The match ended with a 1-1 draw. Photo: Xinhua Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Monday that Arsenals Turkish-German football player Mesut Ozil seems to have been deceived by fake news about Chinas Xinjiang and welcomed him to the region to see a real Xinjiang after the footballer sparked a backlash for referring to Xinjiang as “East Turkistan.”  Xinjiang is an inalienable part of China. In Chinese history, Xinjiang has never been called “East Turkistan”, let alone the so called “East Turkistan State.” Ozil must have been blinded by some fake news and untrue comments, Geng shuang, spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said at Mondays press conference. Ozil doesnt know that all Chinese including Uyghur peoples religious freedoms are being protected, and that Xinjiang has not seen a violent terrorist attack for three consecutive years, Geng said. “I can tell him, Xinjiang enjoys political stability, economic development, ethnic unity and social harmony. We welcome Ozil to travel around Xinjiang and have a look. As long as he has a conscience, knows right from wrong and upholds the principle of objectivity and justice, he will find a Xinjiang thats different from what he thought,” Geng noted. In his posts on Friday on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Ozil referred to Chinas Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region as “East Turkistan,” a separatist term advocated by the UN-listed terrorist organization the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), and made groundless accusations and false narratives about Chinas policies in Xinjiang. Chinas state-run China Central Television (CCTV) and online broadcaster PPTV stopped airing Arsenals game against Manchester City on Sunday, as Ozils comments hurt his Chinese fans but also hurt the feelings of the Chinese people. The Chinese Football Association (CFA) expressed strong indignation and disappointment over the Turkish-German players comments. The CFA said in a statement sent to the Global Times on Saturday that the “East Turkistan” that Ozil referred to on his social media accounts is not an ethnic or religious matter, but a matter of separatism, terrorism and extremism, which is being spurned by peace-lovers all over the world.Global Timesload_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Arsenal game pulled over Ozil’s Xinjiang postEnglish Premier League London-based football club Arsenals office in China confirmed that the state broadcaster has decided not …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1173690;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
