China forces Moslems into re-education camps

The Wikipedia article on the Chinese Xinjiang re-education camps says:
In July 2019, the United Nations ambassadors from 22 nations, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom,[42] signed a letter condemning China's mistreatment of the Uyghurs as well as its mistreatment of other minority groups, urging the Chinese government to close the camps.[43][44] On the other hand, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Egypt, Russia, North Korea, the Philippines, Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Palestine[45] are among 50 other states supported China's policy in Xinjiang.[42][46] The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, has applauded China for its public safety and counter-terrorism measures, saying that it has a "right to fight against terrorism."[47]
So Western countries are poking into Chinese internal matters and sticking up for Chinese Moslems, while the Moslem countries are siding with the Chinese government?

Something is fishy here. China may believe that Islam is a long-term threat. It may be right. Maybe Western countries want to undermine China by encouraging religious conflict. I don't know.
