Kourosh Ziabara, Asia Times: Why Iran won’t cross China on the Uighurs 

Iran's deafening silence on China's Uighur Muslim repression speaks volumes about Tehran's reliance on Beijing's money 

Iran has long championed the cause of repressed Muslims worldwide, an often vocal stance that has underpinned the Islamic Republic’s self-proclaimed leadership role in the Muslim world. 

But Iran has willfully ignored the ordeal of more than 1.5 million Uighur Muslims now confined by China in controversial “vocational training” camps, a silence that has spoken volumes about Beijing’s growing influence over Tehran. 

WNU Editor: China buys Iran's oil. Like most things in the world. Its all about the money.
