Consul General of China denies reports on 'political education camps for Uyghurs' in China's Xinjiang.

Consul General of China in Almaty Zhang Wei denied the reports on alleged "political education camps" for Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.

Wei stressed the importance of ensuring security for any country during a meeting with reporters in Almaty on February 7.

"We don't have such a concept. Ask CNN since it's them who reported about it. But I think security is in the first place for any country. Kazakhstan is implementing state policy to preserve stability and security in the country, the same is in China, the US and many other countries of the world. It's better to cite Chinese media, how they wrote about it, not the western," Sputnik Kazakhstan reported Zhang Wei as saying.

Effectiveness, honesty and objectivity are the main criteria of quality for every media worker, he said.

Earlier, CNN reported about the "detention of thousands of Uyghur Muslims at political education camps in Xinjiang's Kashgar."

According to CNN, "detainees are required to praise the ruling Communist Party, sing revolutionary songs, learn to speak Mandarin, study the thought of Chinese leader Xi Jinping, and confess perceived transgressions such as praying at a mosque or traveling abroad, according to activists."
