I missed it when #China’s Embassy in #Afghanistan tweeted this two months ago, but it’s very interesting to see the #CCP fretting about #PanTurkism & #PanIslamism. The former would be a bulwark against Chinese expansionism into #CentralAsia, while the latter would be a disaster…
… for all of humanity. #China’s lucky in the sense that #Turkey’s #Erdogan isn’t a true pan-Turkist, despite his attempts to style himself as some kind of neo-Ottomanist. His alignment with #Iran’s oppressive regime, which is funded by Chinese oil purchases…
… is completely antithetical to the ideaology of #PanTurkism, as #Tehran treats the Turkic #Azeris/#Azerbaijan’is living in #Iran terribly, taking their taxes & neglecting areas where they’re a majority. #Erdogan’s ideology isn’t pure or consistent. It’s merely self-serving.
