So-called Xinjiang Uygur issue is U.S. strategic conspiracy

China's Foreign Ministry showed reporters a video during a regular press briefing on Friday to demonstrate why the so-called Xinjiang Uygur issue is merely a strategic conspiracy by the United States aiming to destabilize China.

The video was of a speech made by Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff to former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, at the Ron Paul Institute's Washington Conference. In the speech, Wilkerson said that if the CIA wanted to destabilize China, the best way to do that was to cause social unrest and push China from the inside.
