According to Chinese media, since January 9, the Chinese government has started to issue passports, open its borders, and promote overseas travel. According to the Uyghur News Agency, the policy has left most Uyghurs behind, except for a small number.


The 44 Uyghurs who died in the Urumqi fire suffered from a policy that seemed to have benefited others but not the Uyghur nation, as Uyghurs still lack the freedom to go abroad at the cost of their lives. The deceased were Uyghurs, and the ones who continue to die are Uyghurs. Other ethnic groups, such as the Chinese, Kazakh, Tungan, and Kyrgyz, can enjoy the lifting of travel restrictions. Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan have recently signed trade treaties with China that contain the clause of continued suppression of Uyghurs. These countries continue to destroy Uyghurs at the expense of protecting the interests of the ethnic Kazakh, Kyrgyz, and Uzbek traders and immigrants.
