Chinese government is promising to join forces with other countries in cracking down on terrorist organizations.

The comments come following violent incidents in Xinjiang recently.

One organization the Chinese authorities are planning on targeting is the East Turkestan movement.

The group is a separatist terrorist group in Xinjiang.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.

"The East Turkestan terrorist forces and international terrorist organizations have been uniting, not only threatening China's national security but also the peace and stability of relevant countries and regions. The international community should stay on high alert. China will continue to strengthen cooperation with relevant countries to jointly attack terrorist organizations including the East Turkestan terrorist forces."

A violent attack against a local government compound and police officers in Shanshan County near the city of Turpan in Xinjiang left two dozen people dead.

The Chinese government says it will take "necessary measures" to punish those involved under the law.

The government also says it's fully confident in ensuring peace and stability in Xinjiang.
