World Uyghur Congress Applauds European Parliament´s Urgency Resolution on Safeguarding Kashgar

March 11, 2011 by admin


The World Uyghur Congress (WUC) on behalf of the Uyghur community around the world applauds the Urgency Resolution on Safeguarding Kashgar adopted today in the European Parliament. With this resolution, the European Parliament is publicly expressing that the Old City of Kashgar must be preserved and destruction halted. The ancient city of Kashgar, located in the very heart of the Silk Road, is not only a crucial cultural site for Uyghur identity, but part of world civilization with its unique reflections of accumulated history, tolerance and cultural diversity. The urgency resolution is both a clear and unequivocal signal to the Chinese authorities to uphold its responsibilities to preserve world heritage sites like Kashgar and the Uyghur culture, and also to stop the ongoing human rights violations against the Uyghur population in East Turkestan.
