taken steps like this," Mr Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara, he stated.

Given the genocide that is unfolding in East Turkistan,
the Turkish government has a responsibility to protect all Uyghurs living in Turkey.


But news reports have accused Turkey of covertly returning Uyghurs to China via third countries.

In Ankara, ethnic Uyghurs rallied for the ninth day running on Wednesday to express their fears about the extradition treaty.

God willing, we hope our state will not approve such a thing, stated Mr. Omer Farah, an Uyghur with Turkish citizenship who said his children are detained in China. But if it does, we are really worried. Because for China, all 50,000 Uighurs who live here are criminals.

At the United Nations, Turkey has not joined statements by democracies deploring the Uyghur genocide by Communist China.
