The Chinese Embassy in the Czech Republic on Friday strongly condemned the "World Uyghur Congress," a violent, terrorist and separatist organization that is seeking to split China's Xinjiang region, for organizing anti-China activities in the Czech Republic. It also criticized some organizations and politicians in the country for interfering in China's domestic affairs. 

The WUC reportedly convened its 7th General Assembly from Friday to Sunday in Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic. 

The WUC is an anti-China separatist organization that has spread disinformation about China's Xinjiang, spread religious extremism, and incited terrorist and separatist activities. Dolkun Isa, head of the WUC, is a terrorist identified by the Chinese government and is suspected of committing a series of violent, terrorist and criminal acts, the spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy to the Czech Republic said in a statement on Friday. 

Dolkun attempts to portray himself as a "victim," but this cannot cover up the fact he is a terrorist and he will be punished for his crimes, said the spokesperson. 

Xinjiang topics are not about ethnic groups, religion or human rights; they are about counter-terrorism, anti-separatism and de-radicalization. The "genocide" or "forced labor" allegations are blatant lies with malicious purposes. China's policies in its Xinjiang region and the development achievements of the region cannot be smeared, said the spokesperson. 

To create conditions for healthy and stable development of bilateral relations, China urges people in the Czech Republic to understand the anti-China essence of the WUC and to abide by international laws and codes of international relations by giving no support to the separatist activities of the WUC, said the spokesperson. 

China welcomes people from around the world including the Czech Republic to visit Xinjiang to know the truth. China is willing to work with the international community in dealing with the threat of terrorism and to defend world peace and stability, said the spokesperson.
