  • China skirts Masood Azhar issue after BRICS declaration

The call for action comes two weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump put Pakistan on notice to stop harboring Afghan militant groups that use Pakistani soil to plan and launch attacks against Afghan and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan.

Of the BRICS members, India and China are the only ones that border terrorism-linked Pakistan.

Describing Asif's visit as an "important event" between the two sides which will further the cooperation consensus reached between the two country's leaders, he said it will deepen political cooperation centered on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and promote coordination and communication on worldwide and regional affairs.

At the just concluded ninth BRICS Summit in Xiamen the BRICS leaders also condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations wherever committed and by whomsoever. Asif admitted that Pakistan had made mistakes in the past, saying there was no need for the country to participate in the proxy war in Afghanistan during Ziaul Haq's tenure, and later in the war on terror.

It said that the significance of the BRICS declaration that included a condemnation of violence in Afghanistan and a specific mention of the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad "should not be underestimated".

"But Pakistan, we reject this thing categorically, no terrorist organization has any complete safe havens". China can successfully defend its position in BRICS and its bilateral commitment to Pakistan, by keeping its hold on sanctions on Azhar at the UN. -China Economic and Security Review Commission in a report to Congress hinted that the "more frequent and high profile" terrorist attacks against China in recent years-stemming from Pakistan and to a lesser extent Afghanistan-have prompted Beijing to reconsider its assistance to Islamabad.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson said the visit of Pakistani Foreign Minister would be another important event between the two friendly Countries which would further help implement the cooperation consensus reached between the two leaders.

"Friends like China should not be tested every time, particularly in the changed (global) scenario", the minister added.
