BEIJING- China on Tuesday said it opposed the use of finance as a political measure to put pressure on Pakistan and asked the international community to objectively and justly treat the Pakistani anti-terrorist efforts, instead of simply blaming it.

The Pakistani government and people had made tremendous efforts and made great sacrifices for the international anti-terrorism cause.

Spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Geng Shuang expressed these views during his regular briefing here while responding to a question that some countries accused Pakistan of flaws in fighting terrorism financing in recent past.

He said “In recent years, in particular, Pakistan has actively taken a series of measures to strengthen financial supervision and crackdown on terrorist financing and made important progress,”

He said that all parties should objectively and justly treat the Pakistani anti-terrorist efforts, instead of simply blaming them. “We also oppose the use of finance as a political measure to put pressure on the Pakistani side,“ he added.

The spokesperson said that as an all-weather strategic partner, China and Pakistan would continue to step up coordination and cooperation on the anti-terrorism issue.

He said “Their political mutual trust will be unbreakable and neither will any attempt to leave the Sino-Pakistani relations.” - APP
