On August 30, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region held a press conference on Xinjiang-related issues in Beijing.

Regarding the online topic "The Afghan film "The Kite Chaser" made by the United States was filmed in Xinjiang", Xu Guixiang, a spokesperson for the People's Government of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, confirmed it.

He said that the background of the movie "The Kite Chaser" produced by Paramount Corporation of the United States took place in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

After the "911" incident, the United States invaded Afghanistan in the name of anti-terrorism, leaving Afghanistan in a state of war and turmoil, making it difficult to find a place of peace and tranquility. Therefore, the crew chose to shoot in Kashta County, Xinjiang, China.

  At the press conference, Xu Guixiang also cited many movie clips that were shot in the ancient city of Kashgar in Xinjiang and Stone Town in Taxkorgan County.

He said that the irony is that the United States launched the war in Afghanistan under the banner of anti-terrorism, not for Afghanistan, nor for the benefit of the Afghan people, but for ulterior motives.

Xu Guixiang said that the United States has brought wars, social turmoil, and people’s livelihood to Afghanistan, and even the filming of a movie has not been able to find a suitable filming location.

While China’s Xinjiang is stable and peaceful, the United States turns a blind eye to it, and instead slanders that Xinjiang has violated human rights, "what a hypocrisy."
