A total of 354 representatives for entrepreneurs and staff belonging to ethnic minority groups in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have published an open letter to denounce terrorism.

"The terrorists' criminal acts have wronged us and made us unable to operate at ease," said the letter, titled "Lofty obligations and responsibilities along the glorious Silk Road -- a letter to fellow Uygurs."

"How can we let terrorists push the Uygur nationality with glorious civilization into darkness?" said the letter, which was released at a press conference in Urumqi.

"Whenever terror happens, our heart hurts. Our enterprises have been affected by those terrorist attacks," it said.

The letter, which was posted on Monday, came after a series of deadly terrorist attacks in Xinjiang's capital city Urumqi, as well as in Kunming City in southwest China and Beijing.

"I believe evil can never prevail over good," said Shewket Ablet, chairman of Xinjiang Xueke Leather Co. Ltd., who also runs a Uygur restaurant that was badly affected by the terrorist attacks.

"As long as we unite as one and fight against the terrorists decisively, our enterprises are bound to grow stronger," he said.
