In China’s Xinjiang province, tens of thousands of members of ethnic minorities have been disappearing in camps, mainly the Uighurs, Kazachs, and Kyrgyz. This West Chinese province has a significant place in the plans for the construction of the New Silk Road, a massive economic project that the current Chinese President Xi Jinping has been striving for since he came into office in 2013.

It’s the country’s response to the imbalanced economic situation in the world, trying to enhance the global political and economic influence of the People’s Republic of China. The instability and separatism in the border regions are considered by the Chinese Communist Party as a threat to the ambitious plans for reinforcing their own position in the world.
