According to Chinese government officials in the past, some followers of Islam put forth threats between the minority group of Muslim Uighurs and the majority populous of Xinjiang, the Han Chinese.

Monday's Global Times editorial comes after a United Nations anti-discrimination committee raised concerns Friday over China's treatment of Uighurs, citing reports of mass detentions that is said "resembles a massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy".

Gay McDougall shared that the area could be coined as a "no rights zone", something she said over a two-day summit in which the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination discussed nothing but China's record with human rights and its current treatment of the "autonomous" region of Xinjiang.

Global Times said the intense regulations in the region were merely "a phase that Xinjiang has to go through in rebuilding peace and prosperity".

Now the United Nations says it's received reports that the region is functioning as an internment camp.

"Through the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China, the national strength of the country and the contribution of local officials, Xinjiang has been salvaged from the verge of massive turmoil", the newspaper said.

Xinjiang has "no room for destructive Western public opinions", and all steps must be taken to ensure its stability, it said. Security efforts have dramatically increased in the past couple years, and the region where most of China's Uighurs live has become one of the most heavily policed places in the world. Over recent months, monitoring groups and eyewitnesses say Uighurs have been summoned from overseas and across China and sent into detention and indoctrination centres.

The Chinese delegation leader also highlighted economic progress and rising living standards among other things. And it says another 2 million Uighurs have reportedly been forced to undergo indoctrination in "so-called re-education camps".

She did not specify a source for that information in her remarks at the hearing.

The UN committee is expected to continue its discussion on Monday, when it is expected that China will respond to the questions raised in Friday's session.

Earlier, Yu Jianhua, China's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, said it was working towards equality and solidarity among all ethnic groups.
