Turkey has broken the long silence by Muslim majority governments ever the way that China treats its Muslim weakened minority in Xinjiang it described China's behavior as an embarrassment for humanity. But from other governments that link to portray themselves as leading the Muslim world Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Indonesia silence. Chinese authorities have always kept a close eye on weakest and in the past Muslim leaders would complain about this then China grew into a superpower the criticism of dried up the spur for Turkey. Breaking ranks was the reported death in custody of well known week a poet and musician Abdur Rahman hate Beijing responded with a proof of life video. But by then Turkey had moved into wider criticism of the detention of hundreds of thousands of workers in reeducation camps, which the Chinese authorities say vocational education centers designed to counter terrorism. Turkey said inmate subjected to brainwashing. And torture. I've been speaking to our East Asia editor Michael Bristow selene Garrett in Istanbul. I began by asking selene why Turkey chosen this moment to speak up. The reason the government felt the need to speak out so strongly now could be directly linked to the upcoming local elections. The government obviously needs every nationalists won't it can laid hands upon these days and the situation is a very hot topic for them, Michael that's been international concern over the treatment of weakest for some time. But it doesn't seem at least in the past with made much difference to China's actions. Does it have remember going ten years ago to a room to the capital of Xinjiang when there was unrest there? So a lot of consent for a lot of time and a lots of criticism from outside of China. But know, China hasn't done much about that. Because it sees it simply as an internal matter, and it's very very aggressive. You could say in protecting each right to conduct its own affairs within its own borders. According to. How it sees fit? Selene Turkey called on the international community, and the UN secretary general to take effective steps to end what they called the human tragedy is this just about having a common Muslim background, or is there a sense of ethnic and cultural kinship as well with the weakest no, it's not only the Muslim background that has prompted such a reaction are believed to share an ethnic background with Turks. In fact in Turkey. They are called Yuga Turks and their language is Turkic having the same roots with a Turkish the areas they live in China are called a here in Turkey as east Turkistan in these nationalist circles, especially Turkistan, meaning the land of Turks, and that is why the nationalists rather than the Islamists to take up the cause of the mortar heart in Turkey. And there is a significant number of hubris currently living in Turkey having fled from China. Michael. Why is it the same? Oh, many states which generally identify as supporters of Muslims. Also in other countries been so silent decide about Chinese money. I think largely speaking it is obviously each individual country has its own relationship with China. But I think you can draw broad ideas from looking at all of them. For example, China is the biggest import oil from both Saudi Arabia and Iran, and obviously those economic ties would perhaps be damaged. If they criticize China and China in the past has shown itself to retaliate, if it is criticised, you had an argument a couple of years ago self for example of the deployment of missiles and China just literally stopped to he's going to South Korea. Chinese people in China boycotted a South Korean companies department stores accompanied self had to sell these hundred department stores at great loss. I think the real the reasons as well, political reasons, and perhaps countries we've. Is human rights record some cells. Don't want to suggest that China's doing something in China has also been a bulwark against the United States. It's almost like a reflex action in many countries to criticize the United States was Chinese perhaps seen as a friend in that fight. Mr. Erawan, speaking up on behalf of human rights might come. As a surprise to some took until two other people is he in danger of making rod for his own back with this. Well, we're talking about the most powerful men in Turkey, and in my personal point of view. There will be no such danger. But of course, opposition figures have picked this up, and they are questioning what they call. He poor Chrissy. They are saying that the government is accusing China of human rights abuses. Whereas it commits them here at home. But that kind of rhetoric is not very likely to hurt the government at the moment. Nearly all dissent in Turkey is silenced and stronger position to. Government policies and what they call as oppression is at the moment. Not possible. Michael want is China trying to do by interning, so many people seemingly on the basis of ethnicity all week is seen as a genuine threat either to Chinese communism or to the dominant Han Chinese ethnicity? I think the first thing you got to say, he's at the Chinese don't speak a lot about this themselves. They don't tell you why they're doing it. So we only have to guess he was only in October last year that finally they came out admitted they were willing to series of of camps in Xinjiang from what they have said, we can lean intention essentially these camps. They call them educational vocational camps. But they're also about changing the way that some Weigo's think essentially in that goes along with lots of other policies that they've had in place for a number of years trying to limit Islam inside certain parameters, essentially they're trying to make. We get more like Han. Chinese people Michael Bristow and selling gear.

"And since he has spoken Turkish lira has plummeted even further well. And of course, President Trump has been applying yet more pressure. He's just tweeted that he's authorizing a doubling of the tariffs on steel and aluminium with respect to Turkey that's just come in in the past hour or so what's impact with that Huw. Well, that will hurt because aluminum and steel apparently will be targeting deter cash construction sector and the recent economic boom in Turkey. The economic growth in Turkey is very much dependent on the construction sector. And if the construction sector is hurt, then Turkish economy will hurt and already because of the fluctuation of the Turkish lira because of the loss in its value, dramatic loss or ready there had been issues in importing of these materials. And now Turkey will face even harder. Harder face and already people in the marketplaces who were buying stuff because Turkey has been importing materials were already hurt. They will feel the squeeze more and more and the government will need to act somehow selene Garrett in Turkey. The election results in Zimbabwe represent a total negation of the will of the people. That is how a lawyer of the opposition MDC described the disputed vote. At the end of July, the MDC is submitting its case to the constitutional court today with a deadline under Imbaba and law of midnight, an MD Senator David Coltart the international community to put pressure on president Mnangagwa to abide by Zimbabwe's constitution, and he warned the president of the consequences if he called the opposition MDC has a long history of being committed to nonviolence of being committed to the rule. Law of committed to respecting the constitution, and if he listens to to us, then we can still stabilize this country and take it forward. But if he decides that he's going to go to learn that he's to rule by means of coercion. And then we, we have a very problematic future hit. Meanwhile, the opposition politician Tendai BT appeared in court in handcuffs on judges of inciting violence by rejecting president, Mnangagwa victory in the election, at least six people were killed two days off to the fighting clashes between the security forces and MDC alliance supporters who alleged leader. Nelson Chamisa had been roped victory. I'll stack correspondent. Sin guide Neo is in Harare for the latest on the MDC's legal challenge. The deadline is creeping ever closer, but there is still no sign off the MDC alliance lawyers. We understand that they might file after. Lunch, but it's not clear what time that will be, who does have been camped outside. And and the question is, what time will they file? Would they leave it to the last minute or will they will file on time? So this this me Mr. Mnangagwa is still going to go ahead as planned with the swearing in ceremony on Sunday. As he said, he would do. The invitations were sent out to various heads of states around the world, and we understand that fourteen had confirmed that they would attend, but the government has always maintained that that Sunday date was tentative by law. They cannot go ahead with an inauguration. If the MDC alliance files, it's papers today because the traditional court might dispense with the case as soon as possible, either today or tomorrow, but they have fourteen days to to give a judgement. So it's likely that if the NBC does go ahead and file that that inauguration will have to be postponed. Until this matter is resolved in court, what to make of ten diabetes detention and subsequent release on bail. Interesting that president Emmerson Mnangagwa wins out on Twitter yesterday and declared that he had intervened to ensure that tend not was released. MS raised a lot of questions here assured, some people that perhaps he wants to abide by the rule of law. But the other issue is that how much the Christian is how much influence does he have on the judiciary that he can intervene in matters of the court as David Todd, stay in via the MDC hugely influential, especially Tendai Biti. He's a former finance minister. He's influential in Washington. He has the era. So what happens now essentially depends on what happens in in government in the courts here today, but also with the opposition will contest at these results and what comes out of that briefly still many challenges facing the new president?.
