White House: China can convince Pakistan about crackdown on terror

Pakistan       by Muhammad Irfan | Published

China was quick to jump to Pakistan's defence when US President tweeted that his administration was stopping all aid to Islamabad for not using the money to flush out terrorists.

In the wake of increasing pressure from the United States on Pakistan for allegedly providing safe havens to militant outfits, China on Monday opposed the idea of linking terrorism to a certain nation as well as placing responsibility on a certain country, according to Radio Pakistan. "It won't serve China's interests to have terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan", the official said.

As per the sources from People's Liberation Army, China is looking to build a naval port in Pakistan's southern coast.

Chaturvedy added, "Indian naval capabilities and experience in the Indian Ocean region are fairly good - much better than Pakistan and China".

Rajeev Ranan Chaturvedy, a researcher at the National University of Singapore said, "Experts have noted that India is keeping a close eye on the development of China-Pakistan relations".

China-Pakistan relationship is already very strong and appeared unconcerned over reports that the U.S. decision to freeze approximately Dollars 2 billion in security assistance to Pakistan would push Islamabad towards Beijing, the official said. "It is taking a more active role in this regard".

"Ultimately, China is also working towards a stable Afghanistan".

It said: "The global community is aware of the incremental steps being taken by Pakistan that have brought about positive changes on ground". So that's one issue.

The media in China and overseas said that Pakistan offered the key location to China as a retaliation to US President Donald Trump's New Year Day criticism of Islamabad for not cracking down on terrorist safe havens in the country.

China defends its "iron-brother" Pakistan on the issue of terrorism. "The economic relationship is also growing with China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)", the senior administration official said on condition of anonymity.

The tensions between Pakistan and the U.S. escalated after President Donald Trump, in new year message, said the country has only given "lies and deceit" in exchange of $ 33 billion aid in last 15 years.
