Statistical reports of the People's Republic of China indicate that the number of Uzbeks residing in the country totals 14,502. The majority of them reside on the territory of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and are particularly concentrated in the cities of Inin, Tachen and Urumqi. The majority of Uzbeks in China use Uyghur written language.

The ancestors of these Uzbeks moved from Central Asia to China long time ago. During the epoch of the Yuan Dynasty (1271 to 1368), Uzbek merchants traveled along the Silk Road from Xinjiang and settled in central regions of China. A part of them stayed in the cities of Xinjiang. In the mid-18th century, during the reign of Qing Dynasty, Xinjiang became a part of China. From this time one, the number of migrants from Central Asia to China increased.

The migration of Uzbeks to China continued until the early 20th century. Apart from merchants, the migrants included craftsmen, intelligentsia, and farmers. Since Uzbeks are concentrated in the cities, they have great opportunities to get good education. For this reason, many Uzbeks are intelligent people, many of them working in public education. Uzbeks have enclosed a great contribution in the development of culture and education of Xinjiang.

I have read a lot of history books about central Asia and the "Uzbek" the name start to appear only since 16th century but Uighurs,kokturks and Kyrgiz are mentioned from 2000 years ago from now. The cities Semerkand, Buhara are also mentioned though.
But in the article above "Uzbeks from 12th 13th century" sounds funny. If you do not believe just klick" history of Uzbeks" and check it from the internet.

The Uzbeks capture Samarkand under Muhammad Shaybani Khan (1451-1510), thus taking over Transoxiana from the Timurids
This means Uzbeks are the Uighurs who are living in the western Qarakhaned Empire.
They have to accept that they are originally Uighurs, at least before 14th century.

“乌孜别克”在《元史》中作“月即别”、“ 月祖伯”等,均为“Uzbek”的汉语音译。这一名称原是十四世纪上 半叶金帐汗国(《元史》作“钦察”原属蒙古帝国的组成部分)一位可汗 的名字。

维吾尔族的族源可以上溯到公元前3世纪游牧生息于贝加尔湖以南、巴尔喀什湖与额尔齐斯河之间广阔地区的丁零 。也即“狄历”“敕勒”。高车为“古赤狄之 余种也,初号为狄历,北方以为敕勒,诸夏以为高车、丁零”。公元4世纪时的《魏书·高车 传》中出现的“袁纥”,这是“Uyνur”(维吾尔)这 个族称的首次汉译。

This is evidenced tatement: "I am not being nationalist but according to non Uighur historions it is claimed that Uighurs are the source of formation of Finnish( at least eastern part), Hungarians, obviously Turkik nations including Uzbeks, Estonions......"

The article on the top re Uzbeks, certainly the Chinese created 'history' of UZBEKS for the purpose of 'divide and rule', and a way of stirring Uyghur sentiment towards Uzbeks by giving such a false history information...although it makes 'UZBEKS' 'proud', but it is not a real thing though.....
