Adjust font size:

The Turkish government has vowed it firmly adheres to the one-China policy and disallows anyone to engage in sabotaging China's sovereignty and territorial integrity on the Turkish territory.

Turkish State Minister Zafer Caglayan conveyed the message from Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Monday.

Caglayan is visiting China as special envoy of Turkish Prime Minister.

Turkey understood the measures that the Chinese government took to calm the riot on July 5 in Urumqi, said Caglayan.

The riot in the capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region left 197 people dead and more than 1,600 others injured.

Wen said the Chinese government has capability of maintaining stability and normal social order and will take more effective measures to support economic development and social progress in Xinjiang.

Both China and Turkey, however, are confronted with extremism, separatism and terrorism, and China would like to join hands with Turkey to fight the "three forces," Wen said.

"China values its relationship with Turkey from a strategic height, cherishes friendship between the two peoples, and is willing to make joint efforts with Turkey to fight resolutely the'three forces'," said Wen.
