China said the international community needs to recognise Pakistan’s “great sacrifices” and that it was opposed to “linking terrorism to any one country or religion”.
“China and Pakistan are ‘all-weather’ friends. India and Pakistan are both victims of terrorism. In combating terrorism Pakistan has made great sacrifices. This needs to be recognised by the international community,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Monday at a press briefing when asked to respond to the PM’s comment at the weekend’s BRICS Summit.
“As far as terrorism is considered, our position is consistent. It is an international phenomina. Whatever country and organization is involved, it should be addressed by international community. India and Pakistan should resolve their issues bilaterally” he stated.
