China pats Pak for ‘fighting’ terrorism

| | Beijing

Seeking to placate its all-weather ally, China said on Friday that Pakistan has done its “best” to combat terrorism and “some countries” must give it full credit for that, days after Beijing backed the BRICS’s declaration which named Pakistan-based terror groups like LeT and JeM for the first time.

“Pakistan is a good brother and iron friend of China. No one knows Pakistan and understands Pakistan better than China,” Foreign Minister Wang Yi said while addressing a joint Press conference with Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif here.

Asif is visiting China after China backed a tough resolution on terrorism at the just concluded BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) summit in Xiamen.

The resolution expressed concern over violence caused by terrorist groups, including the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) and Haqqani network.
