China extends support to ‘Raad ul Fasaad’ military operation

BEIJING: China on Friday extended its support to military operation “Raad ul Fasaad” launched to eliminate residual threat of terrorism and extremism across Pakistan besides ensuring security of borders.

“China understand and support necessary measures taken by Pakistan to consolidate its position in counter terrorism operations, maintain domestic security and stability and safety of its people,” Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Geng Shuang remarked during a regular press briefing here.

He said, in recent years, Pakistan had rigorously made efforts to fight terrorism and made major progress.

When his attention was drawn towards fresh wave of terrorist attacks across Pakistan, he said, “We have noted the recent wave of terrorist attacks across the country.”

Geng Shuang extended deepest sympathies over the loss of innocent lives as result of these terrorist attacks.

When asked regarding measures including broad based counter terrorism operations, countrywide deweaponization and explosive control being taken under the new operation, he said, “We believe with joint efforts of Pakistani government, army and people, Pakistan will surely claim victory in its fight against terrorism.”
