BEIJING, Jan 8 (APP):: China Monday said Pakistan had made important sacrifices and contributions to the global anti-terrorism cause and finger pointing at each other was not conducive to the global counter-terrorism efforts.
“As we stressed many times that Pakistan has made important sacrifices and contributions to the global anti-terrorism cause and the countries should strengthen anti-terrorism cooperation on the basis of mutual respect instead of finger pointing at each other. This is not conducive to the global counterterrorism efforts,” Spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Lu Kang said during his regular press briefing here.
Acknowledging, once again, Pakistan’s sacrifices and contributions to the global anti-terrorism cause, he said the Chinese side opposed linking of terrorism with any certain country and disagreed to place the responsibility of counter-terrorism on a certain country.
“First and the foremost I would like to say that terrorism is common enemy of the world and cracking down on the terrorism needs joint efforts from the international community,” he added.
On China’s continuous support to Pakistan in its anti-terrorism campaign especially during the recent weeks, he commented that actually, China was defending the countries that had been making anti-terrorism efforts in a just and fair way.
The spokesperson said China also welcomed all the global joint efforts in terms of counter-terrorism on the basis of mutual trust and mutual respect.
