(TibetanReview.net, Oct19, 2016) – China has jumped to the defence of its all-weather friend Pakistan on Oct 18, responding to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi remark during the BRICS summit in Goa that the country was a “mothership of terrorism”.

Asked about Modi’s comments, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying has told a daily news briefing in Beijing, “We … oppose the linking of terrorism to any specific country, ethnicity or religion. This is China’s consistent position.”

Hua has further added, “Everyone knows that India and Pakistan are victims of terrorism. Pakistan has made huge efforts and great sacrifices in fighting terrorism. I think the international community should respect this.”

Told that Modi had criticized Pakistan’s continued support for anti-India terrorist groups, giving them arms, financial support and helping them to cross the border to carry out attacks in India, and asked whether it was China’s view that international community should not take a stand on Islamabad’s support to terrorists, Hua has said: “As per the problem between India and Pakistan, both the countries are close neighbours of China. We truly hope that they can resolve these differences in a peaceful way through dialogue and consultation, so that India and Pakistan relations can develop. This serves the interest of the two countries and the region,”
