BEIJING: China has urged the international community to acknowledge the great efforts and sacrifices by the Pakistani government and people in the fight against terrorism.
Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson Lu Kang said this during a regular briefing in Beijing.
He was responding to a question regarding Pakistan’s placement on a grey list by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a global anti-terror financing watchdog, during its recent meeting in Paris
The spokesperson said Pakistan’s efforts in combating terrorism, under its very difficult conditions, have been recognized not only by China but also many other countries.
He stressed that all parties will treat Pakistan’s counter-terrorism efforts objectively and impartially instead of relying on criticism and pressure.
