China denies Turkish claim that Uighur poet Abdurehim Heyit died in Xinjiang

Last month China passed a law to'Sinicize Islam and make it'compatible with socialism

Aksoy said Turkey has shared with China its position on "all levels" and urged authorities to close the detention facilities and respect human rights.

But China on Sunday released a video showing a man who identified himself as Heyit and saying that he was alive and well.

Chinese Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that a brief video clip of Abdurehim Heyit issued by state media shows he is still alive.

Beijing faces growing global pressure over its so-called "de-radicalization" program in its far western province.

Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said in a statement, "It is no longer a secret that more than one million Uighur Turks incurring arbitrary arrests are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in internment camps and prisons".

Turks held small protests in cities nationwide to condemn China's human rights violations against Uighurs, Turkey's state-run news agency Anadolu reported on Sunday.

The musician says he is "in the process of being investigated for allegedly violating national laws".

Sixteen leading global human rights organizations have called for an worldwide investigation into China's mass incarceration of the Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang province.

"This is a big deal: [Turkey is] The first Muslim-majority country to criticize China so directly for its horrendous treatment of Uighur Muslims, and one of the most powerful Muslim-majority countries at that", Kenneth Roth, the head of Human Rights Watch, said on Twitter.

A United Nations panel of experts has said that almost one million Uighurs and other Turkic language-speaking minorities have reportedly been held in "re-education camps" in China's western Xinjiang region, where most of the country's more than 10 million Uighurs live.

The musician was rumoured to have died on the weekend which prompted Turkey to put out a statement condemning the mass detention of Uighurs in China's far-western region of Xinjiang.

"China has made solemn representations toward Turkey".

The Chinese embassy's response followed the Turkish Foreign Ministry's allegation of the death of a Uygur man in a vocational center.

Their language is close to Turkish and a significant number of Uighurs have fled to Turkey from China in recent years.

After months of denying their existence, Chinese authorities, under increasing outside pressure, acknowledged the camps, terming them vocational training centres.

The spokesperson informed that China has taken many counter-terrorism and de-extremism measures in the region as it has faced grave terror threats since the 1990s which severely threaten the safety of all people in Xinjiang.
