In recent years, diplomats, scholars and journalists from many countries, including Russia, Pakistan, India, Thailand and Kazakhstan, have visited Xinjiang to have a first-hand experience of China's anti-terrorism efforts.
Many of them told the Global Times that Xinjiang's anti-terrorism and de-radicalization measures have helped international efforts in anti-terrorism, de-radicalization and human rights protection.
Yalini Saranya, a program officer at Bandaranaike Center for International Studies in Sri Lanka, who was among those who visited, told the Global Times that China's anti-terrorism measures, especially the vocational education and training centers, are very useful, and other countries can learn from them.
Saranya said he was amazed by the wide range of classes that the vocational education and training centers offer, such as make-up classes, electrician classes and tour guide classes, after she visited one center in Kashi, Southern Xinjiang in September.
By law, the anti-terrorism and de-radicalization measures adopted by China in Xinjiang are the concrete implementation of the UN Plan of Action to prevent violent extremism, and in full compliance with laws and the Constitution, which are in line with international practices, Shu said.
US officials and journalists just keep on criticizing China' policies on Xinjiang without verifying the facts, which shows that their true intention is not to help Xinjiang, He Zhipeng, a professor of international human rights and legal education at Jilin University, told the Global Times.
He said the decisions will have little impact on China. "Even US allies don't follow whatever the US tells them to do. Any deliberate or vicious attack on Xinjiang will backfire," He said.
