BEIJING (Reuters): China said on Friday that it resolutely opposed Malaysia’s decision to release 11 ethnic Uighur Muslims from detention and send them to Turkey, disregarding China’s request to hand them to Beijing.

China was in the process of verifying details with Malaysia and hoped that the South-East Asian nation would “attach great importance” to its concerns, China’s Foreign Ministry said in a faxed statement to Reuters.
