The security of all forms of both internal and external threats is the main focus of each country. Insurgency movement conducted by the TIM (Turkestan Islamic Movement) in Xinjiang became the focus of the Chinese government in maintaining the security stability of its country. Xinjiang is the most important connecting area to the countries of central Asia One of the special Administrative regions in China (Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region). However, the gap between ethnic groups in Xinjiang made an insurgency/terorrisme movement and made the special Autonomy area threatened by ethnic conflicts that indicated involvement with the extremism movement encouraged the Chinese government to create a strategy for tackling the problem. China's geostrategy in relation to such problems is carried out with counter-insurgency utilizing military and paramilitary forces such as the people's Liberation Army, Paramilitary: The People's Armed Police (PAP), Paramilitary: Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), Paramilitary: The People and The Police. This action was undertaken to prevent the widespread movements of the extremism of other cantilas. Another strategy is the Society centric war by rebuilding government institutions with the support of grassroots communities.
