Chinese PM Admire Pakistan efforts in war against Terrorism

Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao has advised the international community to admire Pakistan’s efforts as it had made invaluable sacrifices in the war against terror.

Addressing to the joint session to the Parliament he said “We should not connect terrorism to any precise religion or nation, and avoid chasing double standard while dealing with the issue. We should rather focus on the root causes of terrorism and ways to eradicate them.

Services chiefs, chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, provincial governors and chief ministers, ambassadors of the foreign missions in Pakistan and other senior Chinese and Pakistani officials also presented the historic address.

Premier Jiabao pledged, “China will remain committed in its support to Pakistan and will expect the same from the international community. The people of Pakistan will surely defeat their difficulties,” he added.

Chinese Premier also promise ed to boost strategic assistance with Pakistan as he covered up a three-day visit to Islamabad that concluded by signing deals worth around $35 billion between the two countries.

“It is our collective aim to stabilize strategic ties between our two countries. China and Pakistan are the all-weather strategic partners and share the sorrows and joys of each other as close brothers,” Jiabao said, amidst heavy thumping of desks during his address.

“Let’s stand together, with a new self-assurance, and begin a new era of progress and prosperity, by jointly facing all challenges,” he said, adding that both the countries had reached the present stage after passing through difficult phases.

He said as people in Pakistan say that a good neighbor is a blessing, “We in China say it is better to have a good neighbour than a distant relative.” Jiabao expressed the belief that the Pakistani people would be able to overcome all difficulties and assured that “the Chinese government and people would firmly stand by you to face all challenges together.”

He strongly voiced China’s stance against terrorism saying it must not be linked to any particular country or religion. “There should be no dual standards in this regard,” he said and called for making efforts for addressing the real reasons that lead to terrorism. “China’s stance is clear and consistent.
