Can't Use Terror To Promote Nation's Goals: China Backs India Stand On Pakistan

Noting that the world today is undergoing unprecedented changes that have not been seen in the past 100 years, Wang said China, Russia and India, as influential major powers and important emerging economies, should enhance coordination, converge consensus, cement cooperation and jointly promote world peace and stability.

They said "those committing, orchestrating, inciting or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable and brought to justice in accordance with existing worldwide commitments on countering terrorism", including the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, Security Council resolutions and FATF standards.

The meet is chaired by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and EAM Sushma Swaraj in attendance.

Speaking at the RIC or Russia, India, China foreign ministers meet in Wuzhen, China, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said, "Limited objective of pre-emptive strike was to act decisively against the terrorist infrastructure of JeM in order to pre-emptive another terror attack in India".

"The ministers strongly condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations".

They called on the three countries to give full play of multilateral platforms including the United Nations to further strengthen coordination and cooperation and make joint contributions to properly handle worldwide and regional hotspot issues and tackle challenges facing humanity.

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said a plan that doesn't establish a Palestinian state "will not fly". Israel pulled troops and settlers out of the Gaza Strip, now controlled by Hamas Islamists, in 2005.

He suggested that the three countries should firmly safeguard the global system with the United Nations (UN) as the core, and adhere to the principle of non-interference in internal affairs and deepen counter-terrorism and security cooperation. At the same time, we (China) believe Pakistan has always been opposed to terrorism.

Wang "reiterated his hope that both Pakistan and India will exercise restraint and earnestly fulfill their commitments to preventing the expansion of the situation", and said the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected, the statement said.

A senior Chinese diplomat expressed "deep concern" over the escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan on Wednesday, after the two countries said they shot down each other's fighter jets.

During a bilateral meeting with Wang on the margins of the RIC meet, Swaraj said the attack on India's soldiers in Pulwama was carried out by JeM under cover and impunity given by Pakistan.

The Pakistani violation was in retaliation of an Indian Air Force strike in Balakote, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan on Tuesday, to eliminate a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp. "This was not a military operation". That meeting was meant to reboot India-China ties, sullied by the previous 73-day Doklam military standoff.
