China pledges support for Pakistan's war against terrorism

Narendra Modi the India n prime minister joined President Xi in condemning the terrorist groups at an economic summit in Xiamen last week

The House subcommittee convened to debate on "Maintaining US influence in South Asia" and Sherman, who regularly has a hard line approach towards Pakistan said that the Afghan government needs to recognise the 2,430km line between Pakistan and Afghanistan in order to achieve desired negotiations from Pakistan.

"The government and people of Pakistan made huge efforts and sacrifice in the fight against terrorism and such efforts and sacrifice are there for everyone to see".

China's top diplomat has defended Pakistan's anti-terrorism measures following assertions by US President Donald Trump that Islamabad fosters militants attacking American and Afghan military forces.

Past attempts to highlight their activities and pressure Pakistan at regional and worldwide fora have failed, mainly because of China's active reluctance to do so. "The government and people of Pakistan made huge efforts and sacrifice in the fight against terrorism and such efforts and sacrifice are there for everyone to see", he said adding, "the worldwide community should recognise that".

Beijing had invited Asif for an official visit just after the conclusion of BRICS summit in Xiamen where the five-member bloc named Pakistan-based anti-India terror groups Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed in its joint declaration.

Protests in South Korea as nations wrestle with North missile threat
Moon temporarily halted the installation after taking office to conduct more environmental reviews and ease residents' concerns. Beijing says the system's powerful radars will be able to monitor flights and missile launches deep inside north-eastern China.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Minister reaffirmed Beijing's continuous and firm support for Pakistan in war against terrorism, saying that both the countries stand together in the changing regional and global scenario.

China has been sore about its inability to cut off the links between Pakistan-based Taliban and ETIM terrorism in Xinjiang.

"We would like to see, and appreciate, constructive economic investment in Afghanistan's stability and institutional stability", she said, recounting India's commitment to spend $3 billion in Afghanistan, and highlighted work done, including the construction of its new parliament building.

The naming of the JeM in the declaration also sparked speculation whether China would continue to resist efforts by India to bring about a United Nations ban on its leader Masood Azhar. Asif said talks and peace were the only solution to this lingering problem.

The foreign minister stated that by the end of the year there will be the first meeting between the foreign ministers of China, Afghanistan and Pakistan. "We reaffirm that those responsible for committing, organising, or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable", it added.
