China on Monday said it opposes the United States “finger pointing” at Pakistan and linking it with terrorism , insisting that the responsibility of cracking down on terror outfits cannot be placed on a particular country. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a media briefing that Pakistan on it part was fulfilling its responsibility cracking-down on terrorists.
He was responding to a question on a White House official’s remarks that China could play helpful role in convincing Pakistan that it was in its national interest to crackdown on terror safe havens. “Terrorism is a public enemy of mankind and its fight against terrorism requires the concerted efforts of the international community,” he said.
“China has always opposed the link between terrorism and specific countries, nor is it in favour of pushing the anti-terrorism responsibility to a certain country. We have said many times that Pakistan has made an important contribution to the fight against terrorism and made enormous sacrifices.”
