On behalf of the Uyghur and other Turkic peoples of East Turkistan, the East Turkistan Government-in-Exile’s Parliament expresses its great thanks to the Council of Representatives of the Kingdom of Bahrain for calling on the international community to help protect the Uyghur Muslims of East Turkistan.
The East Turkistan Government-in-Exile’s Parliament calls on the Kingdom of Bahrain to raise the issue of Chinese persecution of Uyghur and other Turkic Muslims in East Turkistan with other member states of the Cooperation Council of the Arab States of the Gulf, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the United Nations. We call on them to enact resolutions, and other legislations that will recognize China’s crimes against humanity in East Turkistan as a genocide and recognize East Turkistan as an occupied country.
The East Turkistan Government-in-Exile’s Parliament expresses its desire to establish friendly relations between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the East Turkistan Government-in-Exile.
