As Turkey has its own interest in Syria and also in need of support from a major economy. There has been news of Turkey cosign up with China to work out a deal to support its military operations in Syria against the Kurds. China, in return, is demanding Turkey's cooperation on its military operation against Muslims in Xinjiang.
