Has Iran ceded Kish Island to China?

Recommended Posts

"A landmark 25-year deal on economic and political cooperation between Iran and China has caused controversy and fierce debate in the Islamic Republic. 

"Following reports that the Iranian cabinet had given its approval to a draft of the plan last month, critics argued Tehran had agreed to a "colonial" deal that would allow China to plunder the country's natural resources and oil reserves."

and then

I can't imagine Iran doing anything like this but then again, they are pretty much teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and economic collapse.  China has Muslims by the tens of thousands in concentration camps in Iran and the mullahs are cozying up to them?  That isn't politics.  That is just evil.

From the same sects and groups Iran was fighting on the home front.

Whole bunch of theories and news about China's policies for Uighur are very interesting but there are many reasons why Xinjiang is of such great importance to many short and long term plans in China, for their growth and future survival - so much that any instability there could render whole China vulnerable, whole China to risk large decline in near future. From trade connections, travel, infrastructure project... Xinjiang is in the middle of each.

There was always separatist spirit in Xinjiang. There were also troubles. Different standards for Hui and Uighur Muslims after China started to tolerate Islam, officially only in 1970's. It had neglected them before that and had rules to suppress people's customs and faith. And things started changing, reforms in China happened but risk of separatism and foreign influence is maybe stronger today than it ever was. So it's very complicated issue which is older than modern biased journalism, if some did not know.

Did China break some human rights? Sure it did. Were some people harmed, beaten up or even killed? I am sure that happened too. Every Muslim in China was harmed to large extent as this situation kinda paints target mark on every Muslim. But that too is old issue not just in China but everywhere these days. That doesn't make China morally right or superior but pointing a finger when that finger has blood on it... Is very unkind... Most vocal supporters and carers for Uighur Muslims today were also the most vocal advocates for destruction of Muslims elsewhere. It's so rude.

Now, with all that said - can we go so far to say that Iran is helping China in it's torture of Muslim minority? :D We should discuss Tiananmen sometimes, that would shed so much light on whole propaganda war between China and it's opponents.
