Turkey on Saturday condemned China's treatment of its Muslim ethnic Uighur people as "a great embarrassment for humanity", adding to rights groups' recent criticism over mass detentions of the Turkic-speaking minority.
Turkish Foreign Ministry says it "expects Chinese authorities to consider Turkish people's reaction over serious human rights violations."
"The re-emergence of concentration camps in the 21st century and China's systematic assimilation policy toward Uighur Turks are great embarrassment for humanity", Aksoy said.
"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", Aksoy said.
The comments from Turkey came after Uighur poet and musician Abdurehim Heyit died in custody in China.
"Uighurs, who are not detained in the camps, are also under great pressure".
Turkey called on the worldwide community and U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "to take effective steps to end the human tragedy in the Xinjiang region".
The Uighurs are a Muslim minority who speak Turkic, a language similar to Turkish.
Since the 1990s, Uyghur groups have tried to regain independence for East Turkestan through force which China has vehemently quashed.
China stepped up its restrictions on the region in the past two years, banning men from growing beards and women from wearing veils and introducing what many experts see as the world's most extensive electronic surveillance program, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Almost one million Uighurs and other Turkic language-speaking minorities in China have reportedly been held in re-education camps, according to a United Nations panel of experts.
In its last report released on last September, Human Rights Watch blamed the Chinese government for a "systematic campaign of human rights violations" against Uyghur Muslims in northwestern Xinjiang, an autonomous region in the country. Mr Heyit was thought to be serving an eight-year sentence in the Xinjiang region, where up to one million Uighur Muslims are being detained.
Abdurrehim Heyit, an Uighur poet and a musician renowned with his songs narrating the Uighur history and culture was born in Kashgar city of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, in 1964. He was in the prison when he was died.
